PUBLIC FERRY - BALI TO LOMBOK

Public ferries' provide services for both passengers and vehicles.

The trip normally takes four hours (but it can be considerably longer in poor weather). This service runs 24 hours a day. It should be understood that this ferry has a poor safety record.

 

Public Ferry at Lembar Harbour, Indonesia

Lembar Harbour, Lombok Indonesia

Disembark from Padang Bai or arriving at Lembar Harbour do not let a local porter take your bags/luggage unless you have negotiated absolutely what you will pay before he puts his hands on your bags.

 

Best to avoid the service completely if possible as it can be fraught with complications over prices.

 

While they are cheap, it can cost quite a bit extra to get to Padangbai so its worth comparing all alternatives.

 

Lembar in the south west of the island is Lombok's main port and handles small freighters, fishing boats and the combination vehicle and passenger ferries heading westward to Bali.

 

Padang Bai (also Padangbai and Padang Bay) is a small port town in East Bali, the port for ferry terminal from/to Lombok. Situated in Northeast of Gianyar 29 km, from Kuta 62 km, and from Denpasar 56 km. Padang Bai can be reached from Sanur in more and less 1 hour.

 

Getting from Lembar Harbour
If you're arriving in Lembar and need transport, you'll find the Lembar bemo drivers hard bargainers.

Crossing By Public ferry (Bali-Lombok)Tips: If you are leaving from Lombok, chances are high that someone will approach you and offer the ticket to Bali for same or cheaper than going the current rate of Rp 36,000 (March 2011). They'll also try to move you past official ticket offices (at the entrance gates of the harbour). It may be cheaper, however, you won't get an official ticket, or get only second part of it (the first one normally goes to the security on the pier). So, you may end up without a valid ticket and, if some security check happens, may have to pay again and suffer a lot of confusion. Just buy the ticket at the official ticket booth.

 

Stay safe

The ferries used on the run between Lombok and Bali do not conform to many Internationally recognized safety and operational standards.

  • It is prudent to keep alert and be aware of your position and situation whilst on board and make yourself aware of the positioning of life preserving equipment.

  • If inside the main cabin or below decks try to ensure you orient yourself to the layout of the ships decks and emergency exits especially if travelling at night.

  • You should maintain a clear head and use caution at all times when embarking and disembarking as the decks and ramps can be slippery and the passengers can at times behave in a chaotic manner especially when disembarking.

  • Be aware that heavy vehicles as well as cars and motorbikes are moving onto and off the ships at the dock and will using the same loading ramp as the passengers.

  • Be careful to keep track of your bags and watch out for pick pockets if in a crowd waiting to board or disembark.
