Gili Trawangan

GiliTrawangan is the largest of the three small islands or dyke in the northwest of Lombok. Trawangan is also the only dyke whose height above sea level is quite significant. With a length of 3 km and a width of 2 km, Trawangan has a population of about 800 people. Among the three dykes, Trawangan has the most diverse facilities for tourists; the tavern “TîrnaNôg” claims that Trawangan is the smallest island in the world with an Irish bar. The most densely populated part is the east of the island.

In the past, this island was used as a dumping ground for convicts. At that time because all the prisons were full, the king who was in power at that time threw 350 Sasak rebels to this island. It was only around the 1970s that the island was used as a stopover for Bugis people from Sulawesi who later settled here for generations with Sasak and Balinese residents.
