Getting to Gili Meno
There are a number of ways to get to Gili Meno.
Fast Boat From Bali : There are many boat operators that go between Bali and Gili Trawangan. We recommend using Blue Water Express - they may be more expensive but in out experience they are reliable, leave on schedule, do not overbook and the longest running operators between Bali and Gili. They will pick you up from your hotel in Bali and take you to the boat. Their website is www.bwsbali.com or www.bluewater-express.com or call +62+81-338418988
You can book directly with them. To make the booking you will need following information:- Full Names of passenger, Nationality, Age, Address and Phone number of pick up and drop off location in Bali.
All boats drop off in Gili T or Gili Air, once there - you can take the InterIsland Fastboat service that goes between all the 3 islands and Bangsal and leaves every hour - you buy the ticket at the ticket office on the beach. Only buy ticket in at the official ticket office.
If you Flying and are coming from Lombok Airport: you can book flights on www.traveloka.co.id
In order to arrive timeously on the island, we suggest you arrive on a flight prior to 1.30pm to allow you to get to Bangsal Harbour before the last boat at 5pm. Take an airport taxi directly to Bangsal - you buy the ticket at the ticket office inside the airport. It take about 2 - 2.5 hours from airport to Bangsal. Taxi cost around IDR350 000 - IDr400 000 from Airport to Bangsal. From Bangsal take the boat - InterIsland fast boat or local island shuttle. The last boat leaves at 5pm from Bangsal Harbour to Gili Meno. Only buy ticket at the Official ticket office do not believe what you get told outside the ticket office it is often misinformation.
We do not recommend arriving in the night as it is difficult for the boat to get to the island and also there are not always a horse cart or lights so you will have to find your way in the dark and more than likely have to carry your bags. If you cannot make it before last boat we suggest you sleep a night in Lombok and come over the next day.
In Lombok we recommend Qunci Villas in Mangsit as a wonderful place to stay. www.quncivillas.com
