When it comes to sunsets in Bali, Uluwatu is definitely one of the best locations to view this daily spectacle that can paint the sky in fiery or pastel hues. Here are some of the key spots to view sunsets in Uluwatu.
Perched on a rock overlooking the vast ocean, the sacred Uluwatu Temple offers a perfect backdrop to capture a stunning sunset and experience the rich local culture too. Generally, 4 pm to 6 pm is the best time to head here and staying at nearby Uluwatu hotels makes planning a visit easier; do keep in mind a weekday visit will usually mean fewer crowds than weekends.
Cliff Top Hotels
While popular sunset viewpoints can get crowded, a quieter and more relaxed alternative will be a hotel on a cliff by the beach. Such properties which include the likes of Alila Villas Uluwatu provide uninterrupted vistas, perfect for catching a sunset and enjoying your favourite cocktail.
A relatively hard to access beach, this beautiful stretch of shore offers another fabulous viewpoint to catch a Bali sunset. Apart from the shoreline, there is also a close by rock which provides a lofty vantage point that is particularly popular amongst photographers.
Overlooking the ocean, Single Fin is one of the most well-known bars in Uluwatu and offers the ideal laid-back venue to soak up island vibes and glorious sunsets. With a range of drinks and yummy dishes on offer too, it is the perfect place to unwind as you join the sun in bidding the day adieu.
