Once you arrive at the Gilis, be ready to enjoy a tropical paradise. There are activities for everyone. The white sand and bathwater temperature water are perfect for full-on beach days, but for the more active and adventurous, the Gilis offer some of the best snorkeling and diving in the entire world for all levels from the first timer to the seasoned veteran. There are many local diving schools and companies that offer guided tours and equipment rentals, but our favorite is local run Lombok dive.
One of our favorite yoga teachers Amanda Capobianco, will be on hand to offer morning yoga class in exchange for some spending rupiah.
Visiting the other Gilis can be fun even if its just for lunch or to check out the crowded beaches which are more of a scene. Renting a boat to check out the surrounding areas is super cheap.
