Use the quicklinks below to jump to the desired section regarding transport in and around Amlapura.


Perama shuttles stop at Tirta Gangga, Amlapura and Jasri Beach only with minimum numbers of passengers, so it's probably a better option to arrange your own private charter.

Larger buses depart from the big roundabout on the western edge of Amlapura bound for Batubulan near Denpasar. They don't operate in the same manner as bemos and won't drop you at any location not on a through road. This journey takes two hours and costs 35,000 rupiah.

Bemos travel all the way from Klungkung to Amlapura via Padang Bai and Candi Dasa and pass the turn off to Jasri Beach about 3km before Amlapura. From the turn off, it is approximately 2km to the ocean. Bemos from Amlapura should cost 3,000 rupiah to the turnoff and bemos from Candi Dasa approximately 15,000 rupiah.

Bemos from Amlapura depart from the bemo terminal at the southern end of town and travel over the mountains past Tirta Gangga, Culik and Tulamben and terminate in Kubu on the north coast.

The fare from Amlapura to Tirta Gangga is 3,000 rupiah, but only if the bemo is full and you are able to drive a hard bargain. Otherwise, if you are the only person in the bemo, 5,000 rupiah is reasonable.

Amlapura to Culik (for Amed) should be 15,000 rupiah at which point you will need to catch another bemo or charter an ojek to reach the villages around Amed.

Bemos from Amlapura to Candi Dasa, Padang Bai and Klungkung should cost 15,000, 20,000 and 25,000 rupiah respectively.
