TripAdvisor Reviews Villa Almarik Lombok Gili Trawangan
Travel Blogs from Gili Trawangan
... so fast on Gili that the feedback mechanism of TripAdvisor and other review sites hasn't kept up, so you have to be extra careful about what you pay for.
While the diving was great on Gili T, there isn't much else to do. The beaches all have lots of dead coral washed up on them, and it tends to be so windy that you get coated in sand if you try to simply relax.

We suggested maybe he do a transfer. So he did but it kept not working, it kept coming out too faint. But he kept wiping it off and do in exactly the same ...
... Island. He is the second local to do so. We must look rich?! Interesting…. Made it over and hired a set of fins each. We’ve given up on the yellow swimming pool ones we bought over as they are terrible for snorkelling/body boarding. We’ve both lost too much skin from both feet. Bad move that one. Set out for Turtle Point! We were in full spot a turtle mode as even though Melinda had already seen two already ...
