Sunset Over Uluwatu & Kecak
Perched approximately 70 metres above sea level atop a steep cliff, the temple also has one of the most dramatic locations on the island and is the perfect vantage point from which to observe the huge waves as they
roll in from the Indian Ocean and crash against the rock face below.
One of the highlights of this excursion is the opportunity to witness a traditional display of Kecak dance, which is regularly performed at Uluwatu. The Kecak dance features up to a hundred male performers who form a circleand sway and chant to hypnotic music. This ritual dance is based on an ancient story from the great Hindu epic, the Ramayana. King Rahwana captures Sita, the wife of Rama and the drama depicts the battle between King Rahwana and the monkey god, Hanuman.
A seductive crescent of white sand and blue sea, Jimbaran Bay has a reputation for having some of the best seafood restaurants on the island and after your visit to Uluwatu you will have the chance to dine in one of the
best Beach Clubs in the bay. The delicious seafood rijstaffel (selection of dishes) and ambient beachside location provide the perfect end to a perfect day.
(*) Please note there are macaque monkeys at Uluwatu Temple and they can be a considerable annoyance. Please heed the advice
from your guide on the precautions you should take when visiting temples or forests inhabited by monkeys.
