Bali tours to Uluwatu

Discover Uluwatu

You’ll also enjoy the Kecak Fire Dance and visit the Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park for a total immersion into Balinese history and culture.

End your tour at beautiful Jimbaran Beach for the sunset over the ocean and some of the best cuisine and seafood on the island.

Like all our tours, we begin at your hotel at a time that is convenient for you. Please remember, the earlier you begin, the more you can see throughout the day. Our friendly English-speaking driver will pick you up in an air-conditioned van and take you wherever you want to go first.

Our drivers know traffic and crowds very well so they’ll make recommendations, but a typical tour may look like this:

After picking you up in our air conditioned van, you may be taken to Uluwatu Temple or Padang Padang Beach, one of Bali’s most spectacular beaches. Don’t worry, if the waves are big, they break outside of the reef and far from the shore. You’ll be able to enjoy watching surfers get barrelled in waves to your left. Padang Padang is called the Pipeline of Bali, but if you want to rent a board and try surfing yourself, there are usually very easy waves to the right – perfect for beginners.

At Uluwatu Temple, enjoy strolling the grounds and through the paths along the cliffs with some of the most spectacular ocean views in Bali. Watch out for the monkeys, they’ve been known to snatch purses, hats and cameras. They’ll hold them hostage and barter for a piece of fruit.

Later, your driver will take you to Garuda Wisnu Kencana Cultural Park (entrance fee is usually IDR 100,000). There you’ll walk the grounds and view some of the ancient artifacts and enormous statues dedicated to Hindu gods such as Visnu. There are many cultural performances throughout the day and you’ll end your visit with the captivating Kecak Dance with fire and story-telling.

Your tour will end with a  sunset dinner at Jimbaran Beach where you’ll enjoy some of the finest seafood Bali has to offer. Afterward, our driver will take you back to your hotel for the evening.
