Well, here it is !


Uluwatu Monkey Forest surrounds the cliff edges near the namesake temple, where hordes of grey long-tailed macaques dwell, adding an exotic and animate feature to the splendid landmark, together with its splendid sea and sunset backdrop.

Regular pilgrims face all sorts of mild mishaps, be it a man’s traditional headdress being seized and taken high up into the trees to never return to its rightful owner, or a playful pair snatching at fruit offerings that haven’t even properly been ‘presented’ to the gods of the temple beforehand. Thick hedges of green shrubs and plants dot the white cliff face, with frangipani trees, and these simians dominating most of the Bukit area.

These little furry dwellers of the Uluwatu Monkey Forest – and most of the Bukit forests – share the common playful characteristics of those in Bali’s other notable monkey forests such as Sangeh and Ubud. In fact, the whole Bukit coastline can be considered as ‘monkey forests’. Patches along the cliffs are inhabited, from the southernmost tip at the Bulgari Resort, and all the way up to Pecatu in the western parts.


Besides ‘monkey business’, Uluwatu also has been known as one of the major surf spots with its reef quality waves. Thick hedges of green over white chalk rocks, frangipanis, and realms of the mischievous simians dominating the high cliff shores of most of the Bukit area, add to the picturesque appeal for visitors and photography enthusiasts.

While virtually all of the temple grounds, being accessible to the monkeys, play open stage to their playful exploits once in a while, the surrounding hilly forests outside the temple complex are where they are truly at home. The monkeys are known to come out of their forest dwellings and linger around onto the pathways in the afternoon and down to sunset.
