Located at the Beraban village, Tabanan regency, Bali 's southwestern coast, Tanah Lot is famous as the place of holiest temples on the island and the sunset above the Indian Ocean. With the black sand, Tanah Lot coast is not recommended for surfing for the beginners but it's great for watching the spectacular sunset above the Indian Ocean.

The spectacularly placed Tanah Lot is possibly the best known and most photographed temple in Bali, especially at sunset. The temple perchedon a little rocky islet, looks superb whether delicately lit by the dawn light or starkly outlined at sunset. Tanah Lot is closely associated with the 16th-century Majapahit priest Niratha. It's said that Niratha passed by here and impressed with the tiny island's superb setting, suggested to local villagers that this would be a good place to construct a temple. Some hotspot to watched and photographed the sunset are at Sunset Terrace which located at north side of Tanah Lot Temple, Batubolong Temple which located in Enjung Galuh area, and as long as surrounding Tanah Lot Temple area.
