Gili Air Island, Lombok
(5/5 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.

  • this island offers a mix between the 2 neighboring island. it was like Gili T on the beach, but when you walk to the centre of the island it was like Gili M. but the beach here was good too like white...  more »
