Its a long paddle about 3-400m from Peaks at Uluwatu, or walk along the cliffs and paddle at mid tides.Low tide doesnt work too good. Another 300m further up is 'Temples' proper. There are 2 small lefts here, between the Bombie and Temples, that only work on mid to high tides.

Further up about 300m from 'Peaks' and about 100m 'The Bombie' are 2 more little lefts before you get to 'Temples', at the end of the long cliffs. These 2 lefts work from 2-4 feet, mid to high tides, both over about 50-100m, they get quite sucky, fast, and do barrel, but can also shut down suddenly. The lower one is usually better, a bit like Racetrack but without the crowds, when working. You can see it break from the cliffs at Uluwatu, but it only works on mid-higher tides and when small. When its bigger than 3-4 feet it breaks way further out, but then isnt much good.
You can get a pretty decent, long, small green barrel here without the crowds, but not too big. The wave spins like a vortex and 'slides' along the reef, propelling you through the tube when its on. It does get pretty shallow.
Pretty decent wave when working, but only small tubes (to about head high and a half).
Nice escape from crowds
