What to Expect
During your walk towards the beach that paves the way for this amazing attraction, you’ll have to navigate a bustling street that is lined with smaller shrines and restaurants. Once you reach the beach, you will be treated to the majestic views of a majestic rock formation, which acts as a pedestal to the venerated site: Pura Tanah Lot.
After many a century of massive waves constantly crashing at the rock base, Tanah Lot appeared to have faced the threat of erosion. Local authorities launched procedures to preserve it with the help of the Japanese government.
