Benoa port is located close to Denpasar and attends to passenger cruises vessels, freighters and traditional Indonesia coasters.. The port has a new berth intended for use by larger cargo vessels (containerized and bulk) and passenger services. A recently completed toll bypass road has aided in easing access between the Port and to the Ngurah Rai International Airport.
Benoa port is the most suitable port for the receiving of containerized cargo for Bali. The other ports on the island are set up for RoRo operations, bulk commodities (cement) and passenger movements.

The Port of Benoa is classified as an international port.
Therefore, internationally sourced cargo may only move in or out of the port in conformity with Indonesian Customs Rules and Regulation.
However, the customs clearances for International cargo entering Bali are processed through another port in Indonesia (typically Surabaya or Jakarta).
There are no customs officers available at the port itself.
All customs issues must be resolved in Denpasar Customs office.
For information on Bali customs guidance, please see the following links: 1.3 Indonesia Customs Information
There is no designated multipurpose terminal as the main quay at the Port of Benoa is used for a number of functions. These functions include passenger ferry terminal, general cargo and other traffic movements.
There are no silos or bulk storage facilities at Benoa Port, nor are there any bagging facilities or bagging units. Also, there is no bulk handling equipment available (i.e. Grabs and Hoppers) thus cement, fertilizers and other potential free flowing cargo is handled ‘ break-bulk’ or palletized.
