Gilis – Lombok
Renowned for their small surface areas bordered by turquoise blue clear waters and white sandy beaches, it is by fast boat from Bali or Lombok that you will arrive at the “must to do” Gili Islands (Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air)
The Gilis Islands
You’ll choose Trawangan for its festive and cosmopolitan life, Meno for lovers in search of a haven of peace or Air for its friendly atmosphere and easy exchange with the local population. As you will understand, everyone can find here its little paradise that suits him. Everyone agrees that the common point between the 3 islands is that it’s difficult to leave. The Gilis are an ideal departure point to get to know about diving and why not, taking your Open Water or a higher level certification if you are already a frequent visitor of the underwater life. Shark Point, Turtle Heaven, Meno wall, Simon’s Reef, Deep Turbo and much more are all dive sites that are worth to have a look in the region! Non-divers will find their happiness in snorkeling and will be eager to meet green turtles that are on the edge of the 3 islands.
The Gilis are also an opportunity to get far from pollution. Indeed, here the motor vehicles are prohibited and give way to bicycles and horses carts called “Cidomo”.
You too, try the island life and enjoy all marine activities they have to offer!
