Gili Trawangan has always had the stigma for being the ‘Party Island’ of the Gilis and there are numerous restaurants and bars open until 2pm along the main strip and the beach, however most kitchens close around 11pm.
There are regular party nights with DJ’s spinning the latest hip hop, dance and house hits, they are rotated so there is only one party a night which can stay open until 4am.
Currently the schedule is Monday night for the infamous Blue Marlin rave party, Tuesday night is Reggae at Dream Divers, Wednesday nights for the ‘Tir na Nog’ Irish bar party, with a mix of hip hop and house music, Friday night at Rudys Bar and Saturday nights at Dive Indonesia.
Full Moon Partys
When the islands are busy there are Full Moon Partys on the southern part of Trawangan, located not far from the main strip on an enclosed beach area. Hosted by the local people using the surf watch tower as a bar and a mixture of DJ’s playing hard house, trance and techno until sunrise.
