Very scenic temple surrounded by water. I could not stay back till sunset since I had reached during the midday. The place is worth visit and one could typically spent 1 hour here.

The temple it self is small and build on a small rock. You're not allowed to go up the rock or inside the temple since its still in use. When its low tide you can walk close up to it for some pictures or get "blessed" along with a million other tourists for a small donation. I enjoyed the ocean... More

Tanah lot has 3 temples. We were there around 2 pm to avoid big crowds and it was just perfect(weather was nice). Peaceful place for a walk and take pics!

Especially during sunsets, this place is full of tourists. No entry to the temple. Nice place but not great.

Visited this temple after review from tripadvisor. Is far from kuta and I don't think it is very much worth the visit. A km of stalls and then a temple on the beach. Entry to the temple is not there. Watch from a distance. Beach is also rocky and slightly risky to walk. Worst part is to pay for using... More

Do not expect romantic sunset Like you see on photos. What you do. It see are milions of tourists walking around the nice park and the temple. Still it Is must see while in Bali. The best spot for sunset viewing (cca 6. P.M.) Is from terraces above the temple.

When entered through the entrance of the temple we saw breath taking views of the ocean. Surfers surfing, and waves splashing though making it more scenic like paintings.

First things first: this is one of the busiest tourist sights in Bali - it was heaving with visitors! We were fortunate that the tide was out so we could go down onto the causeway for photos. It's certainly different and of great importance in the religious history of Bali. Once you leave the causeway and go up the steps,... More

Lovely and cheap little market stalls lead up to the Tanah Lot Temple which in itself is fantastic viewing. Worth the drive to see the temple and get a blessing with Holy Water and rice for a small donation. Walking across some of the sea water to get to the temple is required. There is also 2 Holy nakes to... More
