Imagine three peaceful little atolls off the coast of the island of Lombok, with amazing beaches and crystal clear water full of fishes and multicolored corals. Here is a snapshot of what the Gili Islands has in store for you, and much more! Any motor vehicle is prohibited here, and how pleasant it is. You’ll only see those nice horse-drawn carriages, which remember you to take your time and to enjoy your holidays peacefully.
Diving and snorkeling here is just amazing, you’ll enjoy a magnificent and very diverse seabed, and many marine species as sea turtles, (harmless) sharks and rays.
Each island has its own style, from west to east and from further to closer to Lombok:
- Gili Trawangan : the biggest and most lively
- Gili Meno : the smallest and most quiet
- Gili Air : the most authentic and rural one
Wherever you’re staying, you can take a boat shuttle to go from island to island quickly. Another option would be to take a day-trip on a small boat that will take you on the best diving spots around the three islands.
