Getting to Nusa Lembongan

Getting to Nusa Lembongan


Getting to Nusa Lembongan – we make it easy and stressfree

The captain announces that the plane will be landing soon at Denpasar Airport; you’ve got your headphones on playing your favourite song, your sunnies sit atop your head, and the excitement reaches an all-time high as the wheels hit the tarmac. Welcome to the Island of the Gods!

Let us give you a step-by-step about arriving in Bali and, more importantly, how to get to Nusa Lembongan.

P.s. don’t miss 15% off for boat transfers when you book your accommodation with us!


Upon reaching the arrival hall at Denpasar airport, proceed directly to the Visa On Arrival (VOA) counter and purchase a 30-day visa on arrival. The VOA will cost USD$35 (approx AUD$50) and is valid for 30 days, extendable for an extra 30 days.


Customs cleared! One step closer to throwing your towel down and soaking up the sun.

Make your way to the airport terminal exit, where you will see people lined up with signs, a Rocky Representative will be waiting and holding a placard with your name on it. Once you have found each other and are good to go, they will help you with your luggage and escort you to the vehicle.


The journey from the airport to the Sanur port is straightforward. It will take approximately 45 minutes to reach the ferry terminal, depending on traffic conditions and the time of day. The driver will make a quick stop at the Rocky office to collect tickets and then drop you directly in front of the new terminal, where you will wait for your boat to Nusa Lembongan.

No matter how many bags you bring, they are all included in the ticket price, and yes, surfboards are included, too!


If you are already in Bali, the process is similar.  Rocky Fast Cruises will arrange to collect you directly from your hotel and drop you off at the ferry terminal. A representative will make contact one day before your travel date to confirm the pick-up time and location. They offer pick-up services from all areas on mainland Bali and include pick-up in the price of the ticket for most locations. If you are staying in a more remote area, an additional fee will apply.


Rocky Fast Cruises has 4 boat transfers from Sanur to Nusa Lembongan per day. We will do our best to help you coordinate a transfer time with your flight arrival and estimated travel time between the airport and the ferry terminal. Most of the accommodations on the island have a check-in time of 2:00 pm, so an afternoon boat would be best.


The new terminal is a large, air-conditioned, and very comfortable space. Overhead screens display the arrival and departure times so that you can keep track of the Rocky Fast Cruises schedule. Free WiFi is available throughout the property, and you will find a variety of food and beverage stalls just outside the terminal entrance.


Boarding time, let’s go!

A boarding announcement will be made and direct you to the specific boarding location. Once you have reached the gate, an attendant will check and scan your ticket. The walk toward the boat is short, and the boarding process is effortless. Grab a seat towards the back of the boat if you can. The journey across the ocean will be less bumpy, closer to the stern.

Once the lines are loose, and the boat is set free, the final leg of your trip will begin.


The captain will dock the boat on the island’s eastern side at the Rocky Beach Club jetty. That’s right; Rocky Fast Cruises is a jetty-to-jetty transfer. Once you have arrived, a driver will drop you off at your new home away from home.

All land transportation on Nusa Lembongan is included in your ticket price.

Now, go on! Kick your feet up and enjoy being on island time!

Heading back to the mainland is just as easy as when you left. Check-out from your accommodation is usually at around 10 am,  Rocky provides two morning transfers back to Sanur.

A Rocky representative will be in touch 1 day before departure to confirm the pick-up location and time.


Time to leave paradise!

A driver from Rocky Fast Cruises will collect you from your hotel or villa and provide transport to the Rocky Beach Club. Once the boat is loaded, the engines will start, and you will have one last opportunity to capture a picture of the beautiful island behind you.

The journey back to Sanur is roughly 30 minutes, providing enough time to scroll through your camera roll and reminisce on your wonderful holiday.

Upon arrival in Sanur, the staff will take your luggage to a car that will drop you at the airport for your flight home or to your Bali accommodation ready for the next part of your holiday.

Once again, all land transportation is included in your original ticket price.
