– Batubulan Micro/Mini Bus Station.
– Ubung Micro/Mini Bus Station.

*) It’s really not efficient trip using public transport in Bali. Waste your time, energy and money. There is no fixed price in Bali transportation system, except Trans Sarbagita. If the passenger full loaded you will get the price above, but if quiet (little) passenger you will pay more expensive. Seems they applied operational cost basis since the public transport not so popular today (quiet).

**) For backpacker i recommend you to rent a scooter to reach this place and use google map as your navigator.

***) Other option you can take a Perama shuttle bus. Their price is reasonable, but you have to check their schedule first on their website for booking: Perama Shuttle Bus.

      Hello Pierrick,

      What you need to understand is there is no Ferry to Nusa Lembongan.
      The Ferry at Padang Bai harbor departing to Lombok & Nusa Penida only.
      If you want to use Ferry,
      then you can take a Ferry to Nusa Penida.
      From Nusa Penida you can go to Toyapakeh harbor by a boat or scooter.
      Then you can take a small boat to Nusa Lembongan.
      For the last boat you’ll just pay IDR 35K only.

      I already provide the time table of Ferry.
      But, i haven’t for the fast boat.
      My last visit i found so many fast boat operator on Padang Bai fast boat port.
      I confused which one is the cheap one since so many people offering the transport services.

      Today i’m in Yogyakarta, Java.
      I will let you know when i back to Bali.

      Regards
      Roni Kuncoro
