Explore Gili Island
Forming an archipelago with three islands, Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air, the Gili Islands can only be described as paradise in Indonesia. Originally discovered on the tourist trail by backpackers, a holiday to Gili Islands is now about allure, charm and fascination. Explore the area by hiring a bicycle, or take a horse drawn carriage, known as a cidomo, along roads that do not have a car or motorbike in sight, complimenting the tranquil vibe.
Why a Gili Island Holiday?
Each island offers a different way of life to its visitors. Spend some time on Gili Meno and you will feel its deserted charm. It’s the island to choose if you’d like to find a secluded getaway with your loved one, spending your days lazing in a hammock or on the beach together.
Gili Air offers visitors a more traditional and rural island experience. It has some great opportunities to catch some waves off some almost completely deserted beaches. Alternatively Lombok offers more brilliant surf for beginners and experts alike.
Gili Trawangan is the largest and busiest of the three islands and so is perhaps a more attractive choice for families and groups. Not only does it offer activities, such as kayaking and horse riding to keep everyone entertained during the day but there are also plenty of evening barbecues and drinks to be had on the beach once the sun goes down.
One of the main reasons people tend to take a holiday to Gili Island is for its phenomenal underwater worlds. With over 3500 species of sea life, and more than 20 dive spots between the three islands, you can catch sight of fan corals, angel fish, turtles, sharks and many more.
