Whether it’s a full-day tour or a drop-off at the airport, at your stay with Alfred in Bali you can enjoy safe and comfortable transportation, ensuring an enjoyable journey at every turn. Plan ahead by booking your rides in advance, tailored to your schedule and preferences. 

Island-Hopping to Nusa Lembongan
Escape the mainland hustle with a day-trip to the beautiful island of Nusa Lembongan. Hop on a boat from Sanur, a coastal town on Bali’s southeastern edge. Fast boat services such as D’Camel Fast Ferry provides a budget-friendly and easy journey across the Bali Sea, delivering you to Nusa Lembongan’s serene shores. You can also opt for a semi-private fast boat trip with Kai Koa. Alternatively, book a full day trip with snorkeling from Bali to Nusa Lembongan.  Embrace the laid-back atmosphere, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, and discover the island’s hidden caves and stunning beaches.

Boat Trips to the Gili Islands
Another island-hopping gem lies in the turquoise waters between Bali and Lombok—the Gili Islands. Opt for a boat trip from Bali to Gili for a picturesque voyage. Dive into vibrant coral gardens while snorkeling, cycle around the car-free Gili Trawangan, or enjoy the tranquility of Gili Meno.

Domestic Air Travel to Lombok
For those craving a change of scenery, Bali’s strategic location allows for quick escapes to neighboring islands. Catch a domestic flight to Lombok for a taste of unspoiled landscapes and cultural richness. Take in the views at Lombok’s towering Mount Rinjani, explore traditional Sasak villages, and unwind on the serene beaches of the Gili Islands.

Seamless Travel Tips

Plan Ahead for Domestic Flights
When traveling beyond Bali, plan domestic flights in advance. Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar serves as the main gateway. Opt for morning flights to Lombok or other Indonesian destinations to avoid potential delays due to afternoon weather conditions.

Embrace the GoJek and Grab Culture
Getting around in Bali and its lively streets is made easier with ride-hailing apps like GoJek and Grab. Not only are they budget-friendly, but they also provide a level of comfort and safety. Remember to use a helmet when opting for a scooter ride.

Check Weather Conditions
Bali’s tropical climate can bring unexpected weather changes. Stay informed about weather conditions, especially if you plan to travel by boat. While fast boats are efficient, consider motion sickness if you’re prone to it. Be prepared with seasickness remedies for a more comfortable journey.
