Best (and probably only) swimming beach on Gili Air is on the East side (facing Lombok). Its really nice you can relax there at the Chill Out or Zip Bar. The rest of the Island doesnt really have an area for swimming unless its high tide.

The south is a harbour area so there are always boats there(its also pretty dirty there sometimes), and the north and west its not possible to get in to the sea unless its high tide! Nearest accommodations to the swimming beach are Sunrise and Manta Dive, there are some local accoms there as well like Gita Gili.

Hope that helps

There's nice snorkelling straight off the beach directly outside Tami's Neverland cafe, which is the first one you come to if you walk right from the harbour. Nice thatched roof open sided bamboo place, right next to the new dive concrete shop with the hideous overlit swimming pool (shock horror!)

It's Pretty shallow if the tide is very low but generally good. Tami's does good food and they're a friendly young family.. there's a slackline there too!
