Our Diver's Tale this month... Gili Islands, Indonesia
Gili Islands The Tree Gilis - Trawangan - Air and Meno located just off the West coast of Lombok, are beautiful little sandy islands that have become a favorite destinations for divers who want to get away from it all. The reefs are of excellent quality and the dive sites are very easy to reach,
even the furthest sites being only a few minutes away by boat
Gili Air Island is a small quiet island with white sandy beaches, palm trees, coral reefs and incredibly active marine life. No cars or motorcycles
are allowed on Gili Air Island. Transportation is provided by small, quaint horse carts and bicycles.
Gili Trawangan Island is the biggest one of the three islands and the most visited, especially by young people it is the party island.
Gili Meno is the smallest and quietest. This is as close as you'll get
to Robinson Crusoe in the Gilis.
The Gilis are located just of the West coast of Lombok.
Dream Divers has dive shops on Gili Trawangan and Gili Air.
