Gili Trawangan is one of three small islands off the North-West coast of Lombok. Over the years a resort island, fringed with white beaches and surrounded by coral reefs, has developed amongst the coconut plantations. Since the island is free of motorised transport, visitors get around on foot, on bicycles and in horse-carts, and the sound of car horns is replaced by the jingling of bells and the occasional hooter.
Water comes from wells and is slightly salty, so drinking water is shipped in from Lombok, as are all other supplies, so prices can sometimes be a bit higher than on the mainland. However, contrary to popular lore, there are plenty of ATM's and shops offering everything that a traveller needs, so you don't need to stock up before you head this way.
It's easy to get here, we can help arrange your transfers for you. Please see our How To Get Here guide below.
