Gilli trawangan is definately the busiest of the three islands. It us definately the party party island for the young ones and young at heart. The beaches are lovely with plenty of snorkeling and surfing. Hire a bike you can ride around it in an hour. Definately the busiest of the three. Meno is very quite a little bit too... More

We went to Gili Nanggu! This is in the south of Lombok and it is fantastic, hardly any tourists unlike the main Gilis , white sand and great snorkelling without having to worry about too many people. We then island hopped to other little islands for snorkelling and again it was great. Obviously you have to check the tide times... More

Day trip to Gili Air. Hassled all the time for various things like parking, taxi, horse drawn taxi, boat trips, snorkeling, hire small bikes, hire big bikes, walk, see turtles, don't see turtles... We're tourists, they're locals and their objective is to get as much money out of us as they can before someone else does and then move on... More

An awesome experience - islands where motors are not allowed - no cars, motorbikes, scooters. How can you not love it? Beautiful beaches! Excellent bars and restaurants! Great food! This is the place to go if you're visiting Lombok and/or Bali. You won't regret it!

Worst of all is to see the mistreating of the horses dragging around huge loads of tourists and building material! The water is clear and some of the beaches are very nice but over all the Island (Gili Air) is dirty and crowded. We've heard that the snorkeling should be awesome so we hope that it can compensate our disappointment.

When looking out over The beaches, there is nothing wrong with them but not At all At The level i had in my head (ser attached pic).

Gili Trawagan. An excellent "Off the beaten track" holiday island. Great fresh seafood restaurants, great diving, the quietest out of the way place you could find as long as you don't stay near the Mosque.

The most beautiful, relaxed island holiday. We watched the sunrise from our room and then walked to the other side of the island to watch the spectacular sunsets during drinks and dinner on the beach. The sunsets are absolutely amazing. We stayed on Gili Meno at Karma Beach resort. The beaches are pure white sand and the water is crystal... More
