Is there a public ferry from Bali to Lombok? Since I read that Lombok is worth as an alternative to Bali for a peaceful getaway, I am thinking to head there for few days during my trip to Bali.
Yes there is available public ferry that embark from Padang Bai Harbour, Bali to Lembar Harbour in Lombok. This harbour is about 1 hour south of Sengigi, Lombok. The ferries depart every hour and the journey takes 4-5 hours at the cost of 36,000Rp. You may buy the tickets at the harbour itself. Alternatively, you can try the fast boat from Bali to Lombok which takes only about 1 hour, one of the operating company for fast boat is www.marinasrikandi.com.
