Gili Trawangan Island Holidays

Rustic island retreat

The largest and most popular of the Gili Islands, Gili Trawangan holidays are perfect if you're looking for lazy beach days with the option for vibrant nights. The main centre of the island is lined with all the shops, restaurants and bars you could wish for, but even at the quieter parts, you don't have to walk too far to find a rustic café perfect for a relaxing drink. As with all of the Gili Islands, there is no motorised transport here, so we love hiring a bicycle and cycling around the island to find a secluded spot of beach just for ourselves. It goes without saying that the diving and snorkelling is great from here, so we definitely recommend spending at least three nights to allow ample time both on land and under water! Holidays to Gili Trawangan will leave you feeling completely relaxed.

Destination Highlights
  • The liveliest of the Gili Islands
  • Wide choice of restaurants and bars
  • Horse riding centre
  • Great snorkeling and diving

Top Tips from our Experts

Destination Executive

Gili T as it is mainly known is perfect for lazy beach days and lively nights. Don't worry if you don't want too much nightlife though as hotels are scattered around the island so you can find a quiet spot away from the main centre.

Make sure to explore the island during your stay, grab a bike (most hotels hire them for a small fee) and cycle around – it will only take about an hour max, and it’s worth it for the amazing views.
