Uluwatu is a coastal locality in the island of Bali. Uluwatu is regarded as being a location that allows visitors to explore the history and beauty of Bali and, thus, offers many cool things to do.


Witness the view from Pura Luhur Uluwatu

Pura Luhur Uluwatu, also known colloquially as the Uluwatu Temple, is the top attractions in Uluwatu. Perched on top of an ocean cliff, the Uluwatu Temple is known for giving its visitors one of the most breathtaking views of the ocean and the sunset. While the panoramic view from the cliff-top is the highlight of this temple, the architecture and blissful spiritual ambiance of the temple are also features that you shouldn't miss out on. Since many visitors come to see the sunset, most tourists make the trip to the Uluwatu Temple at about 4.00pm so that they can see the glorious view of the sunrise and also be on time to witness the famed and legendary Kecek traditional dance performance at the temple.


Chill on Nyang Nyang Beach

If you were to ask any local at Uluwatu what the best beach in the area is, the answer is almost certainly going to be Nyang Nyang Beach. Nyang Nyang Beach is known for its untarnished strip of white sandy beach that stretches for quite a distance. The waters off the beach are warm and excellent for swimming and watersports such as surfing. The beach is not crowded, making it an ideal place for visitors to go and chill out on with a beer or a cocktail, or, if you are the type, to have an adventure exploring this secluded beach. One of the highlights of the beach is a wreck that has washed up ashore; which has now become a popular place to take photos. Nyang Nyang Beach, however, is a bit of a challenge to get to, but trust us when we say that it is sure to be worth the effort!
