Main habours to cross to Gili Air


The main harbour to Gili Air is Bangsal. That is the harbour where the public transport depart.

Teluk Nare

This is the main harbour for private speed boat charters.

Sengiggi Beach

Some speed boat operators from Bali offer to travel on the section from Senggigi to Gili Air. The ticket prices are around 200,000 IDR / person.

Ombak Ble

This is the main harbour to transport building material. However, in bad weather conditions, the public boat will cross to this harbour instead of Bangsal as this is the shortest boat connection. There is no public road to this harbour!

Harbour Bangsal

Bangsal Harbour is the main harbour to cross to Gili Islands. It is located in the west north side of Lombok. You have the option to join a public speed or slow boat or charter a private boat. Unfortunately, Bangsal does not have the best reputation. There are some dodgy characters who try to sell overpriced tickets, services or goods. Our tip, ignore these people and buy your tickets at the official ticket counter. This is for Gili Air on the right near the beach. The speed boat ticket counter is centrally located near the pier. Outside normal business hours, we would avoid this harbour and prefer to charter a speed boat from Teluk Nara.
