'''Tanah Lot''' is a
small coastal village in [[South Bali]] north of the greater [[Kuta]] area.
Once you have fought your way through the souvenir vendors to the beach, you will see the magnificent temple perched on a rock just a few metres offshore. There is a footpath to the raised cliff area just to the south from where the views of the temple and the sunset behind it are outstanding. Photo-opportunities abound. Entry fee is Rp 10,000.
'''Restoration of the Temple'''. A comprehensive restoration programme started in the 1990s when it was realised that the rock was seriously eroded and in danger of collapse. This major work resulted in the actual temple being out of bounds which
was still intermittently the case in early 2009. This is not really a hindrance to visitors though as entrance to the actual temple is not the key attraction . Reading: Secrets of Bali, Fresh Light on the Morning of the World, Jonathan Copeland in consultation with Ni Wayan Murni, Gateway Books International, 2008.
Play Golf .''' The superb Nirwana Golf Course [http://www.nirwanabaligolf.com/] is adjacent to Tanah Lot to the south. This Greg Norman designed course is consistently voted as one of the very best in the whole of Asia. Stunning cliff top setting. Packages are normally available (ask at your hotel). Expect to pay US$ 170 to 200 per round all in.
Visit Pejaten''' village . This is the centre of the ceramics manufacturing business in Bali and well worth a visit. About 7 km north from Tanah Lot temple.
Virtually all of the restaurants at Tanah Lot serve Es Kelapa
Mudah (chilled young coconut). This is a lovely refreshing option while watching the sun go down at Tanah Lot.
