Gili Air Island, Lombok

4.7
#8 of 12 in Nature in Lombok
Island Nature / Park
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.

Where to stay in Senggigi

Senggigi offers several types of accommodations to suit different needs, from budget-friendly hotels in prime locations by the beach, to midrange central lodgings right next to entertainments and amenities. Places to stay lie spread out along the coastline, so book ahead of time in order to avoid hauling things back and forth in search of the perfect accommodations. Do note, however, that many restaurants offer free car rides to and from lodgings, and taxi rides are very inexpensive. Light sleepers: avoid basing yourself by the mosque, as the early morning prayer calls are very audible.
