There are also boats available that can take you around the coast to different locations or take you to the other Gili islands if you feel like a day of island hopping in this beautiful part of the world.
Many people visit this area via fast boat although it is possible if you are on a tight budget to take the public ferry to Lombok and then take a bemo or bus to the port that leads to the Gili Islands which is a days journey although it will save you the $50 boat cost and will mean you will experience the main land of Lombok as well. There is plenty of decent accommodation and hotels in Gili Trawangan as well as budget and super budget places. It is not difficult to find hotels in Gili Trawangan and to get a beach side room with a pool, private spa and whole list of other facilities as there is so much coast for the size of the island.
