Uluwatu is an vast limestone peninsula on the southwestern corner of Bali in Indonesia. Renowned for its fantastic surfing conditions which locals believe are a blessing from the Gods, the region attracts many a surfer in search of the perfect wave. Indulge your inner history and culture enthusiast with a visit to Pura Luhur Uluwatu Temple. Set atop a cliff, this 11th century structure is one of nine key directional temples in Bali and requires visitors to undergo a sacred ritual before you can enter. Watch a mischievous band of monkeys at work on the temple premises, who have perfected the art of bartering with locals for fruit! Just underneath the temple lies a stunning rock formation carved out by angry waves over millennia. Enjoy the breathtaking panorama as the narrow strip of gold meets the ocean while you walk down the trail taken by surfers heading to their paradise.
