We had high hopes for Gili Trawangan, however it really failed to meet expectations. Getting back to mainland Bali was a nightmare, due to large waves and our quick boat not being able to cross (we were made to endure a 12 hour ship ride back, which was quite simply awful!) The food is no where near as fresh as the mainland, and service is quite backward and slow. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend visiting Gili Trawangan and wouldn't return.

I have been to more then 50 countries and have traveled all over Bali, this place is amazing. I love that there are no cars here and you can watch the sunrise on one side of the island and take a 15 min bike ride to the other side and see the sunset. Very relaxing. If you come you must scuba dive. Plenty of places do certifications. Must check out blue marine dive center... awesome people best dive shop for sure... they pay close attention to detail. If scuba Is not your thing can paddle board or snorkle and sometimes even get done good surf.

We visited Gili T for our honeymoon as we wanted somewhere relatively quiet, relaxing and somewhere we’ve never been before. The island is beautiful with clear blue waters and white beaches. The locals are friendly and if you don’t fancy cycling, you can walk the island in a couple of hours - we recommend this as you can do it at your own pace. There are no cars, so transport on the island is by foot, bike or horse. Bikes are scattered across the island and most hotels provide them. You can jump on a boat to visit the islands which is about 10-20 minutes, and a private boat from Lombok to Gili T took around 20 minutes. The weather is hotter than you think so pack a high suncream than normal - you are on the equator after all! Lots of bars and places to eat too, serving local foods and drinks, as well as international. If you get the chance to visit the island please do. It’s stunning. I’m gutted to be leaving.

Great island to visit, I prefer the Gilis to Bali with their great beaches, snorkeling and food options. My biggest complaint is all the trash around the island and in the water with locals and tourists doing little to clean up. Please bring a reusable water bottle and opt out of getting straws/ single use plastic items! If you're looking for a place to party this is it- for families and a quieter time/ cleaner conditions Gili M or Gili Air are a better choice.
