Make your way around the islands!

It is always nice to explore around the island. There are a few different way you can do so. Depending if you are up for walking, running, cycling or going in a hours cart (Chidomo).

There are bars and restaurants all around the island so it is nice to make some pit stops in places.

Walking or Running

Walking around Gili Trawangan, Meno or Air is always the best option. This way you get to see the most. You could actually walk all around on the beach. There are a lot of people running around the Gili, mostly in the morning before it gets to hot.

Walking around Gili Trawangan which is the biggest island takes you about 1.5hrs if you don’t stop. Just to give you an idea of the rest of the islands. You should also go inland and have a look around as well. It is pretty cool!


The Gilis are flat and easy enough to get around.

Bicycles, available for hire on all three islands (per day 50,000Rp to 70,000Rp), this can be a fun way to get around, but sandy stretches of path mean that you will spend time pushing your bike in some places but it is not a biggie.


One option is to take a horse and cart (cidomo) around the island. This might look cool but it is very uncomfortable. You will jump around all over the place in the little wooden “box” back of that horse.

If you decide to still give it a go then the only thing to think about is the condition of the horse. Support the cidomo drivers that look after their horses.

Have fun and be safe!
