In short, the only option to get from Bali to Nusa Lembongan is to take the boat. There are a few different companies operating boats on this route that you can choose from.

The boat ride takes 30 minutes each way. There are times when it may take longer or be delayed, normally due to adverse weather conditions.

On Bali, the boat leaves from Sanur and arrives to Jungubatu Beach in Lembongan.

If you need transport in Sanur or Lembognan, you can organise this with the boat provider for an extra fee.

You can take luggage on the boat from Sanur to Nusa Lembongan. If you have a small bag, you can carry this on yourself. If you have larger luggage, the staff will carry this for you and load it onto the top of the boat. The boat and the luggage are under cover so you don’t need to worry about your things getting wet.
