There are no cars on any of the Gili islands as they are all too small to really require one, using the horse drawn carts or hiring a bike is the best way to get around the island although nowhere is out of walking distance as it only takes a couples of hours to walk the entire perimeter of the island.
There are also boats available that can take you around the coast to different locations or take you to the other Gili islands if you feel like a day of island hopping in this beautiful part of the world. Many people visit this area via fast boat although it is possible if you are on a tight budget to take the public ferry to Lombok and then take a bemo or bus to the port that leads to the Gili Islands which is a days journey although it will save you the $50 boat cost and will mean you will experience the mainland of Lombok as well.
