More information about Bali public transportation system:

– Trans Sarbagita Bus Stop/Shelter/Halte.
– Batubulan Micro/Mini Bus Station.
– Ubung Micro/Mini Bus Station.

*) It’s really not efficient trip using public transport in Bali. Waste your time, energy and money. There is no fixed price in Bali transportation system, except Trans Sarbagita bus. If the passenger full loaded you will get the price listed above, but if quiet (little) passenger you will pay more expensive. Seems they applied operational cost basis since the public transport not so popular today (quiet).

**) I suggest you to rent scooter and drive to here. They have wide parking area. Even enough space for car parking. The scooter parking fee is IDR 5K per day.

1. Windproof jacket.

Bringing wind visor jacket might be a wise choice. It will be a windy trip because the boat quiet fast. Other option you can use a scarf.

Sometime it will be sunny day on the boat. Also water splash sometime come to passenger position. It depend on the wind direction actually. In this case i recommend you to bring your glasses. A Sunglasses even better.

3. Seat Position.

If you can not tolerate to be shaken, better you choose seat position in the back side. Front side more stronger than back side. This straits facing Indonesia ocean. So, the waves sometime higher and strong. Mid day and late afternoon trip usually more shaken up than morning.

    Hi,
    Seems the Bemo is not reliable transport in Ubud.
    It’s hard to find it here.
    Do you know a shuttle bus company goes to Kusamba port from Ubud?
    Thanks

    1. kunzbali Post author

      Hi,

      Yes, it’s true.
      Bemo or Mitsubishi or Isuzu or brown transport really not reliable.
      Last time i want to go to Batubulan bus station,
      but they just drop me off at Sukawati market.

      I think you can use Perama shuttle bus.
      They have a route to Padang Bai.
      I think you can ask them to stop at Kusamba harbour.
      It just one way to Padang Bai harbour.
      The price also so affordable.
      I recommend you to use them.
      You can book it in their website.

    This is my favorite fast boat port.
    The boat price cheaper than Sanur and Serangan port.
    Also it’s a place for local people transfer to Nusa Penida island.
    I mean it’s good since i want to feel like a local.
    This harbor also favorite port for Hindus pilgrims who want to pray in Penida temple.
    You can recognize them wearing white dress and white Balinese hat.
    It was nice to see the local people here and had the experience.
    Thanks for the great blog!

    1. kunzbali Post author

      It’s good if you found the suitable port for you.
      Meet and feel the local life is another bonus of traveling.
      You should try the local food at Tribuan Kusamba harbour.
      The available local food there are:
      Tipat cantok, sate lilit, sate tusuk, leped, rujak, etc.
      But, most of the food are spicy.
      You can ask to them without chili sauce.
      Also you can visit traditional salt making place.
      It just in walking distance from Kusamba port.
