Gili Air Island, Lombok

4.0
#8 of 12 in Nature in Lombok
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. Put Gili Air Island into our Senggigi journey website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The island is easily accessible from Bangsal if you are staying in Lombok. Not to take tours around because they increase the price while locally cost much less. Small turns on foot and with a couple of beaches Maldives style of this world

  • In Gili Air I found peace and silence. No cars, not too many loud bars in the night, less touristic than Gili Tragawan, local people are very friendly and the atmosphere is still magical, highly recommended if you just want to relax completely and immerse in nature and the local culture.
  • The best of the Gili's. On this island you can both relax or enjoy a little party and drinks at some bars. Great sunset and great snorkelling tours around the gili's!
  • Best place to stay for relaxation and good restaurants. Much better than Gili-T for couples and peace seekers.
  • I love Gili! The dive sites are awesome and the island is just lovely. 😚😚😚😚😚🐟🏊☉🍽🍺⛵
  • Way more calm relaxing and cozy island than Gili Trawangan. Here you can find cheap accommodation nice sunset and even nightlife if needed

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.
