Other destinations

Understand

This is the least populated and least visited region of Bali. It is dominated by the West Bali National Park much of which is completely uninhabited. Both the north and south coasts of this region offer quiet beaches but of a very different nature. Those in the north fringe calm seas which are excellent for diving and snorkelling. The southern beaches are wilder and include a number of renowned surfing spots. The town of Gilimanuk on the very westernmost tip of Bali is the departure point for ferries to Java.

Get in

By car

Two major roads lead into West Bali, one on the north coast and one on the south coast.

The northern route links Lovina and Singaraja in North Bali to Pemuteran. This is a relatively quiet road which offers some great scenery and attractions en-route and visitors are advised to take it slowly.

Much busier is the southern route as this carries the bulk of the commercial traffic to and from Java. This road links South Bali to Tabanan in Central Bali and then to the western region towns of Negara and Gilimanuk. A car journey from South Bali all the way to Gilimanuk will take upwards of 3 hours.

By bus

Scheduled shuttle buses run from many of Bali's main visitor centres to Gilimanuk and these are widely advertised in towns such as Kuta, Lovina, Sanur and Ubud. Check locally and book one day in advance.

Bemos servicing Negara, Gilimanuk and other parts of the south coast leave rom Ubung terminal in Denpasar and Pesiapan terminal in Tabanan.

By boat

Ferries run from Ketapang ferry terminal, Banyuwangi, East Java to Gilimanuk every 30 minutes, 24 hours a day. The journey itself takes about 45 minutes but loading and unloading may extend that tiem considerably. Since Bali has been the subject of terrorist interest from Java security has tightened enormously - be prepared for delays.
