Gili Islands are the four islands which feature superb, white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, spectacular coral reefs, and the best snorkeling and diving to be found anywhere on Bali and Lombok. Visitors from all over the world are attracted to the simple pleasures of sun, snorkeling, diving, beautiful beaches, and socializing. The absence of cars, motorcycles, and hawkers adds greatly to the leisure of staying on the Gilis – although there is now a wide range of accommodation available, the islands have maintained the lazy rustic charms of a tropical paradise.
These islands are Gili Air, Gili Meno, Gili Trawangan and Gili Nanggu located just off the northwest coast of Lombok Island. These Islands are rapidly becoming one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Bali Island and Lombok Island.
