Most of our guests travel from Bali by fast boat. Most fast boats depart from Padang Bai (East Bali), Serangan (South Bali) or Amed (North East Bali). Which port you choose depends on your preference (longer trip by boat or car) and, of course, where you are staying at Bali. Most boat operators have a free hotel transfer to / from Bali's main tourist areas in the ticket price included. Tickets can be purchased online at the official website of the boat operator or at an online travel agent. It is also no problem to buy tickets during your stay in Bali.
Serangan is a name of a port which is located about 20 minutes away from some of the famous tourist destinations located in the southern part of Bali island, including Kuta, Legian, Seminyak, Jimbaran and Nusa Dua.
Padang Bai is not only a fishing village located in the east side of Bali. It is also the main port to cross to Lombok or Gili Islands. The fast boats heading directly to the Gili Islands, while the slow ferry arrives in Lembar port in the south west side of Lombok.
Amed is located in north east side of Bali. From there you have the shortest crossing to the Gili Islands. Since this port is less busy due to its location, the boats are much smaller and usually do not offer the same comfort as the large boats departing Padang Bai.
