Bali. The destination seems to evoke the traveler’s image of a paradise. Yes, and with good reason. On the island where author Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat, Pray, Love) found her love, there is certainly much to love; the landscapes, the culture, the jungle, the beaches, and yes the sunsets.
On the west coast of Bali, where the sea surrounds the Tanah Lot Hindu temple (at high tide) people gather to watch something special, something spiritual. Many walk along the rocky coastline and the black sand beaches while others stay perched upon the cliff at local Pan Pacific Resort (formerly the Le Meriden Hotel). But whatever people decide, all prepare with the same anticipation for the sunset behind the Hindu Temple on the Indian Ocean.
With two nights, I did both. The image below, my first night (perched on a cliff) was an afternoon spent sipping a cocktail and savoring the special moment. Enjoying some of the true beauty of Bali – its Sunsets. Happy Sunset Sunday.
