I went for the first time in the Gili Islands in 2018. I did not see the 3 islands but I saw enough to give you some indications of what I liked and what liked less.

The Gili Islands, located off the northwest coast of Lombok in Indonesia, are a tropical paradise renowned for their stunning beauty, vibrant marine life, and laid-back atmosphere. Comprising three main islands – Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air – these idyllic islets are a haven for travelers seeking a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

One of the most remarkable features of the Gili Islands is their pristine beaches with powdery white sand and crystal-clear waters that are perfect for snorkeling and diving. The underwater world is indeed a kaleidoscope of colorful coral reefs, sea turtles, and diverse marine species, making it a hotspot for aquatic enthusiasts.

These islands have consciously embraced eco-friendly and sustainable practices, with restrictions on motorized vehicles, a ban on single-use plastics, and the promotion of renewable energy sources. All these efforts help preserve the natural beauty that has made the Gili Islands a beloved destination for eco-conscious travelers.

Whether you seek adventure or relaxation, the Gili Islands offer a little piece of paradise that’s hard to resist. With their picturesque landscapes and a commitment to sustainability, they remain a top destination for those in search of an authentic island experience in Indonesia.
