Bali to Gili Meno
How to travel from Bali to Gili Meno?
Gili Meno is the most quiet and thus the least serviced island in the Gilis. Only Eka Jaya offers tickets from Bali to Gili Meno.
- The easiest route from Bali departs from Padang Bai to Gili Meno. Padang Bai Harbour is located on the East of Bali and from there it will take approx. 2 hrs to get to Gili Meno by fast boat. If you're staying around Seminyak, Kuta, Sanur, Jimbaran, Denpasar or Ubud this is the perfect route for you as pick-up is included (from set pick-up points) from these areas. Note: Eka Jaya's boat is too big to get to the shore near Gili Meno, so there is an extra 35,000 IDR ($3) p.p. charge levied by the locals to transfer between shore and the Eka Jaya mooring, while they await the completion of a new jetty expected later this year.
Another great option to get from Bali to Gili Meno is with Eka Jaya's island hopper. You'll depart from Serangan in South Bali and sail via Nusa Lembongan (and/or Nusa Penida) to Padang Bai and the Gili Islands. The great thing about the island hopper ticket is that you can hop-off for a stay (minimum 1 night) on either Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan or Nusa Penida on the way to Gili Meno. Once you've booked, simply let us know which date you'd like to hop back on and you can continue your route to Gili Meno.
Is Eka Jaya not going to Gili Meno on the dates/times you'd like or are you staying in North Bali (Amed/Tulamben)? Then simply take a fast boat from Bali to Gili Trawangan (or Gili Air) and book a private transfer to Gili Meno via our sister website Gili-islandtransfers.com at the exact time you'd like.
Another option from Padang Bai Harbour is the public slow ferry. The slow ferry travels from Padang Bai to Lembar (South of Lombok) and takes approx. 6 hours. This is a very cheap but an uncomfortable and long trip, and when you arrive in Lembar it is a further 2hrs to get to Gili Meno.
- The Gili Islands are very close to Lombok which means you can also fly to Lombok from Bali and take a private land + sea transfer from Lombok Airport to Gili Meno (book this via our sister website Gili-islandtransfers.com). This trip takes aprox. 25 minutes by plane from Bali, 1,5 hrs by car from Lombok Airport and 15 min by boat to Gili Meno.
