Summertime is quickly approaching and so the excitement is building up. Probably this is the time of the year when most of us are day dreaming and already looking forward to a nice and exotic vacay.

We found a piece of paradise that may steal your heart straight away and make you not to leave it once you get there. It takes only 90 mins boat ride north east from Bali. @pilotmaria is taking us to this heavenly island, called Gili Trawangan. This is one of the three Gili islands, Trawangan being the biggest of all three and officially known as ‘the party’ island.

Maria has been to Gili island twice so far and she fell in love with it since she first visited 7 years ago. A lot has changed since then. The island got busier and is predominantly visited by a younger crowed. Probably because is called ‘the party’ island?!  Also you won’t have to worry about the lights that used to be cut off around 10 pm every evening back then. Now you can explore the island day and night!

 

A typical day in Gili

A great way to start off your day is with a session of yoga with @katemiddeltonyoga by the beach.

Enjoy delicious breakfast at  @thebanyantreegili with a variety of options to choose from.

Explore the magnificent sights of the ocean by doing scuba diving with Kate. She is not only a yoga teacher but also a professional scuba diver so you will be in safe hands. If you are planning to do a scuba diving course, this is the place to do it.

If you want to watch the sunset with an amazing view then you should be on Malibu beach and try some delicious cocktails at Malibu Club.

Riding a bicycle or walking around the island is the only way to do it as there are no other forms of transport. It takes about 1 hour cycling to see all the island.

You can watch this great youtube video done by Maria while in Gili. Enjoy!
