#4 of 10 in Things to do in Ungasan
Surf the waves of Green Bowl Beach, a secluded tropical paradise characterized by algae-covered green rocks, visible at low tide. You'll have to descend more than 300 stone steps to reach this isolated spot, but once there you'll be rewarded with plenty of peace and quiet. Those not up for surfing can lounge on the sand, snorkel, and enjoy the view of the steep cliffs surrounding the ocean. Explore the white sand coast lined with caves, where you can spot bats in their daily slumber.

    EH this one morning with some friends. It is certainly beautiful o a little exciting. But even very scratchy o really pretty boring. The walk down is lovely o up to become sweat, but well down there is so much to do. More than shooting each other in different poses, all of which seem to do. ...

    We need to climb down a lot of steps to reach this wonderful secluded beach. The beach bed is rocky and the currents are not so high. A cave portion is available for resting and a lot of westerners pr...  more »

    Beach not so readily available, comes down to the stone steps. The descent is ok, but the entrance is already a small challenge in this heat for people with poor health. Despite this, it is worth it. Very cute, quiet beach. We were there at low tide, there were few tourists, peace and silence.

    Go during low tide. Water is muddy, rocky rather. Long walk down the stairs, get ready for some work out. But chilling inside the cave is fun, totally worth it for those instagram shots. Do not follow Google maps blindly, we got to a very rocky road coming from Nusa Dua, make sure you take a smoother route. Most locals don't know about this beach.

    You have to take a medium tracking to step down if you wanna reach the beach. Some surfers are surfing at this place. Nice place to spend your day with friends. Even you have to step up maybe more than 100 stairs.

    Breathtakingly beautiful. Must visit. However, there are many steps down!

    Make sure it is low tide when you come here, waves can get really high and it will be too hard to walk to the dome but thats when surfers come over to ride them waves. Prepare to walk about 350 steps down the stairs without railings but when you get there it is really worth it and you'll be dying to immediately swim the water. There are locals that offer massage when you go back up anyways. It can get crowded but when you get lucky you can probably have the beach to yourself.

Where to stay in Ungasan

Ungasan has a number of luxury villas and resorts, but not much by way of affordable accommodations for the shoestring traveler. Staying in Ungasan is gaining in popularity due to the relatively untouched white sandy beaches, panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, and generally laid-back atmosphere. Located close to golf courses, the town's best beaches, and the airport, the self-contained villas here represent a degree of opulence, yet may also be the most independent jumping-off points for exploring the island and town.
