Lombok is another leading tourist destination in Indonesia after Bali. It is not surprising that visits to the Thousand Mosques Island are never empty. Generally, people going to Lombok will go to the 3 gili—small islands, namely Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air (water means water). The last one has a variety of uniqueness that makes it the reason to go to Gili Air.
Attractive Natural Scenery
One of the reasons to go to Gili Air is the beautiful scenery. Located in Gili Indah Village, Pemenang District, North Lombok, this mini island is located at the eastern end of the three dykes (dyke) as mentioned above. Here, you can enjoy a calm beach atmosphere, but it's not too quiet either. You can get around this mini island by taking a walk to enjoy the fine and clean white sand. Beach lovers will feel at home in this place, because the atmosphere is so pleasant with the gentle breeze and the waves, which are also quite 'relaxing'. Interestingly, on the beach you can also enjoy the beautiful view of the mangrove forest.
Perfect for relaxation
More than that, among the reasons to go to Gili Air is for relaxation because of its quiet location. Compared to Gili Trawangan, which is full of facilities and crowds, this island is quieter. However, compared to Gili Meno which is so quite this island is still more 'alive'. There are restaurants and cafes that you can visit when you want to fill your stomach while relaxing.
Underwater Tourism Paradise
Meanwhile, the next reason for going to Gili Air is 'underwater tourism paradise'. If you like water sports, such as diving, you will be very happy in this place. There are a number of spots to see underwater beauty, such as Frogfish point, Air Wall, Malang Reef, Air Slope, and Segaluh. Then, under the waters of this dyke, you will find a variety of marine life, ranging from coral reefs of various shapes to colorful fish. The good news is, you can also get snorkel packages in Lombok from Gotravela Indonesia. No need to worry if you are not good at swimming or diving, because there are also guides to help beginners.
One more thing, the reason for going to Gili Air is easy access. You can use a fast boat from Bangsal Lombok Harbor (if you are from Lombok Island). Apart from that, if you are from Bali, there are also several ports to cross to the Gili Islands. Of course, with Gotravela Indonesia, you have many choices between Bali to Gili Islands fast boat tickets to choose from.
