Fast Boat to Nusa PenidaPosted by Admin Acala at 04 Sep, 2018
If you want to go to Nusa Penida Island from Bali, the easiest and cheapest way, if you go from the capital, Denpasar is by getting to the Sanur beach and using some traditional public boat called 'jukung'. Jukung will cost you maximum around IDR. 40.000 and it will take around 90 minutes to reach Nusa Penida. There's another option you can take if you go from Sanur. You can also take some speed boat which is a lot more expensive than jukung (could be IDR 50.000 more expensive) but also a lot more faster (45 minutes). If you want to travel with your own car/ motorbike to Nusa Penida (please noticed its only for Nusa Penida, not Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan) you can go to Padang bay (on the east part of Bali, an hour drive from Denpasar) to take a ferry boat (Kapal Ro-Ro and Kapal Re-Re). This boat will take you crossing the Badung Strait, and the trip will take around one hour to get to the Toya Pakeh Harbor in Nusa Penida Island. Beside from Padang Bay and Sanur, you can also take some jukung from Kusamba (cost you around IDR 25.000).
Fast Boat to Nusa Penida is sea transportation that is used everyday by the people who want traveling from Bali to Nusa Penida. as we know that Nusa Penida is really beautiful island should be visited. Nusa Penida has a lot of diving/snorkeling spots, a lot of Hindu Temple, and also the best view of the hill. Nusa Penida is really easy to accessed from Bali by using fast boat that takes only 45 minutes directly from Sanur to Sampalan Nusa Penida.
In Sanur boats depart from the end of Jalan Hang Tuah to various destinations in Nusa Penida, depending on the company. Note that boats depart directly from the beach in Sanur and don’t use a pier so you will need to wade, generally up to about knee-depth, but sometimes more, up to the back of the boat and climb the steps into the boat. If you are mobility-impaired or not comfortable getting onto a boat in this manner, someone will need to carry you. In rough seas injuries do happen, so take care.
