Bali to Lombok Slow Ferry and Fast Boat routes

Bali to Lombok fast boat

There are a number of ways to get from Bali to Lombok by boat. From south Bali Denpasar area, you can take a fast boat from Serangan to Teluk Nare or Serangan to Bangsal harbor in north Lombok (close to the Gili Islands). Gili Getaway and Blue Water Express offer this route, both sailing via Nusa Lembongan island near Bali. There is also an option from Sanur to Senggigi in West Lombok with Scoot Cruises, who also sail via Lembongan.
 
If you're looking for a more direct route to Lombok, we suggest a Padang Bai departure such as with Gili Gili. Do note that all services to North Lombok stop at the Gili islands first, however for the way back from Lombok to Padang Bai the route is often direct.
 
Alternatively, if you're simply looking for the cheapest possible way to get to Lombok, there is a public slow ferry departing hourly during the day from Padang Bai harbor, sailing to Lembar harbour in the south of Lombok. The Bali to Lombok ferry travel time can take up to 6 hours and the conditions on board are often uncomfortable and cramped. By far the best recommended way from Bali to Lombok is by booking a high quality fast boat service like Gili Getaway. If you want to look at the best budget boats from Bali to Lombok please take a look at our sister site Gilitickets.com.
 

How do I get a fast boat from Bali to Lombok? 

Simply use the search box or "book tickets" button (mobile) above to check availabilty and book. Depending on where in Bali you are staying there are a few options. For South Bali Departures, Serangan or Sanur is recommended, (Gili Getaway, Blue Water Express and Scoot Cruise) especially if you also want to stop over on Nusa Lembongan as the route takes you past there. For a more direct route, choose a Padang Bai to Lombok departure. Gili Gili departs from Padang Bai but also offers complementary pick up from popular South Bali areas.

If you are travelling to the beautiful South of Lombok, we reccommend Gili Getaway's fast boat service to Gili Gede, then a private local transfer from Gili Gede to South Lombok mainland through our sister site Gili-islandtransfers.com. This is the fastest and best sea route from Bali to South Lombok.
