Had a good afternoon with our guide Topan! I can really recommend visiting the Tanah Lot temple and the area around it, it was very beautiful and peaceful and there were not so much people than i expected. We had a lot of time to wait until the sunset, but there are some bars and restaurants where you have a great view of the beach with the temple! Just inform about the weather before to make sure you will see a beautiful sunset.

We found this trip very enjoyable, beautiful scenery, although busy still felt tranquil. Our guide, Bello, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable about the temple and history which added to our enjoyment. Highly recommended.

Great place and a great driver and a great tour guide. Will recommend to my friends

We had a great time with our guide Bello and the temple and sunset were beautiful!
