GILI AIR ISLAND LOMBOK INDONESIA

Gili Air is the closest to the mainland and the most quicly accessed of the three Gilis, takes about 20 minutes by outrigger boat from Bangsal and 5 minutes by speed boat. Gili Air is has the largest local population of the three and combines the charm of a tropical island, with access to the people and culture that make Lombok so special.

At present Gili Air is a laid back litle island with beach front lined by simple cafe's and Bars made from from Bamboo and thach. Its main appeal is in its unspoilt nature, with few of the swanky restauants and villas that have sprouted up on Gili Trawangan and that's why so many people love it.

Diving facilities abound and there is nice snorkelling directly from the shore, particularly from the east and northest beaches. The south of the island has some good surf break in the right conditions.

Over the past couple of years, invenstors have been sanpping up land on Gili Air and number of up market accommodations and Restaurants have sprung up, with more to open next year. More development is on the East coast and towards the south.

A holiday on this island will long be impressed on the visitor's mind, as a kind of 'Terrestrial Paradise' that still exists on earth. The island economy has only recently been transformed from the fish market to a prevalently tourist market. There are continually new small resorts and restaurants springing up, which last just one season, whilst others, with greater experience, manage to establish themselves, and provide modest and primitive services that are of great interest to the tourists arriving on the island, in search of primitive adventures.

» For who wish to come on the busiest season we sugest you to make advance hotel booking before coming due to the accommodation mostly overbooked.
