GREEN BOWL BEACH BALI – AN ULUWATU GEM

GREEN BOWL BEACH BALI – AN ULUWATU GEM

Green Bowl Beach Bali is one of the best, most secluded beaches in the Bukit Peninsula, South Bali. Green Bowl Beach sits at the base of verdant cliffs next to a small village known as Ungasan.

Curious to know what Camera Gear & Travel Essentials I carry while backpacking around the world? I have put together THIS LIST of items to consider packing on your next adventure!

HOW TO GET TO GREEN BOWL BEACH BALI

If you are staying in the Uluwatu region you can rent a scooter for approximately 50,000 IDR per day and make your way over to Green Bowl Beach on the very southern tip of the Bukit Peninsula. If you are coming from Kuta, Seminyak and Canggu it is approximately a 1-hour to 1.5-hour journey to Green Bowl Beach Bali.

For scooter rentals, you can ask your accommodation to help you organise this and they are always able to help. Alternatively,  keep your eyes peeled along the main roads in the Uluwatu region and you will be sure to find a scooter rental shop.

ARRIVING AT GREEN BOWL BEACH BALI

You will arrive at a large carpark at the top of the cliffs at Green Bowl Beach and have to pay a small parking fee of 2,000 IDR (20c). Small warungs and convenient shops line the edge of the carpark if you wish to grab a meal and drinks before heading down to Green Bowl Beach Bali.

To access Green Bowl Beach Bali, you will have to descend the 300 odd concrete steps down to the beach. Mind your hat and any other loose items you may have on your person as the monkeys swinging around in the treetops are cheeky and can potentially rob you.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT GREEN BOWL BEACH BALI

The hike down to Green Bowl Beach can be daunting at first but once you make the hike down you will soon see why it is worth the adventurous efforts. A small patch of glistening white sand, no more than 50 meters long, gives you a sense of being on a castaway island. The turquoise water to go with will have you in disbelief that such places exist. I wandered through the shallow waters and discovered how incredibly crystal clear it was, practically so see-through and it seemed as if the water wasn’t even there.

Apart from the pristine beach, Green Bowl is a popular spot for die-hard surfers. The reef break just offshore produces excellent swell and it is far less crowded than the more popular beaches Uluwatu Point and Padang Padang.

On low tide at Green Bowl Beach Bali, you can wander around the caves and further down the coastline to discover other secluded sandy areas and dozens of rock pools.
