Gili Islands

Everything You Need to Know About Gili Islands

The Gili Islands are a group of three small islands located off the north-western shore of Bali’s neighbour, Lombok. Highly popular among divers, there are dive centres available on all three, namely Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air, and the waters around them boast rich tropical marine biodiversity and offer good visibility all year round. Collectively referred to as the ‘Gilis’, they are technically part of Lombok, but have become a much-loved optional itinerary for visitors to Bali, with easy and regular transfer services available.

Gili Trawangan has a good mix with quiet and serene beaches on the northern and western sides, and a multitude of dining and partying hotspots at restaurants and lively bars on the south. Gili Meno serves as an ultimate choice for an escape; overall discreet with beautifully barren beaches and a local village ban on late partying in place. Gili Air is easily Trawangan’s miniscule version, and usually completes one’s Gili island hopping experience. Plan your upcoming trip to the Gilis with our travel guide and choose from our collection of Gili Island hotels that suit your budget and preference.
