Gili Air Island, Lombok

#5 of 27 in Nature in Lombok
Go snorkling, surfing, or turtle-spotting at Gili Air Island, popular for its tropical scenery and laid-back atmosphere. No motor vehicles are allowed on the island, giving it an air of calm that is sometimes missing in other parts of Indonesia. Though horseback tours are offered, you might want to consider an alternative as some visitors have reported abuse of the animals by local guides. Walking the circumference of the island takes about two and a half hours, but be sure to pack supplies as some areas are still quite wild--you might find yourself half an hour from the nearest shop or restaurant.

  • Love Gili Air. People are friendly and genuine. Beautiful waters and food is amazing!! The island has fully recovered from the recent earthquake and many tourists are back. Gili Air looks awesome rebuilt and better than ever. Happy to see everyone going about business as usual.
  • What a gem! On Gili Air we found: “Flowers and Fire” Yoga garden, a retreat of calm and delight. Our hosts were warm and helpful. The coffee equalled the best in Sydney. Everything was aesthetically pleasing and so comfortable—fans and air conditioning in all the rooms. The Yoga studios, the salas, of which there were two, were amazing. The treetop one fantastic. For yoga practitioners, prepare for some of the best teaching anywhere. Do not miss this experience of heaven in Gili Air! Ricki Randall
