GREEN BOWL BEACH, BALI
BEST FOR… Escaping, snorkelling WHY GO? It’s the 300-plus steps down the cliff-face (or, more accurately, back up again) that keep the masses from Green Bowl. Those who brave the staircase will find quiet golden sand, crystal waters, crabs and starfish, and caves full of bats.
WHAT TO DO: Surf (there are good waves here). Snorkel amid colourful coral and hundreds of tropical fishes.
WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Visit clifftop Uluwatu Temple, which hosts nightly kecak (music drama) and fire-dance performances. Eat a seafood supper on Muaya Beach.
GET THERE: Green Bowl is near Uluwatu, South Kuta.
