Gili Air Island, Lombok

4.0
#8 of 26 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 Pemenang journey website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The beach here pretty good, the water is blue. While touring in the gilis, we were snorkling and packed in gili air. For snorkling, breathtaking view down its less nice, its many died, the water is murky.

  • Take the kids looked like coming. Gili trawangan is the young people playing good ... And this close to snorkeling in Australia.

  • Paradise ... every detail is impressive after Bali. White beaches, blue water, lack of bikes and bothersome Balinese people. Corner of calm and tranquility is the Gili Islands. Visit there-a must for travelling in Indonesia.

  • Good snorkeling. A lot of destroyed coral, but local dive schools make an effort to replant. Very relax, quite green. Bike only :) Has some great restaurants from small cheap warung to more international. You can hear the mosque from 4.45 am probably from every accommodation, but it’s not so loud as Trawangan. My favorite Gili.
  • No motorcycle, fresh air🌴🌲, delicious food and beverage🥗🍕🍚🍾🥂🍻🍹🍸🍷, sand 🏖🏝⛱, nice people!! Wonderfull Indonesia 🇮🇩
  • Landing here gave me a feel of how the explorers of yesteryears might have dicsovered the remote yet densely populated islands bursting with local culture. This island has it's own character. So small that it can be covered in an hour on a bicycle. Great outlets and dive shops. Do visit the few jewellery and trinket shops.
  • The best Gili island. Beautiful scenery and a great choice of restaurants, but less busy than the others.
  • A small paradise in North Lombok. Less crowded than Gili Trawangan.
