Visitors to Tanah Lot182 viewsEach sunset sees many tourists and locals visiting Tanah Lot, as its location on the south-west coast of Bali makes it an idea location for viewing the sunsets. Under the cliffs on the right of the picture, holy coral snakes live, which you can see for a suitable donation.
