North of Gili Gede, Gili Layar is a smaller, South West Lombok gem in the calm sea. It is intimate and still virgin territory, ripe for experiencing before the crowds discover it. Explore a peaceful island made for swimming in clear turquoise water, snorkeling among multi-hued coral, or strolling with nothing but grazing cows for company. The value of Gili Layar is sealed by fabulous views from the hills over the beautiful forest. Gili Layar also enjoys proximity to Desert Point on Lombok, great for any surfers who wish to try their luck on some top-class breaks.
