Checking flights...

Boat

Ferries run almost hourly, 24 hours a day, between Labuhan Lombok and Poto Tano on Sumbawa (passengers 17,000Rp, cars 431,000Rp, motorcycles 49,500Rp, 1½ hours). Through buses to points east from Bali and Lombok include the ferry fare.

Small fishing boats can take you to Gili Kondo for the day for about 750,000Rp, though many organise tours from Tetebatu or Senaru.

Bus & Bemo

Regular buses and bemos buzz between Mandalika Terminal in Mataram and Labuhan Lombok; the journey takes 2½ hours (35,000Rp). Some buses will only drop you off at the port entrance road, from where you can catch another bemo to the ferry terminal (5000Rp, 10 minutes). Don’t walk – it’s too far.
