Green Bowl Beach Bali is one of the best beaches in the south. With its turquiose waters 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 Bali Scooter or Motorbike Rental with Delivery.
Another option is to hire a Bali Private Car or Minibus Charter With Driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).
For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.
It is free to visit Green Bowl Beach.
Green Bowl Beach Opening Times
Monday – Sunday: 7am – 6pm.
Best Time To Visit Green Bowl Beach
The best beach weather in Bali is during the dry season which runs from April to October.
Green Bowl Beach is a great place to visit at any time of the day. Although it can get quite busy with surfers, so if you’re looking for a quiet time then early in the day is probably best.
There is a very strong current here, so you need to be an experienced surfer to go out on the waves at Green Bowl Beach.
It’s quite a long walk down hundreds of steps to reach the beach so save some energy for the return trip!
Furthermore, there are no refreshments on the beach, so make sure to take some with you.
Remember to check the tides as the beach is not really accessible at high tide.
What To Pack
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, with a huge car park / warung area at the start point. It’s also 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 also 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 however, the scenic bird’s eye views keep you going along the way.
Also, check the tides before making the descent as high tides restrict access to the beach. While low tides expose pools that are great for discovering local marine life as well as exposing the beautiful sand beach.
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.
Green Bowl Beach is known as one of the best surfing spots on the island for experienced surfers, having one of the strongest currents.
There aren’t any drinks or refreshments for sale 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.
