How to Get to Nusa Lembongan from Sanur

Are you ready to embark on an unforgettable adventure from Sanur to Nusa Lembongan? With its stunning beaches and crystal-clear waters, Nusa Lembongan is a paradise waiting to be explored. Here’s everything you need to know to ensure a smooth boarding process and an enjoyable journey.

Distance and Duration

The distance between Bali and Nusa Lembongan is approximately 15 kilometres, with a quick 30 to 40-minutes boat ride. Rest assured, the boats are spacious, safe, and equipped with modern safety gear, ensuring your peace of mind throughout the journey.

Sanur Port

The Port is newly opened in 2022 and located on Jalan Matahari Terbit. Every day, more than 20 vessels take travellers to various destinations including Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan, Nusa Penida and Gili islands.

Boarding Steps

Get your boarding pass

Head to the fast boat office to collect your boarding pass and check in your luggage. At the office, you will receive a small paper boarding pass with QR code along with either a boat lanyard tag or a wristband, depending on the boat provider. Additionally, you’ll be given a note for your return journey, which is essential to keep safe as you’ll need to present it to the boat office in Nusa Lembongan on your departure date.

Walk to the port

Take a short walk to the port where your boat awaits. The entrance gate is located on the left side of the port. Along the way, you’ll pass several stalls where you can purchase water and snacks for your boat ride before entering the port.

Security Check and wait in the waiting room

Once you enter the port, you’ll encounter a barrier gate in the terminal. Here, the staff will scan the QR code on your boarding pass. Only those with a boarding pass QR code are permitted to enter the gate and proceed to the waiting room upstairs.

Board your boat

An announcer will call your boat’s name. Prepare your boarding pass once again and follow the crew for instructions.


  • Unless you book Rocky Fast Cruise with jetty to jetty service, you will land on water. Wear appropriate clothes (shorts and flip flops) and be mindful when carrying your suitcase as it can be hard to drag on sand. You can opt to store your luggage at one of the luggage drop services near the port for extra convenience.
  • Traffic to reach Sanur Port can be unpredictable and we strongly suggest to spare extra transport time. For the most practical way to reach the port, book a transfer that includes pickup and drop off by the boat company.
  • Go to the toilet before boarding as only some fast boats have a toilet onboard. But with the boat going at 50 km/h, it will not be the easiest toilet experience.
  • Sit at the back of the boat to reduce the up and down bouncing motion experienced during the ride.
  • The smoothest rides are often in the morning before the wind picks up. Less chop on the water.
  • No F&B service on the boat, so you can bring your own water and snacks.
  • Separate your travel bag and take a small backpack for your water and snacks as your luggage will be put in the main storage area of the boat.
