Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air are three islands off the coast of Lombok to which you can escape for a few days and make the most of your relaxing holiday.
Motor vehicles are prohibited on the Gili Islands, which is great because you can immerse yourself completely in nature and fully enjoy the beaches without having to deal with pollution and the noise of cars. To get around, I walked a lot and I also hired a bike one afternoon. However, you can also take a horse-drawn carriage, known as a "cidomo".
Fans of scuba diving will be delighted: there are more than sixteen sites around the Gili Islands and the seabeds are extremely varied. Equipped with flippers, a mask and a snorkel, I was able to observe shoals of multicoloured fish and swim next to turtles, which is an experience that I will definitely not forget!
These are the The Gili islands : Gili Meno, Gili Air and Gili Trawagan. Three little islands overlooked by the big tours of Indonesia, only accessible by boat.
I strongly recommend that tourists on a trip to Indonesia go to the Gili islands and mainly to Gili Meno , which has neither electricity nor cars and where you go about on foot or by donkey cart. The evening walk, when you go across the island to watch the sunset on the water while you sip a beer, brings the entire Gili Meno population together.
The landscape of these islands is postcard pretty: deserted beaches with fine sand, turquoise water and bungalows on stilts facing the sea. You do not notice time passing and that is such a good feeling.
