WHY THIS TOUR?
Three islands with three different characters – and all within easy reach of Lombok. The Gili Islands are among the most sought-after excursion destination when Lombok is your base of exploration.
This tiny group of islands have steadily emerged as being alternative picture-perfect escapes from its larger Indonesian brothers, like Bali and Lombok. Lovers of the underwater world will be thrilled to see the life of three islands above and below the surface of a turquoise sea with white-sand beaches, fringed with palm trees?
08:00 - 17:00
Before we board our boat to sail off to the Gili Islands, the Pusuk Temple on Lombok itself is worth a visit. More known for its monkey population than its important spiritual representation, seeing these primates taking claim of the temple compound and the surrounding nature makes it a spectacle in its own right.
We move on to Teluk Kode Harbour, where our captain for the day waits with his trusted motorized vessel for a full day of Gili exploration. Depending on the weather and currents, the decision of which of these three islands with their own, rather unique appeal will be visited first is up to the captain, but rest assured that you will see them all. The largest of the three is Gili Trawangan (universally known as Gili T) with a more cosmopolitan vibe flowing around. With plenty of restaurants, bars and accommodation, it is a popular hang-out spot for those seeking a place for entertainment. Gili Air has the most local character and is often the hideaway for rest seekers as where Gili Meno is simply everything you want a bounty island to be.
On all of these three white/green pearls, you will have the chance to see the world below the ocean’s surface (snorkelling only) or lounge the day away under the palm trees. We only want to highlight that these islands have gained an international name and fame for their excellent snorkelling possibilities. Just go out there and indulge in what’s a true paradise for underwater lovers.
We leave these minuscule pieces of paradise behind us in the afternoon as we make our way back by boat and car to your Lombok resort, where we expect to arrive at around 5 pm.
