Nusa Lembongan & Gili Air


I will be visiting Bali in August and im planing to visit both destinations (Nusa Lembongan & Gili Air).

I have in total 9 days to spend. My question is where should i stay more?

- 5 days in Nusa Lembongan & 4 days in Gili Air or vice versa?

I want to relax and enjoy the beaches, food and island life.

Hi Ahmed.

So you are coming to Bali but spending all your time on 2 islands.

Bear in mind that the are no boats to Gilis after 1300 so if you arrive after 10am little chance of getting to Padangbai in time. There are boats all day to Lembongan but if you do Lembongan then Gilis bear in mind that you should not leave a sea journey on the day of your flight home.

Your exact flight times therefore will determine what you can and can not do.

Thank you for your reply NotaPigsty.

No i will spend 28 days in Indonesia and i want to spend my last 9 days on Nusa & Air.

I will be backpacking and will start from Jakarta all the way to Ubud then the two islands.

Then i'm planning to head back to Jakarta from Lombok Airport.

But i really want to know which is better in island life and relaxing atmosphere Nusa or Air?
