Gili Islands BBQ Cruise with Snorkelling
Gili Islands BBQ Cruise
Explore the spectacular underwater life in the clear, turquoise waters around
the Gili Islands. Snorkel above beautiful underwater statues, swim
with turtles and feast on a delicious barbecue lunch.
WHY THIS TOUR?
Known for their serenity due to the absence of any motorised transport, the Gili Islands are a group of three islands near the northwest coast of Lombok. Gili Trawangan is the largest and most popular and cosmopolitan of the three islands.
The beaches on Gili Air are endless and the vibe is quieter, while Gili Meno is the smallest and most traditional with rustic villages. All the islands are fringed by vibrant coral reefs, crystal clear water, sandy beaches and palm trees. Here you can really slow down to a languid pace of life, soak up the sun, swim in the translucent waters and view the exotic marine life.
09:00 - 13:30
In the morning, you will be collected from your hotel on Gili Trawangan and taken to the boat, ready for a day spent exploring the best snorkelling sites around Gili Meno, Gili Air and Gili Trawangan. The crystal-clear waters are dotted with excellent snorkelling sites, most of which offer wonderful visibility throughout the year. Underneath the waves are tropical coral gardens teeming with biodiversity.
Jump into the calm and azure waters at Gili Meno and snorkel in one of the most unique areas, home to famed underwater statues. Hauntingly beautiful, these 48 life-size sculptures depict embracing figures that symbolise life and continuity. Continue to Turtle Point where you have the chance to swim with friendly sea turtles.
It’s then time to relax and chill out for a while with a stop on Gili Meno’s famous white sand beaches.
The boat then cruises over to the reefs around Gili Air for more snorkelling among a myriad of colourful, tropical fish. A delicious barbecue lunch cooked fresh on board will be waiting for you once you get out of the warm water. As you eat, enjoy chatting with the other people on the boat, take in the breathtaking views and listen to some laidback tunes.
At the end of the tour, the boat will cruise back to Gili Trawangan.
