How To Reach Nusa Pendia?

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 to Nusa Penida. You can also take some speedboat which is a lot more expensive than Jukung (could be IDR 50.000 more expensive) but also a lot faster (50 minutes).

If you want to travel by your own car/ motorbike to Nusa Penida (please noticed its only for Nusa Penida, not Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan) you can go 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 Rp. 25.000).
