Where is Mad Monkey Gili Trawangan?
Gili Trawangan is a small island off of mainland Lombok, just an hour and a half east of Bali. “Gili T” is 3 kilometers long and 2 kilometers wide — the perfect little slice of paradise! There are no motor vehicles allowed on the island so most visitors walk or cycle around.
How to get to Mad Monkey Gili Trawangan
To get here, you must take a boat from either Lombok (30 minute ferry) or from Bali (90 minute speed boat). For more details on how to get here, read our guide on how to get to the Gili islands.
We recommend getting the EkaJaya boats, as they are the most reliable. From Padang Bai Fast Boat Harbour in Bali, the boat takes about 90 minutes.
From the Gili Trawangan pier, head north up the coast for 750 meters. Turn left onto Jalan Vila Kelapa (look for Blu d’a Mare) and head west for 1.5 kilometers. When you reach the beach, turn right. Mad Monkey is 2 minutes up the road.
