The tropical island paradise of Gili Trawangan awaits you at Big Bubble Dive and Bungalows. Gili Trawangan is one of 3 idyllic, coral fringed islands famously known as ‘The Gili’s’ off the north west coat of Lombok, Indonesia.
Gili Trawangan is the largest and most popular of the ‘3 Gili’s’. It is known as the ‘party’ island but there are plenty of chances to get away from it all and truly experience this island in the sun!
Long gone are the days of backpackers being the only tourists on the islands, all the businesses have moved up market. Families and holiday makers are now frequently found relaxing in the numerous beach restaurants and bars, or around the various swimming pools on the island.
This has been Gili Trawangan’s success – the island has managed to encourage new visitors to the island, while still being a firm favourite with travelers. Local businesses thrive alongside the western owned businesses, so there is something to suit all budgets and tastes.
There are now several ATMs on the island so cash can be obtained on your visit. However these frequently run out of money after they have been filled. Currency can be exchanged at several money changers and Visa and Master Card are accepted at most of the larger establishments, including Big Bubble.
With “must-see” sunrise’s over Lombok’s Mount Rinjani volcano and breathtaking sunsets that illuminate Bali’s Mount Agung volcano, together with Trawangan’s friendly residents, world class beaches and diving, it’s no surprise that most people end up staying longer or coming back sooner than planned!
