Three perfect coral islands; Gili Air, Gili meno, Gili Trawangan, fringed with white sands and swaying palm trees, lay in the sparkling ocean just a short hop from the north-west coast of Lombok. For many years the Gili’s have attracted visitors from around the world for their pristine waters, great and snorkeling opportunities, and laid-back charm.
The word “Gili” actually means “small island”, (making “island” in the title redundant), and so these islands have come to be known as “The Gili’s by travelers, who have long considered the Gili’s to be at least equal to the appeal of Thailand and Indian’s south coast.
Over the past decade, each of the three islands has developed a unique personality or style, catering to different types of holiday makers and travelers. Although the Gili’s were previously popular mainly with backpackers, word has gotten around and the Gili’s now attract a diverse range of visitors: serious diving enthusiasts, sun-seekers, singles, families and couples of all ages find something to attract them to the Gili’s.
Three small islands (Gili Air, Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno) surrounded by white sandy beaches North-West of Lombok. Transportation is provided by small, quaint horse carts and bicycles. About one hour from Senggigi by car and boat.
Gili Air :
Gili Air is a charming, layed back island with white sandy beaches. It is ideal for swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing or for a quiet honeymoon or just for anybody who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern world
Gili Meno :
Gili Meno is the middle and smallest island of the three, with the lowest population. It is not as developed as Trawangan or Air, but has its own special tranquil style. The pace is a much slower, with the laid-back charm of a true castaway tropical island experience. Small hotels and basic beachside huts provide accommodation for those seeking a peaceful place in the sun, with unpopulated beaches, clean waters and quiet walks under the star-filled skies at night.
The biggest islands is also called “Party-Island”. You can join a party every night but there are also hide-aways. It is a magical islands, which mixes up market accommodation and restaurants with atmosphere appealing to backpackers as well.
