Gili Trawangan is the largest of three Lombok’s Gili Islands (Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air) and is the only one to rise significantly above sea level. It is 3 km long and 2 km wide with a population of about 700. Gili Trawangan offers a white sand island, surrounded by turquiose water with good sunrise over Lombok’s Mount Rinjani volcano and superb sunsets that can be seen from sunset point on the south tip of the island. More Story
Lombok's most popular tourist destination, the Gili Islands started off as a backpacker mecca. This is still true but times are changing and there are now a rash of glamour options on the islands, especially Gili Trawangan.
The islands are very relaxed and laid-back, with countless little beachside cafes still playing reggae and serving up banana pancakes, but also at the other end of the scale, elaborate seafood buffets, fresh salads and very good western and Asian food.
Best of all, there are no cars or motorbikes to disturb the peace. _________________ Shenandoah bed and breakfast

Gili Trawangan is one of the most attractive destination of Lombok. On Gili Trawangan, there are no motorized vehicles. The main means of transportation are bicycles and cidomo (a small horsedrawn carriage). For traveling to and from each of the Gilis, locals usually use motorized boats and speedboat. So there is lots of fun.
