GILI ISLANDS • INDONESIA
Gili Air starts the string of three North West Gilis, nearest the Lombok mainland. Smaller and more refined than Trawangan, the pace of life is slow, with a close-knit community atmosphere. Water clarity is superb, with reefs great for snorkeling and diving. Gili Air Wall has a 24-meter drop with lionfish, leaf scorpionfish and seahorses to search for. Circumnavigate the island by bicycle, ride through its interior coconut farm forests, or if you prefer beach-lounge life, cool ocean breezes and fresh seafood, Gili Air has all the alabaster sands you could wish for.
