How to get to the Nusa Penida island
There are some ways how to get to the island Nusa Penida from the Bali
It’s the most simple and comfortable way to get to the island.
When you arrive to port Sanur the first thing you need to do is to find a berth Sanur Beach which is the place of departure for boats to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida.
You just pass by the intermediary office situated on the left on the corner of the street and go straight forward.
Of course you can buy tickets in this office but they will be more expensive.
Then turn to the left and just go along the beach. You will see different ticket spots.
During weekends and holidays there are a lot of tourists so all the tickets can be sold. That’s why it’s better for you to book tickets in advance or early arrive to the port.
