Green Bowl Beach

"A quiet and secluded beach, which can be found by climbing down some 300 steps on the rock edge. Beautiful blue ocean, white sands and very few people. We arrived around 2pm & the tide was quite far in so there was little beach to sit on so most people were sat within the caves & the sand was very wet - would advise bringing a sarong or something to sit on. As the tide was in & the beach is within a cove, the current was very strong in all directions so recommend only going if you're a very strong swimmer or once the tide has gone out a bit. I was tossed around quite a lot & it felt quite dangerous. Also definitely buy water at the top as there is nowhere once you're down."

          Green Bowl Beach is one of Bali's most secluded beaches, a small 30m coastal white sand beach, located about 75m under a green cliff in the village of Ungasan (15km drive from Kuta). It is located like Suluban Beach on the southern peninsula.
A steep descent of the stairs ensures that this piece of beach has an appeal to adventurous weekenders and surfers. They are attracted to the unpopulated waves and the exotic location.

Among the details of Green Bowl Beach are two large limestone caves, serving as a small shrine to you and give shade and protection to beachers and surfers against the sun. The best time to go is during ebb when you can snorkel in the calm crystal clear water. With the fairly constant waves, surfers can easily paddle over natural reef barriers.

Conversely during high tide, most of this small beach is flooded, sometimes even up to the cliff rock and caves. Most people come in the early mornings, with some drinks and simple picnic snacks. They spend half or even throughout the day. At the top of the stairs, on the cliff and next to a temple you can watch the waves of the ocean before stopping the stairs.
Getting to Green Bowl Beach is relatively easy; The Jalan Dharmawangsa in Nusa Dua and Jalan Pura Batu Pageh will take you straight to the abandoned Bali Cliff Resort. The temple is on the left side of the resort entrance, with a parking lot for the temple, which is managed by a ticket vendor.

 

There is enough parking space for the temple. There are four small warungs nearby, selling snacks, cold drinks and fresh young coconuts. Perfect to try after a climb.

There are many versions, how the beach came to its unique name, which is called by the locals Pantai "Pura Batu Pageh" (that's also the name of the temple). As with many beaches and surf spots along the coast of the peninsula, surfers are usually responsible for the nicknames. The most likely inspiration for the name, 'Green Bowl Beach', is the color and curvature of the cliff, which runs above the beach and perhaps also the emerald-green seaweed in clear waters.

The dense descent of over 300 steps and the green cliffs is home to hordes of gray long-tailed macaws, which are less nice than their Uluwatu counterparts. They stay remotely, provided you do not give them food, which is not advisable. The steep descent can be physically demanding for some, but what you see below is worth it. There are no beach guards here, so swim, snorkel and surf carefully.

From a Travel Blog:

"I had seen many pictures of this beach before we went. But never did I think it'd be so beautiful. Pictures are amazing but they will never do this beach justice!
Beware - it takes abit of stamina to get to this beach. Going down isn't so bad. Getting back up is the test! Be sure to take some water with you, although you will find drinks being sold at the beach by locals.
When you get to the vicinity of this place, you have 2-3 shops selling ice creams, drinks and snacks. You also get to see some cute cheeky monkeys. A temple is also there.
Once you get down to the beach, its all just so breathtaking. Words cannot justify its beauty. We spent around 3 hours there. Although I could have stayed there all day just looking at the beautiful clear blue water and views. There are also some caves at this beach.
If you're in Bali, you NEED to visit this beach!
