GETTING TO THE GILI ISLANDS
How to get here?
Lombok International Airport is located less than two hours drive from the Gili islands. The journey is a car ride for approximately one and half hours, then a short boat ride across to the island. Taxi’s are easily available at Lombok airport, whilst public boat services from Bangsal harbor to the island are available until around 5pm daily. Uber Scuba Gili can also pre-organize a private car airport pick-up and speedboat transfer directly to Gili Trawangan for you. This is especially useful for late arrivals to Lombok airport when public boats would not be available.
There are many fastboat companies running daily transfers between Bali and Gili. The majority will collect you at your hotel in Bali and include the car transfer in the boat ticket price. They depart Bali between 8am and 2pm daily and the crossing is approximately two hours long. We are happy here at Uber Scuba Gili to help book the fastboat ticket for you. Tickets range in price from around 300,000 IDR-750,000 IDR depending on company you choose and the level of service they provide.
There are daily domestic flights between Bali and Lombok. If you arrive to Bali too late to catch an onward fastboat in order to make it to Gili in one day, it may be possible to catch a domestic flight instead. We can organize these flights for you and then arrange a direct pick up and transfer for you from Lombok international Airport to Gili Trawangan.
