The Gili Islands are made up of 3 very small islands just off the north west coast of Lombok – Gili Meno, Gili Air, and perhaps the most popular, Gili Trawangan (Gili T). Characterized by white-sand beaches fringed with palm trees, they’re known for their coral reefs just offshore. With no motorized transportation on the islands, it makes a visit to the Gili Islands quite unique. All three offer the same island activities such as snorkeling, diving and paddle boarding.
- Gili Trawangan is by far the most cosmopolitan with its vibrant bar & party scene and its beaches lined with different accommodation and eating options. Known as the party island, it certainly has a sizzling beach night life.These islands are popular tourist destinations for tourists. Each island has several small resorts, usually consisting of a collection of tourist huts, a small pool and a restaurant. Most of the local population lives on Trawangan in the town that runs along its east side inland (which is also where the latest developments took place). Car and motorized vehicle traffic is prohibited on the islands by local regulations, thus the preferred method of transportation is by foot and bicycle or horse-drawn carts called cidomo. Scuba and free diving in and around the Gili Islands are also popular for their abundance of marine life and interesting coral formations. The most famous dive spots are Shark point, Manta point and Simon’s reef.
