Green Bowl Beach Bali is one of the best beaches in the south. With it’s turquiose water’s and powdery white sand, here’s all the info for visiting.
For those staying in Uluwatu, it’s super close and perfect for a chilled day out.
With a pathed stairway leading the way down from the carpark, it’s not too hard to locate and really is a mini slice of heaven.
We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves. However be sure to read up on our Renting A Scooter In Bali guide beforehand! If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a trusted scooter rental here.

We’d seen Green Bowl Beach Bali come up as a recommendation on google, and after visiting Melasti Beach had to pop over and check it out for ourselves.
It’s easy enough to find and with a huge car park / warung area at the start point it’s a pretty straight forward walk down.
Although be prepared on arrival. You’ll have to fight off both the wild monkeys and the bracelet selling locals. We’re not sure which were more persistent.
You’ll need to descend hundreds of concrete steps down a cliff face to what has to be one of the best Bali beaches. Going back up can be a challenge, but the scenic bird’s eye view keeps you going along the way.
The Beach Itself
Green Bowl Beach is definitely one of the best white sand beaches in Bali.
The sand is crisp, the water is crystal clear and the chill spot all in all is paradise.
This 30-metre coastal strip with coarse white sand is located at the bottom of a 75-metre-tall cliff. At the base, you’ll come across 2 large limestone caves that house small rock shrines. They also provide shade and shelter for beachgoers and surfers throughout the day.
There isn’t drinks or refreshments down at the beach so be sure to take plenty of water with you.
For us, Green Bowl Beach Bali is a must if you’re heading down south to check out the Uluwatu beaches. We went down for the evening with friends and it made for a beautiful spot to hang out before sunset.
