Gili Air Island, Lombok
(4.8/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Go snorkling, surfing, or turtle-spotting at Gili Air Island, popular for its tropical scenery and laid-back atmosphere. No motor vehicles are allowed on the island, giving it an air of calm that is sometimes missing in other parts of Indonesia. Though horseback tours are offered, you might want to consider an alternative as some visitors have reported abuse of the animals by local guides. Walking the circumference of the island takes about two and a half hours, but be sure to pack supplies as some areas are still quite wild--you might find yourself half an hour from the nearest shop or restaurant.

  • Amazing island, no cars, no noisy motorbikes (only electric), you can go walking everywhere, enjoy the nice beaches, the sunsets, also great for snorkeling... Live bands playing at nights, mango trees...  more »
  • probably the best mix among the three gilis of the nort west... if you want to relax, but want to have some bars and restaurants (you are on holiday, right?!), this is the right island..
