GILI MENO ISLAND LOMBOK INDONESIA

Gili Meno is the smallest island from the three Gilis island, located in the middle islands of the three northern coast Gilis with the smallest population and the least number of visitors. A great escape for honeymooners or some one who want to get a way from it all.

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.

The Gili Meno island has not developed as quickly as Gili T or Gili Air and suffered unpopularity when, in the mid -90's, the Lonely Planet guide book wrote that the salt water lake on the island created mosquitos problems. This was untrue - mosquitoes are no more prevalent on Gili Meno than anywhere else - the damage was done.

Many would say that the bad publicity was a blessing in disguise. Today Gili Meno is probably the prettiest of the three Gili islands with laid back and uncomplicated charm of true cataway tropical island. The water surrounding the island is clear turquoise and the beaches are covered in brilliant white sand, fringed with groves of coconut palms.

Although inventors are steadily buying up land, especially on the west coast facing to Gili T, there is no major development on the island as yet. There are few up market villas, but no large resorts. For now, small hotels and basic beach side bungalows provide accommodation for those seeking a peaceful place in the sun with un crowded beaches, clean waters and peaceful nights under the star filled skies. There is no rowdy bar scene and no noisy full moon parties hee.

Like all the Gilis, the best swimming beaches and most tourist facilities including the boat pier are along the East coast. Although there are small places dotted all around the island, many of the hotels and restaurants are located along the south eastern coast, with beautiful views over Gili Air and Mount Rinjani Volcano to the East.

It is possible to walk around the whole island on a small beach side trek in around 90 minutes. Those seeking total tranquality head to the north and west coasat, where more development has been quitely taking place over the past year.

How To Get Gili Meno
Public boat from Bangsal Harbour to gili Meno could be a problem, because passenger list at the ticket counter must reach at least 20 pax, otherwise you must charter the boat. If you meet other travellers, try ask them to share the price of boat charter. Most likely Public Boat goes often to Gili Air and Gili Trawangan.

If you have no choice, rather than charter the boat yourself, try stay for a night in Gili Air or Gili Trawangan, then in the next morning take Island Hopping Boat that regularly leaves twice a day daily at around 9 - 10AM and 14:00 - 15:00PM. or you can call us for Shuttle bus and boat available to book at sharing price.

Snorkeling
While divers are able to regularly swim with black tip, those who prefer to just drifts in the currents with a snorkel, fins and mask are never left disappointed by the more than 6,000 species of marine life living just off-shore.

Fishing
Fishing is one of the highlight activities on the islands. Deep fishing remain the best on south west of the Gili. Carry your own equipment if you're not familiar with the traditional-style of fishing.

Travel Tip and Sugestion

» While the Island is busiest from May thorough August, the quieter place off the season from January to April provides a better opportunity to enjoy all the islet has to offer, with accommodation rate is lower then peak season.

» 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.
