20 – 21 November, 2008
Finally I visit Gili Trawangan. Pulau yang selalu di sebut â€“ sebut keindahannya dan selalu aku promisikan ke tamu yang akan ksana, walau aku sendiri belum pernah melihat pulau itu. Gambaran itu kini nyata dan pasti akan selalu terkenang. Ini sebenarnya short holiday yang sangat spontan, kadang masih ga percaya kalau akhirnya aku pergi juga. Tapi ini jadi jauh lebih menyenangkan menurutku, no big preparation, kita siapkan apa yang bisa, bahkan ikan mas kecil yang aku pelihara dalam botol, lupa aku titipkan pada tetangga yang biasanya dengan senang hati menerimanya. Untung saja ikanku masih mau tersenyum padaku saat aku pulang, kemudian cacing beku yang aku ambilkan dari lemari es langsung dilahapnya sampai ludes!. I am sorry, I really need you here with me in my room.
08:15 pagi itu, aku tiba dengan shuttled Gili Cat di Padang Bai Harbor. Pakde telah menunggu disana karena dia memutuskan untuk own transfer by his motor bike from Ubud to Padang Bai. After waiting for 30 minutes, embarkation pun dimulai. Karena aku banyak yang kenal dengan crew Gili Cat, I feel more comfortable, even masih takut kena serangan mabuk laut.
Gili Trawangan, the most popular among the three Giliâ€™s. Just kick back and enjoy the sun, nightly beach parties and sea. The main stripe is full of accommodations, restaurants, and dive shops. If you are seeking a quieter place to stay there are bungalows in the north. This Island is also known as “Party Island”, where mostly young European find themselves “Lost In Paradise”. If you come during the Peak Season (July-August, December-January), most places are full and prices are doubled. An advanced reservation is a must.
With spectacular sunrises over Lombok’s Mount Rinjani volcano and breathtaking sunsets that illuminate Bali’s towering Mount Agung volcano, together with warm hospitality of the Gili Trawangan residents, it’s not surprising that most visitors end up staying longer than originally plan.
Accommodation on Gili Trawangan
Most of the accommodation centrally located on south east of Gili Trawangan. A few new establishments of bungalows with a better facilities are now available. Places in the front (beach line) are more expensive. The upmarket accommodation is no longer dominated by Villa Ombak and Villa Almarik. There are many new quality boutique resorts are now available. Gili Trawangan is more developed than other Gilis for the last few years. There are also a few places to stay around the north and south west coast in more quiet atmosphere.
The First Time Snorkeling
The most important thing for a first time snorkeler is to get comfortable wearing the mask and breathing through the snorkel. Some people get anxious and have difficulty breathing through a snorkel while wearing a mask, so it is important to test things out in shallow water first. Many first timers have jumped into the water on a snorkeling charter only to realize they aren’t comfortable wearing a mask and breathing through a tube – this often takes a few minutes to get used to. While standing in shallow water, practice putting your face below the surface and looking through the mask. You can breathe through the snorkel while looking around at the aquatic life. In shallow waters this can be a fantastic way to see many things without expending the energy of swimming.
Snorkeling in shallow water is also a good time to learn to use the equipment effectively. Although relatively simple, beginning snorkelers should know their way around their mask and snorkel, including how to clear both of water. This is an essential skill, as open waves or splashes can send water into the open end of a snorkel, and masks can develop tiny leaks during a dive. Having a mask or snorkel fill with water can be a scary experience the first time, so snorkelers should be comfortable with the process of clearing their equipment.
