Commuting between Lombok and the Gili’s can be easy or difficult depending on a few important steps that most tourists don’t know.. First you need to choose between a slow public ferry, a public speed boat or a private speed boat.Public Ferry
Each ferry travels between Bangsal Harbour and the relevant harbour of each island. They leave every hour and costs IDR15,000. The ride will take approximately 45mins from Gili Trawangan – Bangsal Harbour (Lombok) You can purchase tickets at the ticket office located at each harbourPublic Speedboat
Public Speed boats travel between each island and Bangsal Harbour (Lombok) every hour but will not leave until the boat has at least 4-6ppl onboard. This will cost about IDR80,000 per person. Find the public boats at any of the island jetty’s.Private Speedboat
A private boat is the most expensive but will usually pick you up outside your resort (depending on location) and leave as soon as you are ready. A private speed boat will cost around IDR400,000 (6pax) If you need help organising a private speed boat please ask at your resort otherwise our booking team will be glad to help.
