Experienced and novice surfers alike flock to Indonesia’s Gili Trawangan coast for its warm waters and wide range of surf-able waves.

Our staff can direct surfers of all levels to challenging breaks and scenic landscapes. We can also arrange surfing trip and lessons of varying degrees and difficulty on Lombok Island.


The calm, warm waters of the Gili Trawangan coast, right in front of Gili Sands Hotel & Bar make for smooth adventures for novices and experienced kayakers alike. Kayaks can be rented, a short walk up the beach. We recommend that our guests hire a guide to accompany them on their adventure.
