GILIMANUK

"From the train station it was a few minutes walk to the port where the ferry left for Gilimanuk. After about 15 minutes the Ferry left and the crossing would take about 40 minutes. From Gilimanuk we really wanted to travel to Lovina, but there arrived, it appeared that the buses to Lovina only until 17.00."

          Gilimanuk is "Bali's Western Gateway". It's the cheapest way to get to Java or Bali. There are ferries that sail frequently to transfer humans and vehicles. The ferry must cross the strait between Java and Bali. That is 3 kilometers wide and takes here about 1 hour. Despite the short distance, the water is here with his dangerous flows. They talk about a bridge, but that's not built yet.
Often you have to wait your turn in the harbour until you can moor. There is also a time difference between Bali and Java.
The beauty of the beaches Gilimanuk are seldom mentioned. It has a wide variety of coral beaches, white and black sand beaches and mangrove forest. The beauty of the underwater world of coral awaits anyone who is willing to dive and snorkel.
There are two small islands in the bay, which is little more than sand banks - Pulau Kalong (Bat Island) and Pulau Burung (Bird Island). For tourists who want to know more about the history of Bali, can visit the Museum of Pre-Hindu Archaeology in Gilimanuk.

 

There are two small islands in the bay, which are barely more than sandbanks - Pulau Kalong (Bats Island) and Pulau Burung (Bird Island). For tourists who want to know more about the history of Bali, Gilimanuk can visit the Museum Situs Purbakala. It is located 500 meters from the ferry. You can admire bones and objects that have been excavated in the vicinity of Cekik 3000 to 4000 years ago. Maybe you can visit it if you have to wait another hour on the ferry.

The city is built around the main ferry terminal, which is active 24 hours a day to transport just about everything (except rabid dogs). It is a beautiful sight to see the activity in the harbour The locals even does make the joke that the port would do better without all the ferries better. You can find vegetable sellers at the entrance of the bus station and there are some simple shops 100m away from the ferry terminal.
You will also find warungs down the road, which leads to the city. You'll have no trouble to buy here food, such as Ikan Bakar Nasi Campur and dining facilities. These can be found easily, if you're hungry. It's all very local and affordable, but be prepared to negotiate, if the price seems too high.

 

 

This unique curved structure hangs over the main street of Gilimanuk. It represents the four Hindu dragons that protect the "Amrita nectar of immortal life" from the devil. This ancient Indian story is popular among the Balinese. This street is the only way to leave the island to reach Java. The harbor is only a few kilometers away, where you can take the ferry to cross over Bali to Java.

Uit een reisverslag:

"Gilimanuk is a port in Bali, located near the ferry to / from Java. Here is nothing to do for the tourist, there are only two hotels. The ferry that has to transfer us 3 km far from Ketapang (island of Java) to Gilimanuk (island of Bali) does 1 hours.
After about 5 minutes we are floating all the time at sea in front of the harbor, where together with a whole row of other ferries we have to wait our turn to moor ... Again the end of the Ramadam is playing a part ... the many Muslims that their family in Java (where the largest population of Muslims is located) visit, stand in kilometers long traffic jams to the port, on the island of Bali. All available ferries were deployed on this line ... that there are not enough mooring possibilities for this ... they have not thought about that!"
