Sunset and Kecak Fire Dance at Uluwatu Temple

Sunset and Kecak Fire
Dance at Uluwatu Temple

Watch the sunset from the spectacular cliff-hanging temple of Uluwatu, perched above
the crashing waves of the Indian Ocean. Enjoy a dramatic Kecak fire dance performed
against the backdrop of this sacred sea temple and the atmospheric evening sky.


Perched precipitously on the top of a sheer cliff, approximately 70 metres above the crashing waves of the Indian Ocean, is the Uluwatu Temple. Also known as Pura Luhur Uluwatu, this was built in the 11th century. It is one of the nine directional temples of Bali and is believed to protect the island from evil spirits.

In the old Balinese language, the word luhur means ‘something of divine origin’, ulu means the ‘land’s end’ and watu means ‘rock. The name describes perfectly what this spectacular sea temple represents. The captivating Kecak fire dance, one of Bali’s most iconic performances, is held most evenings at sunset at the nearby amphitheatre.

16:30 - 19:30

Explore one of Bali’s leading temples as the sun goes down, a truly spiritual experience! We head to the southern-western tip of the island to visit the 11th century Uluwatu Temple, one of six prominent shrines recognized as one of Bali’s ‘spiritual pillars.’ This exquisite structure is located on a cliff, 70 metres above the sea with an amazing panorama, especially as the sun sinks into the ocean.

There is also the possibility to watch a Kecak Dance performance near this site. This is a Balinese Hindu dance and music routine developed in the 1930s. Also known as the Ramayana monkey chant, this is performed by a circle of performers wearing checked cloths around their waists who shout percussive chants as they dance.

Afterwards, return to the hotel, or enjoy dinner at an optional restaurant (charged to your own account).
