Photo Diary: Bali’s Stunning Sunsets

I’m a big fan of sunsets, and I love Bali’s sunsets a lot. Here are a few places where I saw the sunset at!

Breathtaking Bali Sunset at Uluwatu Temple

Uluwatu Temple is one of the places you must visit in Bali. Perched 80m above sea level on a cliff, facing the Indian Ocean, Uluwatu Temple is a place where I totally enjoyed watching the sunset at. There are dress codes to follow before you’re allowed to enter. We (even the guys) were given boldly-colored sarongs at the entrance, to wrap around our lower bodies, over our shorts.

Over here, there are hundreds of wild monkeys roaming freely, so be mindful or they might quickly snatch away your hats, sunglasses or even cameras.

Sunset at Kuta Beach

Kuta beach is another popular destination among tourists and surfers in Bali, and I caught the sunset from the beach.

An Egg Yolk Sunset at Bali’s Airport

While waiting for our flight at the airport, the sun was setting outside the glass windows. It was so beautiful to watch!

Getting around Bali:
For both my trips, we hired Balinese drivers for full days if necessary, who will send us to where we want to go. Bali’s public transport system is not very developed and hence, drivers make a job out of this.

  1. Hi Kristine,
    I can relate to the captivating, awesome, marvellous, splendid and noteworthy moments associated with sun sets.
    Yes, evenings become special and coveted while witnessing sun sets, especially if its sets in the sea(atleast that’s what give us impression about)
    Yes, you indeed made by day and thanks for sharing.
    I would love to visit the place for its magnificent beauty to say the least.

  2. Hi Kristine,

    If the opening hours of Uluwatu Temple is from 9am to 6pm, how are we going to stay till the sun sets?

    And also, is Uluwatu Temple very far away from Ubud?

    1. Hi Winnie, I went this temple a long time ago so I can’t rem the timings, but we had hired a day driver so we weren’t too worried as he would have planned and advised accordingly. This place to me felt more of like an open area instead of just a temple, though you still need pay an entrance charge + put on the sarongs. In fact, I don’t recall even entering the interior of a temple?!? Now that you mentioned, lol. Towards the left side of the cliff, there’ll be kecak performance and crowds which continue after sunset (I left and saw it was going on). So, if you’re hiring a driver, you can check with him.

      Watch out for the monkeys there though, they’re notorious for snatching dangling, unguarded items.

      Ubud to Uluwatu temple is about 2 hours a drive away.

      Hope this helps!
