Gili islands are the most famous for the tourism destination. There are 3 small island such as Gili Trawangan, Gili Air, and Gili Meno. Gili Trawangan is the most famous of the three Gili Islands, situated furthest from the mainland. It is also the largest island, complete with a small hill at its southern end. Gili Trawangan is known as the party island thanks to the many wild parties held at its bars and restaurants. As with all of the Gili Islands, there is no motorised transport on Gili Trawangan, just cidomo (horse and cart) transport and plenty of bicycles available for rent. The walk around Gili Trawangan takes anything from 90 minutes to all day, depending on your pace. Electricity is generator supplied and fresh water is brought in by boat. Gili Trawangan is the island where you will find the widest range of activities, including some superb spa facilities, a horse riding stables, sea kayaks for rent, and what claims to be the smallest public cinema in the world, where you can laze on floor cushions and watch newly-released movies. There is good snorkeling just off the shore with waters that teem with a still abundant variety of tropical fish species. Strong currents are sometimes a bother, especially in the strait with neighbouring Gili Meno. Further out are vast gardens of coral, regarded as one of the best dive spots in Lombok, particularly Shark Point to the east of the island, which is home to white tip reef sharks, green and hawksbill turtles, eels, hard and soft corals, and a fascinating array of marine life.
Gili Air is the island closest to the Lombok mainland and the most easily accessed of the three Gili Islands. With about 1000 local residents, Gili Air has the largest local population of the three, many of its residents being Bugis sailors from Sulawesi who settled there many years ago establishing coconut plantations and expanding the fishing activities. Gili Air therefore combines the charm of a paradise tropical island with easy access to the people and the culture that has made Lombok so special. Many of the older generation here still make their living as boatmen, fisherman and coconut farmers.
Gili Meno is the middle and smallest island of the three Gili Islands. Measuring just two kilometres in length and one kilometre wide, it is possible to walk around it in less than two hours. It also has the lowest population (just a few hundred residents) mainly concentrated in the centre. Gili Meno is not as developed as Gili T or Gili Air and the pace is much slower, uncomplicated, peaceful and inexpensive. This Robinson Crusoe island is retreat from the world without motorbikes, cars or dogs. The only forms of transport are bicycles, cidomo (a horse-drawn cart), and boats for getting from one island to another. There is no fresh water, so most of the hotels and bungalows have saline water in the showers, although a certain amount of fresh water is imported daily. Electricity is supplied by generators. Not so many tourists come to Gili Meno, as compared to Gili Trawangan and Gili Air, because there is a much smaller choice of accommodation here. Small rustic hotels and basic beachside huts provide shelter for would-be castaways and honeymooners who travel here in search of paradise, tranquillity, nature, simplicity, uncrowded beaches, crystal clear waters and quiet walks under star-filled skies.
