Uluwatu

Places of interest :: Uluwatu is one of tourist places and destination in Bali,  Uluwatu is its surfing breaks and kecak performances with the sunset background, below is the information.

On the southern coast of Bali is the towering tableland of Bukit, which drops dramatically into the sea at the sheer cliffs of Uluwatu. Uluwatu lies at the southern tip of Bali in Badung Regency. Dedicated to the spirits of the sea, the famous Pura Luhur Uluwatu temple is an architectural wonder in black coral rock, beautifully designed with spectacular views. Uluwatu Temple is a classic expression of ancient Bali in a spectacular setting, high above the crashing waves. This is one of the oldest and most important temples in Bali, one of the six original ‘Sad Kahyangan’ (territorial) temples on the island.

These beaches are popular among surfers. Lack of supporting facilities is not an obstacle for tourist with adventure spirit to conquer the waves. Uluwatu has, in recent years become equally known as the site of the renowned surf break, which offers real challenges (experienced surfers only) in the water, and spectacular views from the warungs (restaurants) perched on the cliff. Access is difficult (though porters are available), please bring suitable footwear and dress with respect for the temple.

Another interest of Uluwatu is its surfing breaks, there are actually five breaks that are named outside corner, the peak, racetracks and the bombie. The peak and the racetrack are the most consistent waves here that rarely flat due to Uluwatu being the swell’s first stop after Antarctica. The other breaks come into play when the swell gets big and can be epic although unless this is the case then the water can be very crowded. There are safe areas to swim on the beach but there can be very strong swells around the cave that can rip you straight into the racetrack that is a powerful barrel breaking onto shallow reef.

In the end of visit , we able to see kecak performances with the sunset background, dramatizing the Hindu epic Ramayana. A Kecak performance is very simple. The men’s chorus chants the words Cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak ke-cak, in rhythm, over and over again, For this reason they are called the Kecak or Cak dance. The Kecak dances consist of about fifty men wearing only a loin-cloth, the upper part of their bodies left bare.
