"All my days on Gili Trawangan were topped off with a trip to the east beach in the afternoon with a great read and a Bintang. The sunset is on the other side of the island, but it only takes 20 minutes or so to cycle there. I canít think of a better way to end the day. Can you?
I had read that Gili Trawanganís night market was the place to eat, so I went there on my last evening. The nightly food market is located right off the main road in the middle of the eastern side of Gili Trawangan and itís composed of stalls all selling local, fresh seafood. They prepare it on the spot with rice and corn on the side for a fairly cheap price."

Gili Trawangan - at the beach         

 Gili Trawangan is the largest of the three Gili Islands. Gili Trawangan therefore attracts the most visitors. It's about a thirty minute boat trip to the northwest of Lombok, where the island is situated. Normally the fast boats sail daily from Bali directly to Gili Trawangan. All boats sail after Gili Trawangan to Teluk Nare on Lombok. The island measures 3 km long and 2 km wide, it has a population of around 1500. The name Trawangan originates from the Indonesian word Terowongan (Tunnel) due to the presence of a cave tunnel built there during Japanese occupation in World War 2.

The beaches of the Gili's filled with powdery white sand. The water is crystal clear and from the beach you can perfectly see the sunset, with in the background Mount Agung on Bali, but you can also see in the morning a beautiful sunrise with Mount Rinjani on Lombok in the background. Thirty years ago, the Gili islands are uninhabited and they were discovered by the Bugis, who were sailors from Sulawesi. It was only a matter of time before the more adventurous types, such as backpackers would discover the island. At that time Gili Trawangan was developed as a Hippie Party Paradise.

Today Gili Trawangan is a great holiday destination for families of all ages. There are several new hotels, luxury villas and boutique bungalows, which cater to children and the accommodations are offered at affordable price. Some even have a babysitting service. Numerous activities on the islands are organized for families and we are sure that you can fully enjoy your beach holiday.

Of the Gilis, Trawangan is the most developed and geared towards tourism.
The main concentration of settlement, recreation, accommodation and diving business is situated on the eastern side of the island.
A local pub "TÓr na NŰg" claims that Trawangan is the smallest island in the world with an Irish pub.


Unique to the Gili Islands is, that all forms of motorized traffic is prohibited. That means that the only way to explore the island is on foot or by bike, or in the pony carriage, which is called "Cidomos".
One sign of change is the recent introduction four ATM machines on the three Gili Trawangan to be found at Hotel Vila Ombak and Coral Beach.
Itís possible to follow the beach around the perimeter of the island in around two hours on foot. The most popular stretches of beaches are `Goodheartí (the main stretch) and `North Beachí where the best snorkelling is to be found.
All dive centers operate from the beach. You can rent snorkelling equipment easily at one of the "shacks" along the beach. Most tourists stay on Gili Trawangan for diving. Each dive school has its own fleet of traditional outrigger boats, which brings you to one of the 25 most beautiful diving spots. Beware of strong currents and do not try to swim from island to another.

Op de fiets op Gili Trawangan

Apart from the obvious temptations of snorkelling, diving, sunbathing and pub crawls, Gili Trawangan has a fair amount of temptations for the tourists to amuse and to entertain you. Fishing trips and charters can be made with the local outrigger fishing boats who offer day trips with line fishing and trawling.
You can also make trips to Lombok. If you like golf, a visit to the very picturesque Lombok Kosaido Golf and Country Club is highly recommended.
There are snack bars (hawkers) enough along the beach. You'll probably find the food here much better than in the restaurant of your hotel. You will get in contact with the local population easily and the price of the food is much cheaper.
