You can also buy bananas at the entrance to feed the monkeys, but take care as they're not shy and will often climb right up onto you or try and sneakily get in to your bag.

The Sacred Monkey Forest is open daily from 8.30 am to 6.30 pm.

3. Temples - Tanah Lot & Pura Luhur Uluwatu


To add a little cultural activity to your Bali visit, why not visit the sacred temple of Tanah Lot perched on a rock in the sea. Get there early to avoid the sunset crowds, and take a wander around the small shops, local warungs and market stalls.

The clifftop temple at Uluwatu is also worth a visit with the kids. With breathtaking ocean views, the temple is home to cheeky monkeys who aren't afraid to come up close visitors, so keep an eye on your little ones. A traditional Kecak dance performance is held every day at sunset, and is great entertainment for the whole family.
