Benoa Harbour is our first and last port destination for our daily fast boat transfer service. Bali’s main port is at the entrance of Teluk Benoa (Benoa Bay), the wide but shallow body east of the airport runway. Benoa Harbour is on the northern side of the bay – a square of docks and port buildings on reclaimed land. It is linked to mainland Bali by a 2 km causeway, which is now also part of the Bali Mandara Toll Rd. It’s referred to as Benoa port or Benoa Harbour to distinguish it from Benoa village, on the southern side of the bay.
