Day 4: Wednesday
This morning, you will depart for Tanah Lot Temple in South Bali. With its spectacular location, Tanah Lot is an integral part of Balinese mythology and one of seven sea temples that are said to form a ‘chain’ around the island. The temple is only accessible at low tide but despite its off-shore location in the Indian Ocean, it features a fresh water spring at its base which is said to contain holy water. As a result the temple is extremely sacred and Balinese visit from all over the island to drink the water and splash it over their bodies in order to cleanse themselves of any bad spirits. The temple’s inner sanctum is located on top of the rocky outcrop and only accessible to Balinese Hindus. Later head to Seminyak Bali's most stylish and upscale beach resort area, which is host to a number of fine restaurants and boutiques. After the sun goes down a livelier nightlife scene takes over. You will spend the next 3 nights at The Breezes Seminyak or similar. (B)
