Bali to Gili fast boat

From South Bali

South Bali (Denpasar region) includes popular areas such as Kuta, Seminyak, Sanur, Jimbaran, Uluwatu and Canggu. The main southern departure harbour for fast boat services to the Gili islands and Lombok is Serangan harbour. If you are staying in south Bali, you can also consider using Padang Bai departures as explained below. Nearby Sanur harbour mainly serves Bali to Lembongan and Nusa Penida.

Best services from Serangan to Gili:

  • Gili Getaway
  • Blue Water Express
  • Eka Jaya

Note: All 3 companies also operate to north Lombok (Bangsal harbour) and to Nusa Penida. Gili Getaway additionally operates to Gili Gede (south Lombok). Eka Jaya additionally operates to Senggigi. 

Padang Bai to Gili

Padang Bai harbour is the busiest departure port for fast boat services from Bali to the Gili islands and Lombok. This is most suited to people coming from Ubud to Gili and eastern Bali areas of Candidasa and Padang Bai itself.

The Jetty at Padang Bai can get very hectic, so booking with one of the more reputable services is advised due to the extra care they take with well organised, safe and punctual boarding and departure procedures.

Best services from Padang Bai to Gili and Lombok:

  • Blue Water Express
  • Gili Gili Fast boat
  • Eka Jaya

Amed to Gili

NOTE: Amed port is closed at the moment for undergoing construction

If you are staying in northern areas of Bali and are looking for the best way to get to the Gili islands, the rural town of Amed in northeast Bali is recommended. Not only suitable for those staying in Amed and Tulamben areas, but also for areas further west such as Lovina.

The best rated fast boat from Amed to Gili is Freebird Express.

Please do note - Amed is not suitable if you are staying in south Bali or coming from/going to Denpasar airport.
The distance by road from Bali airport to Amed can take up to 4 hours depending on traffic, and typically costs in excess of 600,000IDR.

Best Gili Island

Each island offers something slightly different, so whether you want to relax on a beach , snorkel in crystal clear water, dive with turtles and manta rays, or just enjoy a cocktail while watching the sun go down over the Bali volcano, there is something for everyone. Check out our Gili Islands Travel tips for more on which Gili island is the best for you.

  1. Gili Trawangan ("Gili T") is the best island for people who are looking for loads to do, a vibrant nightlife, countless dive shops and plenty of great places to eat. It is the most popular and developed of the 3 islands.
  2. Gili Air is a more chilled island where you can find a great balance of activities, restaurants, some bars, great diving and peace and quiet.
  3. Gili Meno is the least developed and therefore best island for people who want to escape other tourists and would like no nightlife or busy main strip around. The Honeymooners choice.

We have first-hand experience with our fast boat partners and over the past few years have seen a proven service record. The importance of this cannot be understated as there are many rogue operators between Bali, Lembongan, Lombok & The Gili Islands. Safety and service are compromised far too often with some boats being dangerously overloaded, and missing even the most basic safety equipment. Our fast boat partners all maintain a high level of safety and service and have safety equipment on board that includes, life jackets for adults and children, life rafts, EPIRB, life ring, lights, GPS and VHF ship-to-shore radio.
