  • Uluwatu began life as a surfer's haven. Now the area has sprouted an impressive collection of expensive villas and resorts as well. So if you like some luxury activities, this is the place to be! When you wish to spoil yourself with luxury combined with breath taking view across the great Indian ocean, Uluwatu can fulfill your desires!

    The divine architecture of the Luhur temple attracts most of the travelers, an absolute must-see.

The sun setting is just awesome and the whole experience is priceless. Take a peek on the blue sea water, hear the sounds of the waves and here I called it the great wall of Uluwatu.

    Here are 10 Things to do in Uluwatu:

  • 04Visit Uluwatu Temple

    Uluwatu Temple, or Pura Luhur Uluwatu, one of six fundamental temples thought to be Bali's holy pillars, is famous for its majestic location, rested on top of a sheer cliff approximately 70 metres above sea level. This temple also yields the marvelous sunset backdrops as that of Tanah Lot Temple located on the island's western shores. This temple is unquestionably one of the top points on the island to enjoy the stunning sunset delight, with uninterrupted views overlooking the gorgeous Indian Ocean. Balinese structure, traditionally-designed gateways and antiquated sculptures add to Uluwatu Temple's appeal. Without an uncertainty, what makes Uluwatu Temple spectacular is its cliff-top environment at the end of a plateau 250 feet above the waves of the Indian Ocean. Several archaeological relics found here confirm the temple to be of megalithic origin, dating back to the 10th century. There are two entrances to Uluwatu Temple, from the south and the north.

  • 06Get ready for a fire dance - Kecak

    Get ready for a fire dance - Kecak
    As one of fascinating dance performances, the Kecak dance, also named as the monkey chant or the fire dance due to its association with tall fire torch as its centerpiece, is one of the island’s most famous performances. It features a dramatic live performance of an episode from the Ramayana epic, expressly involving the monkey army and its main warriors and adversaries, namely Rama and Sita, and the wicked Ravana. The absence of any instrumental accompaniment throughout the performances makes the Kecak dance novel, and the only strains are the result of the polyrhythmic singing by the male dancers, sounding like ‘keh-chuck’, giving the dance its name. The best place to witness the show is at the open amphitheater near to the Uluwatu Temple, which uses the setting sun and ocean skyline as its hypnotic theatrical backdrop.

    Timings: Opened daily from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM.

  • 07Beat the heat at Blue Point

    " Blue Point also known as Suluban Beach, is one of Bali’s most unprecedented coasts, hidden by natural limestone structures and accessed via steps and log ramps through tight gaps in the rock. Canopied by a looming rock face, this small beach may not be ideal for sunbathers, but offers pro surfers well as a base. There are numerous rocky openings and mini caves that you can explore around the beach and even claim as a leisurely spot for the day, and which also leads to multiple divisions of the beach. The best time to visit is during low tide, which exposes more spaces and accessible sandy trails. Be sure to watch the tides, as currents can be powerful, and waves can smash through cave openings, sometimes posing a hazard. Suluban Beach is also not prescribed for young children.

    How to Reach: The beach lies at the end of Jalan Mamo in the coastal area of Labuan Sait and can be easily accessed by hotel shuttle, taxi or motorbike.
