Great day. Get your boatman to head to Turtle point, a bit further out of Gili Meno. Only one thing spoiled the day. The sea lice were horrific and I look like I have measles...the itch is unbearable. Make sure you come to Lombok equipped with calamine lotion or something like that as back-up. Lunch at Villa Karang on Gili... More

We went on one day boat trip from Sengigi. Got off at Trawangan as first stop. It is full of restaurants and hotels and very crowded. Second stop at Gili Meno wass much better. It was peaceful and quite. Beautiful beaches. Wished we could stay longer. Great snorkeling.

We had an idyllic day with Memet from Lombok Travel. They picked us up from the Lombok wharf in a lovely well air-conditioned van. Memet's English was excellent and he was so friendly with a great sense of humour. They fitted us with our snorkling gear and we transferred into a gorgeous traditional Indonesian boat and floated over the beautiful... More

Meno was my favorite , no cars ,no motorbikes just horses and bicycles.. A very nice change form Kuta I must say.. Walking around the island.. The locals are suoer friendly and you feel very safe.. We went during ramadan and the singing from the mosque at dusk and dawn just added to the magic of this island.. Gili Trawangan... More

We have visited gili air and gili meno many times before and decided to stay at gili air this time. Really relaxing and worth a visit.

Nice beaches, okay corals a short swim from the beaches (I get the impression they are in repair), nice people, plenty of accommodation in a wide range of prices, charming interior paths through farms, and best of all - no cars or motorbikes! Winds do come up and tides run very strongly, so adjust any water-based sport accordingly - expect... More

The beach is simply amazing. Crystal clear. Gili Trawangan was the best in comparison to gili air or gili meno. The bicycle ride was fun and there were lots of fishes as you snorkel around the island. Never will I forget this island.
