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.

There are many fast boat operators running directly between Bali and Gili Trawangan. There are two main ports in Bali, Serangan and Padang Bai.  Which one you choose will depend largely on where you are staying in Bali.  For those staying in the Kuta, Seminyak or Sanur area, Serangan Harbour is a shorter driver.  Padang Bai is more suitable for those coming from Ubud or the northern areas in Bali.  There are also more budget options from Padang Bai.   We are more than happy to book fast boats for your, just email us on This email address is being protected from spambots.
