There is a boat called the Island Hopper that runs twice a day, once at 9:00 am and then again at 4:00 pm. The boat takes half an hour to get here. Relax and take in the island life, as everyone from backpackers to locals returning from Lombok, use these boats to commute between Lombok and the three Gilis. Speed is not necessarily of the essence, but they are a reliable, affordable transport option. This boat gives you a chance to soak in the true Indonesian boating experience, highly recommended, if you are not in a hurry.
Sunsets, Island Vibes, and Trawangan Viewing Point
The Gili Trawangan viewpoint, or Gili T hilltop, is located on the southwest corner of Gili T. It’s only a short walk up, which should only take about 5 minutes from the beach. The Gili Trawangan hilltop viewpoint is covered in trees, which are usually missing their leaves. I suspect this might be due to the fierce wind that can roll over the island. Once you get to the top, you’ll have 360-degree panoramic views of Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air. On a clear day, you’ll probably also see all the way to Lombok, and even Mount Agung poking out from the Bali mainland.
The three small Gili Islands, fringed by white-sand beaches and coral reefs, are among the most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia, and certainly one of the best snorkeling area in Southeast Asia. The crystal-clear waters of these paradisiacal islands, where turtle-watching is the star attraction, are the guarantee of exceptional snorkeling experiences. Gili Trawangan is the largest and the most populated of the three islands. Known as the « party island », Gili Trawangan is easily reachable from both Bali and Lombok.
