Visit a Hidden Beach

Green Bowl Beach

Lovers of quiet, exotic shores need look no further than Green Bowl, a hidden gem on the southern coast of Bali. Whilst the descent down the cliff face requires a few hundred stairs, it is well worth it to find this relatively well-kept secret and the panoramic views on the way are sure to keep you going!

The origin of the name Green Bowl remains a mystery, with some suggesting it is inspired by the view of the green corals exposed at low tide. What can be certain is that the golden sands and turquoise waters are sure to appease any happy couples - perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the town.

A word of advice - be sure to have your taxi driver wait for you, as the beach is a 45-minute drive from Seminyak! Bluebird Taxis are a reliable choice.

Location: Green Bowl Beach, Ungasan 80361, Indonesia
