          From Bali – Take the fast boat from any of the three ports Serangan, Padang Bai and Amed. Tickets cost around 45 USD one way to the                  island(s) and the journey takes from 60 – 100 minutes. You can book the tickets from any travel agent in Bali. You could also take the public                      ferry which is much cheaper but takes 5 hours to reach the islands.


4. Gili Air: The best beaches and a relaxed pace of life

Gili Air is one of three islands (the Gilis) that can be reached by speedboat from Padang Bai in Bali within two hours. Technically, they are not part of Bali but located on Lombok (another part of Indonesia) but because of their proximity, most people include them on their Balinese journey. And they do that for a reason. Gili Air was absolutely my favorite part of my Bali trip.

How to get to Nusa Penida from Sanur Harbor:

There are a lot of fast boats heading to Nusa Penida from Sanur harbor, leaving every hour or 30 minutes depending on the fast boat company. You can also go to Nusa Penida from Padang Bai Harbor, but if you’re planning to stay around Kuta, Sanur is the most convenient place to get there.
