Indonesia Travel Guide

Gili Islands

The Gili islands are a group of three small islands off Lombok´s west coast. Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan all have superb white sandy beaches, clear water and coral reefs with colorful fish. It is one of the best areas for scuba diving around Lombok. Most tourists are from the younger generation; they relax in the sun, do snorkeling or simply walk along the beaches.

On the island no motorized vehicles are allowed. So the main way of transportation is bicycles and small horse drawn carriages, called cidomos. And because there are nearly no trader and beggar, the stay is much more relaxed than it is on Bali, for example. A power supply is only partly available, so that technical devices are misplaced here. On the island there is absolute serenity here and you will surely relax your body and mind.
