Tanah Lot Temple 海神庙 | Bali Indonesia

Tanah Lot Temple, a place MUST visit when you travel to Bali, Indonesia. This temple located at coastal side of Beraban countryside, Kendiri sub district and Tabanan Regency. It tooks 45 mins from Ubud town. I know super long but you won't regret if you catch up their sunset :D

BUT too bad the day I visited, seawater rises on the day itself, and you will see the temple floated on the sea, and you're not able to approach it.

What so special about this temple is you only can go nearby this temple when the sea water go down during sunset. My bf manage to catch few super nice shoots last year October when the sea water all go down, till you can see the seaweed everywhere over your feet! 

Let's start my journey to Tanah Lot Temple! Reaching on 2nd day of Bali tour, super super HOT weather, and can't wait to 

Before entering Tanah Lot Temple, you will need to pay entrance fee, but ours included in Bali Tour. After entered, you will see Tanah Lot small market, which our tour guard didn't tell us that things over here actually cheaper than Ubud Art Market, till one of my colleague went to explore.

Although the variety not much, but for me actually that's more than enough LOL, too bad I didn't explore it out on the day itself :(

I got take few other pictures while walking into the Tanah Lot Temple.

There're quite a lot of coffee shops & small small stalls selling clothes, scarf and other local stuffs. which can get it cheaper here!

After a short short distance, then you will see this sign board before seeing Tanah Lot Temple from far away.

It is so far far away from us. You have to walk down to the Tanah Lot Temple, quite a distance. So if you travel at Bali, remember to wear a more comfortable shoes :D

That's really full of PEOPLE. BTW left side is all the way to some small small stores that sell slipper, clothes & some local things, while right side is all the way to the Tanah Lot Temple, if the water didn't raised.

Let's moved to left first, what's so special is, I noticed there's a musang! Then I only notice they're actually selling Civet/musang/luwak coffee! Means the musang (that's I normally call them :P) eat the coffee beans first, then after the bean will come out from the stool, and people retake it to produce become Lawak Coffee!

Yes, a bit disgusting but surprisingly it taste so GOOD. Sorry to say, I can't resist it! If you missed out this place, don't worry because most of the shopping mall, they got sell as well!

Other than that, I notice someone - BADMAN.

You will see Tanah Lot Temple if you moving to your right way. Too bad the water raised on the day itself. So you can't crossover and take nice picture with Tanah Lot Temple.

Also a short video on how strong is the sea water wave & safety guard called us to stay away from there! 2 of the tourists fell down from the sea water wave.

And my selfie with Tanah Lot Temple.

Yeah, I didn't see any SUNSET & can't approach the Tanah Lot Temple also. So sad T________T

But while my bf visited Bali last year together with his company trip & he took really nice scenes over Tanah Lot Temple!

Yes, when the sea water level go down, you can even see the SEAWEED!! Oh my cute bf toes :P

Also, you can even catch up with pretty sunset picture! So so nice right? Watching together with your loved one, going to be super romantic.

Ohya, personally like this place so much, although I don't have fate with sunset on the day itself, but hopefully I can go there once again together with my bf & enjoy our dinner while watching this amazing sunset scene!
