Great alternative to expensive Bali - extremely clean water to freedive

This was my first trip to Asia, so I marked it as 4 stars as it is difficult to compare. However, there is something fantastic in this place, even in Ramandam. Snorkelling trip is... read more

Trying to get to the Gili Islands from Bali is NOT the easiest or clearest. Turns out here are 3 options. 1-fast boat from Padang bai or abad harbours (approx 2hours....) 2- flying from Lombok, or 3 - public ferry (cheapest and longest duration). We did LOADS of research, asking Balinese locals, friends,trip advisor and everything in between and we... More

Perfect bounty island. East Side is stil pretty quiet while the west Side is crowded. Atmosphere is Unique with only horse and carriages and bikes. Not a single engineer heard in 6 days. Riding à bike along the beachroad with only moonlight is à Unique experience. Brings you back in times you only heard of. The only question is for... More

These islands might have been nice over a decade a ago, when they were still quiet and peaceful. Today the main island especially is almost completely built up with bars and restaurants with aggressive touts trying to sell overpriced food, souvenirs and booze to backpackers. Getting to the beach can be difficult. Snorkeling is okay but nothing special. I.e.: If... More

Beautiful islands full of horse carriages. The horses pulling the carriages are very small (like ponny) and although there is one horse in each carriage, they are carrying 4-5 people at once and the horses are waiting hours under the hot sun without water.

Everything is perfect. A lot of nice resort. The beach is comfort for sunbathing or just swimming. A lot of spot for diving or just snorkling. We can ride a cidomo or bicycle to traveling in the island. There is no engine vehicle that makes the air is so fresh.

I had many expectations about my recent trip to the Gilis! It turned out that these paradise islands are getting completely destroyed by the wild development of massive tourist industry. The worst case is the horse business. Local horses and ponies are used to carry overweight people and luggage on carriage, sometimes up to ten times their own weight, to... More

This was my first trip to Asia, so I marked it as 4 stars as it is difficult to compare. However, there is something fantastic in this place, even in Ramandam. Snorkelling trip is the must-do activity. It lasts for 3-4 hours (with some food-stop at one of Gili Islands). Visibility is breath taking, up to 50meters. You can spot... More

This island is calmer than its overly touristed neighbour gili trawangan! There is a calmer nightlife here and better beaches with more scenic romantic places to see!

Gili Islands are great place to visit for folks who want to snorkel just of the beach and experience awesome marine life. There is a healthy population of turtles, each time I went out snorkeling in shallows or deep I saw it and once it was few inches from me!!. Best place to snorkel is south west side of Gili... More
