The Gili Islands

Off the North West coast of Lombok, about 20 km north of Senggigi, you can find the famous trio of islands known as “THE GILIS”: GILI AIR, GILI MENO, and GILI TRAWANGAN. All have spectacular white sandy beaches, sparkling blue waters and are encircled by beautiful Coral Reefs containing very rare blue coral and thousands of species of marine life. Snorkellers and divers flock to these islands to indulge in an under water fantasy.
Off the south west coast of Lombok (Sekotong Area), about one hour drive from Mataram, the capital city of West Nusa Tenggara, you can find some other Gili Islands such Gili Nanggu, Gili Sudak, Gili Tangkong and Gili Gede. There are a lot of small islands in this area. All of these islands have beautiful under water marine life, clear, white sand and gorgeous beaches.  They are ideal places for sunbathing, snorkeling, feeding fish and of course, peacefully relaxing!
