Gili Islands - Paradise in three variations
|Beach on Gili Air - Lombok|
You have to consider a little higher budget on these islands then for other places in Indonesia if you want to get the full program like a hotel room with western standard, seat toilet, view on the beach and AC. But

One main “street” goes around the island, you can find hotels all the way around. Jogging it takes you about 45min, which is totally worth getting up at 5 am. to enjoy the sunrise and do your work out. You can find many people doing sports and yoga welcoming the day. Also, in the early morning the view on the volcanoes Agung (Bali) and Rinjani (Lombok) are usually clear. But that is only the beginning. The island offers a lot of
sport and fun activities, such as diving,
snorkeling, stand up paddling, kite surfing etc.. Trips to other
islands or trekking to Rinjani are available too (see our post about
the Rinjani trek).

We decided to relax and enjoy – fresh seafood, delicious drinks, nice conversations with travelers, the perfect view of the stars… A perfect place for the touristy part of your journey across Indonesia.
