Gili Trawangan

Best way to get to the Gilis is to drive to Bangsal Harbor in Lombok. Be careful because there is a lot of Scam around the area!!!
The public boat charge 10000/person to Gilis Trawangan and starts as soon as 20 people are on board.
An island with white sandy beaches, espacially in the east, north and south. It`s more rocky in the west. Be careful of low tide in the north. Best is east side for snorkeling and swimming, but don`t head to far away from the beach, because of the drifts.
Don`t be scared about the waste on the whole island......sometimes they burn it at the morning on the beach. Most of the times it will be thrown somewhere......
Most busy area is the east side. Good view from the mountain. Nice sunsets at the west side. Overall a small island. Don`t rent a bicyle, cause often it`s not possible to drove around the whole island because of the deep sand and you have to push the bicycle by hand. Better take a two or three hour walk around the island.
Very interesting is the handling with the Tax. A lot of restaurants charge the Tax including Service. So take a look at the menu first! It depends between 10 and 25%.
We stayed at Pondok Lita, a acommodation in the third row. Quiet and clean with very nice guys who want to teach everybody bahasa indonesia. But they also want to learn different languages to talk with their guests too.
Absolutely recommended!!!
