FLIGHTS From Bali we recommend taking a morning flight to Lombok International (LOP) or Sumbawa Besar Airport (SWQ)
Once in Lombok we can have a pre-arranged driver pick you up from the airport
and drop you at Kayangan, the ferry port. It takes around 2 hours.
The fast ferry is not available to tourists at the current time.
A fleet of slow ferries runs from Kayangan (Lombok) to Poto Tano (West Sumbawa).
The slow ferries allow pedestrians, bikes and vehicles and leave about every hour.
Poto Tano is 1 hour and 40 minutes drive from Maluk (Merdeka House).
You can choose the option to fly into Sumbawa Besar.
From there it is a 3 hour drive to Maluk by private car.
To book transfers please contact Merdeka House or contact the driver direct
