How to go to Pura Tanah Lot;
I visited Pura Tanah Lot via a hired motorbike with a driver for an afternoon temples tour starting from 1200H until 1900H. Negotiated fare was 300,000IDR($25.86) for a round-trip from my hostel in Kuta going to the famous 3 temples nearby, entrance fee's excluded. Admission fee costs 30,000IDR($2.60). Photography and video, monopod/tripod, is permitted inside

Tanah Lot is one of the important directional temples in Bali. The temple is located on a rock just offshore. It is said to be the work of revered 15th century Hindu priest Nirartha and forms an important element of Balinese spirtualism and mythology. This is an extremely popular tourist destination and the whole area is often very busy indeed, especially in the late afternoons, pre-sunset. The area between the car park (Rp 5,000 per vehicle) and the beach adjacent to the temple is a maze of souvenir shops selling just about every Balinese trinket imaginable. 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
