Gilli Islands

Known for stunning beaches, coral reefs and fantastic diving, this trio of islands offers wild scenery and a laid-back atmosphere, just off Lombok’s northwest coast.

The Gili Islands are a scenic archipelago made up of three separate islands, each with their own individual flair and attractions. During the 1980s and 1990s, the islands were popular with backpackers seeking beautiful coral reefs, stretches of white sandy beaches and relaxed island life. Today, find luxury resorts alongside the original backpacker hostels dotted over the islands, making the archipelago a laid-back destination for a range of budgets and interests.

The Gili Islands are made up of Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. Gili Air is located nearest to Lombok and features magnificent coral reefs, just within a short swim from the beach. Grab your snorkel and flippers to find a thriving underwater world, where you might spot reef sharks, manta rays and barracudas. Take a stroll around the island to see rural plots and locals tending to chickens, goats and cows.

Gili Meno, the middle island is the smallest and least developed of the three. Check out turtle sanctuaries to see where green and loggerhead turtle eggs are hatched. The baby turtles are kept for a few months before they are released into the sea.

Gili Trawangan is the furthest island from Lombok and features a lively party scene. Check out the island’s beachside bars or party all night under the light of the moon at the beach. Gili Trawangan does have a more relaxed side, however, within the lavish resorts and villas scattered across the island.

Each island features great opportunities for snorkelling and diving. Book a tour or hire equipment and a guide at the dive operator offices located on each of the islands. Motorised vehicles don’t operate on the Gili Islands, but it’s easy to get around by foot, bike or horse-drawn cart known as a cidomo. Gili means “small islands” and it is easy to cover any of the islands by foot in less than two hours.

Reach Gili Islands from Lombok via charter boat from Bangsal Harbour or Senggigi Beach. Speedboats service the islands directly from Bali.

            Incredible location, right on the beach. Restaurant was brilliant, with a great variety of foods to choose from. Villas were lovely. Relatively basic accommodation but on a tiny island and for the price we paid we couldn't have asked for anything more. Would definitely recommend and return.
