Gili Islands and Lombok from a airplaneGetting to Gili Trawangan couldn't be easier!  The most convenient way from Bali is by fast boat.  There are several companies offering this service throughout the day, although most leave in the morning.  The majority of the operators will include a hotel pick up in the ticket price, although some areas further from the harbour will incur an additional pick up fee.   You will then arrive at the harbour in Gili Trawangan which is just a short 5 minute stroll from Trawangan Dive.   You can expect the trip to take around 4 hours door to door.

Our closest airport is Lombok Praya which has daily flights from Bali and all other major domestic airports.   You can also fly directly from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.  We can arrange airport pick ups for you any time, although these need to be booked in advance.

For those of you with plenty of time on your hands, the slow boat from Padang Bai operates daily.  Expect a bit of an adventure with this option, and usually the long wait for connecting transfers means that it will take you almost an entire day to get here, but it's a wonderful way to site see.

Gili Islands General Information

Gili Trawangan, the largest of the 3 Gilis off the north west coast of Lombok and close to Bali, is very easy to reach from both. The first of the islands to attract tourists, it has continued to develop as a very popular destination for travellers from all over the world. Hotels and restaurants can now cater for all ages, tastes and nationalities; from economy to luxury, from local style eating in warungs (cafes) to candlelit fine dining on the beach.
A major attraction is the lack of motorised vehicles on the island. The 7.9 km coastal path teems with pedestrians, cyclists and horse carts for the less energetic and provides the almost non-stop temptation of shaded watering holes to rest, refresh and, of course, choose a way to rehydrate!

The sandy or coral beaches and the wonderfully warm clear blue sea provide the perfect picture postcard setting with stunning backdrops of Lombok's Mt Rinjani and Bali's Mt Agung. Snorkelling with turtles and thousands of reef fish can be enjoyed straight off the beach and the best dive sites are but a short boat trip away.

Whether your aim is complete rest, partying all night or anything and everything in between, Gili Trawangan has something for everyone.
