Uluwatu Land Tour
This Bali tour starts at 08:00 am from our hotel in Padangbai and will lead you to the South tip of Bali where we will make the first stop at the famous Uluwatu temple. Dating back to the 11th century, this temple sits on a 70 meters high cliff what also describes its name with “Ulu” meaning top and “Watu” meaning rock or stone. Not only does it offer stunning views, but it is also believed to protect the island from the South.
The Bali Uluwatu temple is the kingdom of the macaque monkeys which are believed to protect it from negative spirits. They are known to be rather cheeky so beware of your jewelry, caps or anything else the monkeys might like to steal from you.
