The Three Gili Islands

Highlights

  • Soak up the sun on the three tiny but idyllic Gili Islands.
  • Travel in traditional island-style on a horse-drawn cart.
  • Snorkel and swim to check out the colourful underwater world

In the morning transfer from your hotel to the harbour, and then board a local boat.

Sit back and relax for the 30 minute cruise over to the Gili Islands, a group of 3 tiny islands near the coast of northwest Lombok. Characterised by sandy beaches fringed with palm trees, they are known for their serenity due to the absence of any motorised transport. Stop first at Gili Trawangan, the largest and most popular of the three islands. The island is known for its breathtaking beaches and snorkelling sites. Spend some time on the beach relaxing, swimming and snorkelling. If you prefer to explore the island this can be done by foot or renting out a bicycle. Or why not hop onto the back of a local horse drawn cart and enjoy the islands traditional mode of transport.

Venture into the interior of the island to see some of the villages and fishing communities. From Gili Trawangan, sail to Gili Meno, the smallest and the quietest of the three Gilis. Home to crystal clear water full of coral and colourful fish, this is the ideal place to snorkel and swim. The final stop is at Gili Air where you can spend the remainder of the afternoon on the beach. Sail back to the harbour and then transfer back to hotel.
