Tanah Lot area guide
Tanah Lot is a sacred destination in Bali due to the 15th century temple perched on the lip of a cliff. Against the backdrop of the Beraban countryside and the Indian Ocean you can experience a world bursting with beauty, mythology and unrivalled relaxation.
The Tanah Lot temple is noted as one of the most famous tourist destination in Bali. All though the area is among the more quite tourist areas in Bali you can find plenty to do in the Tanah Lot area; tiptoe through the hallowed temple, play a round of golf at one of Asia’s best golf course and watch the sunset drip into the sea.
The beaches in Tanah Lot are simply stunning, with the shadow of the Hindu temple casting its glance across the black sands. The rocky coastline offers panoramic sights to soothe tired eyes and its hidden coves make it the perfect place for a spot of romance. The waters are not recommended for safe swimming, but the beach is famed for its magnificent horse riding and glorious sunsets.
The perfect end to the perfect day is to sip on one of Tanah Lots specialty drinks; chilled young coconut known locally as Es Kelapa Muda. Nightlife in the Tanah Lot area is low key so if you are looking for a little late night excitement you are best taking the coastal road down to nearby Seminyak or Kuta.
If you are seeking more than your average beach holiday and you want a location filled with spiritual wonder, history and romance then Tanah Lot is your floating wonderland.
