How to get to and from Bukit

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

No public transport runs to the beaches around the Bukit bar the SARBAGITA and Kura Kura Bus services to Jimbaran and Nusa Dua, and though you could feasibly use one of these options, you’ll then have to negotiate with the local taxi mafia to transport you to your destination, and it may be cheaper to use a metered taxi such as Blue Bird or one of the online services Go-Jek of Grab for the entire journey. If self driving, be aware if you use the Bali Mandara Toll Road, you’ll need to have an e-toll card as cash is not accepted. Cards can be purchased at Bank Mandiri and Indomaret outlets.

The set rate for an airport taxi to Uluwatu is 225,000 rupiah.

Although regular metered Blue Bird Taxis and online services such as Go-Jek and Grab can drop you in the Bukit area they are “forbidden” to operate or pick up. Travelling around the Bukit area means negotiating with the local taxi mafia. Expect to pay around four times the rate compared to other areas in Bali.

Most travellers opt to hire scooters which are available for 60,000 rupiah per day. Wear a helmet and check that your travel insurance covers you. For folks without an international drivers licence ojeks (motorbike taxis) can be hired for short trips at a negotiable rate or for a full day for around 250,000 rupiah.
