Gili Air is every romantic’s dream of paradise. This island is a popular honeymoon destination, it’s much quieter than the other Gilli islands and equally as beautiful.
Gili Air is where you can find luxury and a more upscale scene among the 3 Gili Islands, and it’s often considered the alternative holiday island escape after the more popular Gili Trawangan. It has a great combination of white sand and crystal clear waters that are favourited by divers and snorkelers, as well as a good complementing range of shops, beach bars, small seaside cafes, dive shops and a variety of accommodation options, which you can find inland and around its coastline.
Gili Meno is ideal for those looking for balance, with fantastic snorkeling spots, pristine beaches and mouthwatering food.
Gili Meno is the most relaxing of the 3 Gili Islands. Meno truly sets itself apart from the other two islands bordering it, both in terms of features and characteristics. It offers more preserved nature, with very low-key nightlife thanks to a local island village administrative ruling that puts a ban on late night music. This is a blessing for travellers wanting a more quiet and laidback island retreat compared to the much established Gili Trawangan island and its smaller ‘twin’, Gili Air.
Gili islands are perfect for exploring the underwater world. Made up of three islands each one caters to your interests, Gilli Trawangan knows how to celebrate new moons and welcome travels from across the globe.
Gili Trawangan is the largest and most popular of the 3 Gilis, thanks to its well-established infrastructure that preceded the other two islands in the group: Meno and Air. Therefore, if you’re a first-timer, you can opt for Trawangan as your first ‘landing point’, where you can enjoy most of the action. It has the best range of facilities among the three islands, with a larger land size and a good mixture of hotels, bars and restaurants, catering to different styles and preferences.
Explore the Coastal paths around Nusa Lembongan, by foot or bike or head to the Mangrove forests, seaweed farms before relaxing on tranquil beaches like Jungut Batu and Dream Beach. There’s much you can see and do while on Nusa Lembongan, including a collection of pristine beaches with coarse white sand, soaring cliff viewpoints, and sea views that can get very idyllic at sunset, overlooking the outline of Bali’s highest peak, Mount Agung, on the horizon. Other land attractions include a mysterious underground house, lush mangrove forests, and seafood farming villages that retain their old ways.
Nusa Penida is the perfect place to escape the crowds for a while and truly relax in authenticIndonesia. With friendly locals, delicious food and warm waters to watch the amazing sunsets.
Nusa Penida measures over 200 sq km – significantly larger than the popular Nusa Lembongan and its easily accessible sister island, Nusa Ceningan. Lesser-travelled by visitors compared to the other two, Nusa Penida also features a very limited number of hotels and tourist features. Nevertheless, what it lacks in infrastructure, it makes up for with its unspoiled natural beauty and rare cultural highlights.
Lombok is much more than a surfers paradise; with spectacular mountains serving as a back drop to green land and blue skies, the beaches are not the only picturesque destinations of this beautiful island.
Lombok is the most popular destination in Nusa Tenaggara – a province in South Central Indonesia. Visitors head here for both underwater and on-land exploration. Situated east of Bali, it can be accessed by plane or boat. The island consists of virginal sandy beaches and a hilly terrain, fringed by mesmerizing azure shores, making it a favourite destination for trekking, surfing and beach lounging.
