Turtles swimming in the Gili Islands, Indonesia
Gili Islands Snorkeling Tour, Indonesia
Today will be a day like no other. You’ll be whisked off to the west, arriving at Teluk Kode where your local outrigger will transport you to a haven of three idyllic atolls. What could be more blissful than seeking out a perfect spot of uninterrupted privacy, as you island-hop your way through each one of these laid-back gems?
First up is a brief boat ride to the glorious offerings of Gili Air, the second smallest of the islands and located closest to the bustling mainland of Lombok. A close-knit community of local inhabitants and a blissfully relaxed pace of life provide the perfect start to this full day trip. Uncover the inviting sandy strip and charming coconut groves before embracing the depths of the tempting shores for some unrivalled snorkeling fun.
Then it’s onto the secret swimming spots of Gili Trawangan, known as ‘Gili T’ to its favorite visitors. As the largest, most developed and tourist friendly island, these world famous waters welcome the excited underwater traveler. Sea turtles await your arrival with every stroke as you make your way through the glistening waters.
Your last stop on this bewitching tour is Gili Meno, the quietest and smallest of the three islets. Fringed by seamless white sand and swaying palms, the peacefully populated surroundings are perfect for those holidaymakers seeking a little more isolation -not to mention a chance to observe the shimmering shoals of fish and bursts of colorful coral reefs.
After unearthing the depths of the turquoise ocean, you’ll head back to the lively main island of Lombok, before being driven back to your hotel.
