The Kecak dance is unique, with a group of men in traditional Balinese dress chanting and moving in sync to tell a story from the Hindu mythology of Ramayana.


In the afternoon around 15.00, you will be picked up and drive to watch the Kecak Dance.  The dance takes place at the Uluwatu Temple, a stunning temple perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The location and the sunset views provide a spectacular backdrop to the performance.


Enjoy the Traditional Kecak Dance, a dramatic performance lasting about 45 minutes, where 25-50 dancers chant “cak” and throw up their arms, depicting a battle from the Ramayana where monkeys help Prince Rama fight the evil King Ravana. The Uluwatu Kecak dance usually starts at sunset, around 6 pm. 


The dance will be performed on an open stage on a cliff in the Uluwatu Temple complex, and in the background, a beautiful sunset colors the sky orange as it slowly disappears away, replaced by the moon at night.


It is recommended to arrive early to secure a good seat, and to dress appropriately for a temple visit - no shorts or sleeveless tops.
