Gili Islands, Lombok

3.6
#3 of 26 in Nature in Lombok
Visit Gili Islands, a set of three islands just off the coast with unspoiled landscape. With no automobiles allowed on the islands, they possess a castaway charm. Spend time on the beach, or take a trip out into the surrounding waters for some of the most popular and biologically diverse dive sites in the region. Take a day tour of the three islands to enjoy their individual vibes and collective charm before spending the evening in a bar watching the sunset over a glass of ice cold beer. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Gili Islands and many more Senggigi attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Senggigi road trip website .

  • Stay away from these islands! We were in bali, we reached Gili t. with fast boat in the middle of a sea mossissimo with security conditions indecent (co pilot who will have had 16 years smoked aft sitting on barrels of gasoline ...), once landed you will be affected by coaxing prayer shouted the voice shot from the great speakers of the great mosque ... that if you go in the Ramadan period will keep you company from 3 am!!! Oh well you can relax on the beach provided you have appropriate shoes to the rocks as everything is littered with dead corals and sharp (the island has many private clinics for medication ...) The water is to be transparent but Dears in Sicily and Sardinia is much much better! then drop by the beach you may want to go for a ride in horse-drawn carts characteristic anorexic slobbing Carroll obviously suffering. Then at least before going back to sleep (remember that the prayers ended at midnight and resume at 3:00 am) a dinner at European prices with Indonesian hygiene you leverage anybody, go early though before kids get stoned and filled of vomiting the lerc ioSi lanes of sand. Beware also when they finally depart from this place: the boats are never on time and if there's roughest not depart. We had to get all the last second flight from lombok private transfer with all consequences. Ultimately don't go unless absolutely necessary.

  • Loved the island, been here 3 years ago, and now we canceled our upcoming trip because of the volcano. Food is nice, bicycles to rent, nice people, clear blue water, and fishing trip too!
  • Nice to not see cars although electric scooters seem to be allowed. All islands are still very busy with backpackers, not a romantic place. Good for drinks at anytime of day.
  • amazing place to go..really beautiful coral beaches also really good spot to scuba dive all day every day.
  • Great place to visit. It's not all about diving and snorkeling. There is plenty to do, eat and drink. There are turtles to swim with, tracks to hike and corners of islands to explore.
  • Great if you want to hang back and relax and not do too much after a holiday full of activity.

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.
