Gili Islands

The Gili islands are 3 islands situated between Lombok and Bali. These enchanting islands are barely recognizable on a world map and rapidly becoming one of the worlds top holiday destinations with something for everyone. Originally a heaven for divers due to the phenominal biodiversity hidden in the waters surrounding of this reclusive island the “Turtle Capital of the world” has some truly spectacular wildlife to observe and enjoy. It quickly became a stopover point for backpackers looking for a true island experience with a taste of party thrown in. The Gili’s are evolving into something more; not only an experience of a life time for divers and a stop off for backpackers but a paradise island perfect for family and couple retreats due to the rolling sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. The Gili’s have become a breath of fresh air for those seeking respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The laid back nature of Gili, with the complete absence of motorized vehicles is something that has to be experienced to believe. Each of the Gilis has its own feel and atmosphere in its own little world oblivious of the on goings of the outside world. Each of them, a true paradise island!

Gili Trawangan
The largest and most developed of the 3 Gili Islands, Gili Trawangan has something for everyone. This is the most popular tourist destination of the 3, Gili Trawangan has golden white beaches and unbelievable diverse corals as do the other 2 islands, however it also has a vibrant night life, a huge night market open every night with sellers touting all sorts of local cuisine from fresh barbequed fish with sambal to some of Indonesia’s signature dishes such as Bakso as well as a wide range of restaurants offering different cuisine (there’s even an Indian restaurant). With over 15 dive shops, over 180 hotels, endless activities from Snorkling and fishing trips which can be booked at tourist centres all around the island to pampering Spa treatments where you can experience an authentic Indonesian massage on the beachfront to yoga, gym and free diving lessons for those wanting to stay fit and active during their stay.

Gili Meno
The least developed island of the 3, Gili Meno is the quietest of the 3 Gili’s; a perfect destination for honey mooning couples or those just wanting to get it away from it all. Gili Meno has a beautiful natural lake near the center of the island and a huge bird sanctuary which has tropical bird species from all over the world and even quite bizarrely an estuarine crocodile. Even if you are staying on Gili Trawangan it’s well worth getting a local boat over to check out Gili Meno even just for a day.

Gili Air
The smallest of the Gili’s and closest in proximity to Lombok, this island is in limbo between the high level of development on Gili Trawangan and the almost absence of it on Gili Meno. Like the other two, Gili Air has beautiful rolling beaches, crystal clear waters and enchanting corals to be explored. The head of all 3 islands resides on Gili Air so if you want to find out what is so special about it go and check it out for yourself!
