Tanah Lot temple
The Tanah Lot temple is a very popular tourist attraction only 10 km west from Canggu. During the day this site can get very busy, so we would recommend to go here with sunset. The view with sunset is breathtaking as the site is facing west where the sun goes down. And when the sun is set, there will start another show. Thousands of bats will fly out of their caves and put on a show you might have never seen before! Such a spectacular natural phenomenon.
As the site is pretty big, you might not know where to go the first time (as we had.. we walked to the wrong side…) When you’ve parked your bike at the car park, you have to go to the right side. There you will see the ‘main’ temple where you will have the best view on the ocean, temple and sunset.
