Island Activities

Gili Trawangan Island Activities


The Stud Stables on Gili Trawangan have a choice of well trained horses for hire. Enjoy a ride around the island on sandy beaches or trek through the coconut groves. All rides are accompanied by well trained guides.



The Gilis are one of Indonesia’s top dive destinations and have a range of dive sites to suit everyone from beginners to technical divers. Dive sites vary in depth, topography and marine life and all are located very close to the islands. Fun dives and courses are available at all centers; choose a dive shop in the Gili Islands Dive Association (GIDA) for high standards and safety. We are happy to help you arrange for Dive trips and courses and to recommend an accredited Dive Centre that best suits you.



Trawangan is a snorkeler’s paradise with an abundance of fish and turtles to be seen just off the beach in the north east and north shores of the island. There is a 3 island snorkeling trip daily by glass bottom boat or private charters also available.

Surfing, Paddling Boarding and Kayaking


Off the southern end of Trawangan is a right hand break called Secrets and board hire is available from the surf look out on the beach. Local surfers are always happy to offer information or lessons for the less experienced. Kayaks and paddle board tuition and hire is available from Trawangan Dive.



There are many spas offering a range of massage styles and body treatments.



The beach track goes all the way around the island and is 6.9 km. There are lots of paths crisscrossing through the middle of the island so hiring a bike for the day is the best way to explore Trawangan.



Walking around the island takes around 1 hour and 45 minutes and there is also a path to the top of the hill offering a spectacular view of the island and over to Lombok.

Fishing trips


Line fishing and trawling trips can be arranged and boats have experienced guides on board or rent a rod and reel and head to the end of the jetty like the locals do to try your luck.

Day Trips to Lombok


Lombok has many attractions for a day trip.
