The ponies on the island are treated horribly and the abuse they are dealt with is heartbreaking. For a minimum of 12hrs a day they are forced to cart massive amounts of cargo, often more than 10 times their body weight and all without shelter or water. They're not given the most simplest of necessities and are abused throughout the... More

I have been in Gili Trawangan for a week, over New Years Eve with my girlfriend. We left from the port of Sanur and after 2 hours of speedboat we reached the harbor of Gili T, as some people call it. The first thing we noticed when we arrived, was the number of boats parked right on the shore of... More

can only speak for Gili Air, it was quiet laid-back, good restaurants, nice beaches, no cars, good diving, nice people, good snorkelling too - altogether a good place to relax for a few days

We went here because, like many others, we read so much fantastic reviews about the Gili's and saw so many amazing pictures... So we decided to spend A few days around New Year on Gili Air. Desapointed! Only one small part of the island is suitable for swimming at the South East. The rest is rough, rocky and above all... More

The beaches and front are very dirty in GT, after visiting them all I think Gili Air is the best, cleaner and more interesting

I spent 3 days in Gili Air in Dec 2014, it is a spectacular natural beauty, clear water and white sand. There are no cars allowed on the island which is wonderful. But the horse carriages used to carry passengers and move construction supplies cast a dark shadow on my visit. I would not go back for that reason. I... More

This was a tip from a local and was an amazing day out & great snorkelling. Loved the remotness. Our driver arranged snorkelling gear and little plastic bottles with bread to feed fish. Lunch on another little island and more snorkelling on Honeymoon Island. Please contact Awan Mardiawan on Facebook

After reading about dodgy clinics I asked staff at Oceans 5 about a good one. And indeed, the clinic had a real Medical Doctor, not a nurse or a quack. It is located in the main area of Gili Air. From where boats drop you off go inland for about 5 minutes. The name is Gam clinic and is open... More
