Gili Trawangan is the largest of the three islands close to Lombok, Indonesia, near Bali. It offers easy access from Bali by hourly ferries from several points in the south of the island, and the journey takes about an hour. The village consists of a waterfront boardwalk. On one side, there are bars and a beach that you can admire sunset to sunset, as well as smaller, charming hotels. The other side of the island hosts the larger hotels, but I recommend you stay in this area. Essentials: a bathing suit, flip-flops and a sarong. Required: Wanting to walk barefoot on the beach and relax, or snorkel to discover the coral reef, or tour the island by bike along its four kilometres of trails.
