 Benoa - Profile

Location

Located on the eastern side of the southern tip of Bali, Benoa lies about 8 miles south of the city of Denpasar.

Benoa Harbour
Position 08°45"S, 115°14"E (Benoa Harbour entrance)

This harbour is restricted by tide in parts and its entrance - on the Lombok straight - can be tricky, with 8 knot currents and sometimes standing waves if there is a swell and an opposing curent and tide that sets to the South. Time things carefully when planning on entering. Currents flow south during the SE monsoon and north during the NW monsoon.

The pass through the reef leading into Benoa Harbour should not be negotiated at night as the lights can be confusing. Benoa Harbour is a very busy commercial harbour and the boats are pretty packed in places. Parts are very shallow, and the shoal extends well into the marked channel in places, especially on the north side of the outer channel.

Serangan Harbour
Position 08°43"31'S, 115°15"11'E (Serangan Harbour entrance)

This harbour lies 1 KM to the north of Benoa and is accessed through a separate channel through the reef. It offers two protected anchorages.

Clearance

This is an official Port of Entry.

NEW Indonesian CIQP procedures came into effect from the 27th February, 2016.

A CAIT, Green Book/Sailing Permit and use of an Agent to obtain clearance papers are no longer required. See Noonsite Indonesia Formalities for full details.

Previously any yachts docked at Bali International Marina needed to use the marina office as a clearance agent, but due to the recent changes in the regulations, this should no longer be obligatory.

Customs in Benoa are reported to be very friendly and understand the new clearance system. They do however require that yachts that clear in here return in person every 6 months to renew the Vessel Declaration Form - reporting by e-mail is currently not permitted here (as it is in Sabang for example).

Location of offices

CIQP Clearance is still required, but hopefully should be alot simpler now the new system is in place.

All the necessary offices are south of the marina within walking distance - except immigration which is in Benoa  town ($8 taxi ride). The Harbour Master’s office must be visited first, followed by Navy, Immigration, Quarantine and Customs, before returning to the Harbour Master.

Docking

As an alternative to Bali International Marina in Benoa Harbour (which is small and often full), there is a good anchorage very popular with the cruising community in the bay opposite the village of Serangan. Serangan is really just a small island, attached to Bali by a causeway.

Benoa Harbour

A buoyed channel leads to Benoa Harbour and Bali Marina is located in the NE part of the harbour. The marina monitors Channel 77 during office hours (0800- 2000). Bali Marina is small- about 20 slots - most of which seem to be filled with resident boats. They have a nice restaurant/bar area, but are expensive by Indonesian standards (2012: US$25/day for a berth), and there are no moorings available via the marina. The marina charges a US$5/day landing fee to tie up dinghies.

There are moorings here, run by a local who will find you if you pick one up.

A few sailboats manage to anchor north of the marina and moorings, but it is very shallow and space is very limited here. Rumor has it you can also anchor south of the marina and main channel.

Serangan Harbour

This lies 1 KM to the North of Benoa and is accessed through a separate channel through the reef. Multiple masts are visible from the Lombok Channel and the channel into Serangan anchorage is marked by a couple of red-and-green floating buoys. The entrance is 10m wide marked by small unlit buoys, passing through breaking reef. Entrance by night should be avoided.

Once inside the buoys, you have two well-protected anchorages with about 30 or 40 moorings that cater to a mix of cruisers and local boats. Even if these fill up, there is still plenty of room for anchoring. This harbour is well protected from the NW monsoon, but more open to the SE. (Photo of anchorage from sv-totem.blogspot.com May 2013).

The price of all moorings here includes a US$70/month (Rp 600,000) Village Fee, which is supposed to go to the people of Serangan. The moorings cost US$10/day.

Moorings can be booked via Isle Marine Services, Serangan Yacht Services or Mande Yacht Service (see details below).

There is plenty of room behind the reef to anchor in 7m mud. In fact, with the SE monsoon, there is less of a fetch here than at the moorings, but it's less convenient for getting ashore. Swell protection is good everywhere at Serangan. You cannot anchor inside of where the moorings start.

There are two docks, in constant use, where you can tie your dinghy. Security does not appear to be a problem here.

Drinking water is available from the shops in the village and there is a supermarket not too far away as well as fuel.

This is a friendly, traditional place, with lots of temples.

Reported by Liz Datson:

1) There is a report about Serengan on noonsite - dated admittedly 2012 - and they give a guy called Mande a bad wrap. We dealt with a chap called Mande (in his own words “like Monday not Tuesday”) from Mande Yacht Service. I don't know if it's the same guy who got the bad wrap in 2012, but this Mande was great for us. Good English, provided a mooring in good condition, a safe place to leave your dinghy when going ashore, took the small amount of rubbish we had, provided us with excellent CLEAN diesel for the price quoted and at the time(s) specified, carried by his boat out to ours. Could also help with laundry, water etc. which we didn't need, and sent one of his guys to show us the way to a particular shop we were looking for.

2) Benoa Marina: We were unable to obtain diesel here – minimum amount they appear to be able to organise is 500lts - more than my total capacity.
Un potable water only available from the tap on the wharf.
Wi fi - they were working on it - meaning none.
The laundry service - (overnight) took 3 days.
They do have electricity, but we couldn't access it from the berth we had.
However the staff (Made)are friendly, and did try to find for us the couple of services we required, sail maker and hf radio tech. Neither of whom actually materialised, but at least they tried to contact them!
The small cafe/restaurant does excellent omelettes for breakfast and has good real (Bali) coffee!

Transiting through Indonesia - stopping to refuel.
Posted on behalf of Robert Geier / SY China Dolphin

While in transit from Darwin to Malaysia I needed to refuel, but did not have a visa or CAIT for Indonesia, so was not sure what kind of reception I would get when I stopped in Bali looking for diesel. There is was an Indonesian Marine Police boat stationed in Benoa Harbour, and after explaining my problem to them they were extremely helpful in letting me tie up alongside, calling their fuel supplier who turned up with a barge about an hour later and charged a very low rate for diesel, and drove me to an ATM to get cash for payment. I am not sure if all cruisers will get this kind of help when stopping in Bali to refuel without visa or CAIT, or if I just got lucky, but worth trying if anyone else is in a similar situation.
