We cruised on the Dawn Princess and took a private tour to Gilli Nanguu and Gilli Kedis. We snorkelled on both, and the fish were plentiful and colourful, however the water was a little cloudy and also had bottles and plastic bags floating which was a shame. We loved our day on the islands.

Didn't go on the island - just caught a boat over from Lombok for snorkelling. Was beautiful and really fun feeding fish with bread out of a water bottle. NOTE: you'll read lots about the jellyfish larvae stingers and while for many this isn't an issue (my partner) for me it became a big one. The stings hurt but you... More

Definitely worth the picturesque boat ride from Bali! Each tropical island has something unique to offer. Gili T, is the busiest of the three and has more of a social, night life vibe. Gili Meno is all about chilling! Gili Air is a mix between the two. I would suggest spending time on each of the islands as they are... More

I did a day trip to Gili Air and was surprised, shocked and dismayed at the trash lying around. The other islands are cleaned regularly but is Gili Air? Sadly it seems not - (see my photos). It is all the more surprising that this is where the tourist disembark when they first go to the island. Not a very... More

Good spot for scuba diving just a swim away but too close with tourist boats. Good place to learn surfing with wave for 1st timers

We visited Gilis in 2014 and we return in 2016. This is the relaxed, idyllic tropical paradise we were dreaming about. No cars, no scooters, just bycicles and horses...maximum. You can even leave your flip-flops in your room and go without that. The beaches are crystal clear, no homeless dogs...great corals and white soft sand. The restaurants are amazing! Fresh... More

My husband and I are in Gilis and we are heartbroken over the poor ponies used for the horse carts. It has unfortunately ruined our trip here to see them suffer so. Just heartbreaking. I can say that I will not come back to the Gilis again and if you are an animal lover I would not recommend it. I... More

Gili T - There is nothing called a local place in this world thanks to the dirty works by Lonely Planet. The place is touristy & invites a lot of white 'party culture' adoloscents, the beach is crowded, the food is ok, the corals are dying, the scams are real and it's definitely not a quiet isolated place the world...

We stayed at Gili Air for about 5 days and it was amazing. It is nice to go snorkeling or to book a snorkeling day trip around the three Gili Islands. The most beautiful sunset is at the nothern part of Gili Air where you can see the sun sinking next to Gili Meno. The Food is also really good... More

I came to Gili Air with my two kids to scuba dive and relax, and was impressed by how beautiful and tranquil everything is. There's no cars on Gili Air, only horse drawn carriages and carts to ferry tourists to their accommodation. The sea is beautiful and the island is lovely and quiet. Perfect for those who would like to... More
