Beautiful and hot

Took a boat out with our own crew and snorkelled. Delighted to see turtle and abundant coloured fish. Keep an eye out for boats so you don't get accidentally hit. We were always... read more

Be careful, quack doctor at Island Clinic Centre. We went to this clinic and the doctor did not diagnosed that my partner had dengue fever, although we highly suspected it (fever, bone aching and headache) and asked him to do a test. He did a test that we figured out later was only for malaria. He explained that dengue fever... More

Where to start, horrid little place, constant hassle from sellers and business owners, very over priced compared to the rest of Indonesia, then for a so called Muslim island with zero tolerance to drugs they are openly sold and taken through out the island, (when I got of the boat the first thing I was offered was drugs, not transport...

Nice beach in some parts but it ends there. The island is filthy, covered in litter. The most awful and upsetting thing is the horse cruelty. No water no food just cruel! People need to stop going here! We also found the locals to be rude! Service charge added to absolutely everything and never once did we get good service!... More

I spent three nights on Gili T- the island is quite nice, although there's lots of rubbish everywhere and the central part is pretty seedy (unless you're here to party, which in that case, it's perfect). There are some nice beach areas but like others have said, the water is very shallow and there's a lot of coral, which can... More

Took a boat out with our own crew and snorkelled. Delighted to see turtle and abundant coloured fish. Keep an eye out for boats so you don't get accidentally hit. We were always fine and boat captains seem to be aware but there seems to be no areas marked off for snorkelled only. Best beaches in Indonesia are here. They... More

It's ok if you like dirty place and garbage everywhere. I was diving here and that was nice but the island itself is really dirty and there's not much to do either. Just some bars and restaurants, dust, garbage and overpriced souvenirs.

You can read tons of reviews about Gili Islands. Mostly negative about trash and ponny cars. I have been 2 years at Indonesia, that's why I fully understand mentality of this country. What you can see there is just their style of life. But if you will expect these conditions, then you can fully see hidden paradice inside. Nice beaches... More

The Gili Islands were not worthed visiting, the staff everywhere are arogant, no value for money at all. Tourists visit the islands as they are close to Bali but I would recommend to stay in Bali. The cost is high, the travel, accomodation, food, so there is no value at all to go there. It is dirty, very hot, no... More

We went to gili on a day trip. The island is beautiful and you can choose to ride a bicycle around it for 3 dollars/hr or take a horse ride. There are many cafes to choose from. However activities there are limited. Most of the vendors there offer snorkelling trips or scuba diving. The trip back to bali from gili... More

I was in the Gili islands for a week and I will never ever be back, not until the 'Gili ponies' are a thing of the past. I've never seen such horrendous cruelty, the ponies were worked all day and night. I absolutely ruined my time in the Gili islands. The ponies were tiny, bony and covered in cuts and... More
