Bali itinerary July 2018

Wondering if this itinerary sounds as though we are doing too much or if it seems doable? Thank you in advance!

July 7-10 ubud

July 10-13 Nusa Lembongan

July 13-17 Gili Islands

July 17-21 south lombok

Also wondering -

1) How do we get from Ubud to Nusa L and how long does it take? Is there a service that is more reliable than others?

2) How do we get from Nusa L to the other Nusa islands and how long does it take? Is it worth it?

3) How do we get from Nusa L to Gili/Lombok and which should we do? How long will it take? Is it worth it to fly from Lombok's airport?

5) How do we get from South Lombok to Gili and how long does it take?

Thank you!!

Hi cslyons,

And where exactly in south Lombok (Kuta Lombok?) and where after "south Lombok.

3)&5) makes no sense and you contradict your initial itinerary.

3) Flying from Lombok Airport to where? Gilis?

Firstly look at a map.

UBUD - NL -.GILIS - "Kuta Lombok" easily done.


Fastboat e.g. Best company www.rockyfastcruise.com have numerous services daily from Sanur to NL and will include free pickup from a central point in Ubud (Coco Supermarket).

Other services include www.scootcruise.com and Marlin.

Scoot gone downhill a bit in recent years.


Limited fastboat services.

Best company www.bluewater-express.com have a direct service.

As does www.scootcruise.com

GILIS TO "South Lombok" or wherever on Lombok.

There are a couple of "slow boat to china" local ferries to Lombok mainland to Bangsal and senggigi.

Best thing is to get the local fastboat ferry service. Basically goes around the Gilis (T, Air and Meno) and Bangsal harbour hourly throughout the day. Costs IDR85k.

At Bangsal harbour lots of private drivers wait at the quayside parking touting for business. Last half a mile of road to harbour is private and outside drivers and Lombok bluebird taxis not allowed to the harbour. You can walk down the private road to the next car park and find more drivers and perhaps a Bluebird. Best thing is to get your "south Lombok" accommodation to send a driver for you to meet you at the private road car park. Expect to pay IDR500k from Bangsal to "Kuta Lombok"

LOMBOK TO ..........????????

Just trying to figure out the best way to go about traveling to the places we want to see. Have looked at a map like once or twice. Thanks

If you’re flying home from Denpasar, I’d suggest spending your last night back in Bali if you haven’t already factored that in. Far less risk of missing your flight home if connections from Lombok are delayed or cancelled.
