Gili Air Island, Lombok

(4.7/5 based on 35+ 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.

  • Spent 6 days at this beautiful Paradise Island Tranquillity, the environment and stress free everyday life here can get anyone to thrive as the fish in the water. The whole island is to go around for approximately one hour. At the top of the island, the water is crystal clear and you can look over at the neighboring Island Gili Meno. We had the chance to swim with a number of large sea turtles and beautiful rainbow colored fish between the Islands. Would love to go back to this little paradise in the future!

  • Went to Gili air to make snorkel and enjoy of your tranquility, beautiful beaches, but not good for the bathroom. Still a good place to get lost.
