One of Bali’s most important religious sites, this temple perched atop a cliff hovering over 200 feet above the sea in the town of Pecatu is also one of the most visually stunning. Arrive before sunset, let the kids marvel at the monkeys (secure all loose items, as they will surely grab them!), then watch the sun sink into the ocean while it paints the temple, which dates to the 11th century, in an ethereal shade of gold. Balinese make pilgrimages here from all over the island to make offerings here, and respectfully observing them makes for a great cultural moment. Wear pants that cover your knees and, please, no tank tops, to show respect. And if you choose to enter the temple grounds themselves, you’ll need to rent a sarong to be properly covered.
