The Gili Islands between Bali and Lombok are as picturesque as they are to come if you're looking for a refreshing, desert-Island experience. The Archipelago is an easy fast boat, three small islets, lined with coconut palm and turquoise water and offering a completely different experience from mainland Bali. The Gili Islands are a cohort of 3 small islands situated off Bali's neighbor, Lombok, to the north-west. The waters are rich with the marine tropical biodiversity and offer good visibility throughout the year and all three are highly popular with divers, namely Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air. They are technically part of Lombok, and collectively known as the' Gilis,' but have become a very popular optional route for visitors to Bali with simple and frequent transfers available.
On the northwest side of the island, Gili Trawangan has a good combination of quiet and calm beaches and a variety of dining and entertainment at southern restaurants and bares. Gili Meno is the ultimate way to escape; discreet, overall, with beautiful, steep beaches, and a ban from a late party in the local village. The small version of Gili Air is easily made by Trawangan, and usually completes the shopping experience at Gili Island.
As the best way to reach the Gilis is by sea from the two main harbors in Bali, the dry season is normally between June and September the most favorable sea conditions for traveling. This also provides the best visibility for you to snorkel and dive around the clear, crystal clear waters. The peak season is usually mid-year in terms of people, from July to August to December and January.
Backpacker style is usually the way forward. You will easily find the splendid white sand beaches hard to resist when you jump off the boat at any one of three Gilis. It is good to protect yourself from the harmful rays of tropical sun whether you decide to dip into the bleach, spend some time snorkeling or choose to circumnavigate a whole Gili along sandy paths. With fixed price items there are many retail stores around. Local stalls sell artifacts that are too difficult to withstand for anyone who simply likes "adventures" shopping.
