Indonesia has over 16,000 islands, come and experience one of the most beautiful of them. Situated 54 kilometers to the east of Bali lies the island of Lombok. Though relatively new to tourism, Lombok is fast emerging as one of Indonesia's best kept secrets. Off the northwest coast of Lombok lie the three famous Gilis (which means small island) Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan.
Gili Trawangan is the largest of the coral ringed Gili Islands. Originally home only to a handful of fisherman, it is surrounded by underwater coral gardens and covered in tropical blooms and coconuts plantations. Gili Trawangan was first discovered when informed travellers happened upon this tropical island paradise. Since then, the island has become a popular heaven for those looking for the perfect holiday retreat.
If you've been dreaming of pristine white sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters with extensive reefs, abundant sea life and giant turtles so popular with divers and snorkelers, look no further.
Whether you're looking to dive some of the best sites in Indonesia, snorkel, explore or simply relax under the sun, Gili Trawangan is the place for you. The island has a reputation for being relaxed and laid-back, yet sophisticated and chic. No cars or motorbikes are allowed on the island. The hardest decision you'll have to make while you're here is whether to walk, cycle or take a horse cart to discover the Island's beauty. Friendly locals, amazingly good food, enough activities including reef surfing, horse riding, fishing, cycling, golf and interesting people from all around the world will ensure your holiday is unforgettable. It's the combination of these traits that makes Gili T (as its known) such a popular place to visit.
