Padangbai Travel Guide

Situated on the beautiful island of Bali, Padangbai is a picturesque traditional fishing village, surrounded by natural beauty.

One of the advantages of traveling to Padangbai is that ferries regularly call in at the village’s large port, making it easy to get to some of the surrounding beauty spots such as the many sun-kissed beaches on the island of Lombok. Take the time to explore Padangbai and soak up the tranquil atmosphere before heading off to explore Lombok or Bali.
