Bangsal ferry port in Lombok connects you with Amed in Bali with a choice of up to 7 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Bangsal to Amed crossing is from 45 minutes and the crossing is operated by FreeBird Express.
On the north-western tip of Lombok, one of the islands in the West Nusa Tenggara province of Indonesia, is the tiny port of Bangsal. This busy ferry terminal, formed of just a single pier that juts into the Bali Sea, is found close to the imposing Mount Rinjani volcano that dominates the island's northern landscape.
A single rural road leads to and from the port, heading to the nearest village of Pamenang. It is a route that cuts through lush tropical vegetation and slowly rises towards the vista of inland hills. Facilities at the port are limited to a few small shops and a car-park, though a market selling food and drink is nearby.
Those travelling to the port from other areas in Lombok can join the Ji. H. Mansur road that heads north from the island’s capital city of Mataram. It’s an hour-long route that twists through the dense countryside and arrives almost directly at the harbour-side.
Only one passenger route currently operates from the port. A FreeBird Express line sails the short distance eastwards to the port of Amed in Bali a few times throughout the week.
