It has been a little quite on our blog the last few week, mainly due to the fact that we have been busy taking photos and writing content to our new guide to the Gili Islands. We are really excited to let you know that it’s now on-line.
Never heard of the Gili islands? It is three small islands located about an hour and a half by boat from Bali. The sand is incredible white, matching the equally incredibly blue water perfectly. The islands no cars, no motorbikes policy very much illustrates the laid back atmosphere that is so characteristic to the Gili Islands.
Even though the three islands only are a few minutes by boat apart they are very distinctive in character.
The largest and by far the most visited of the Islands is Gili Trawangan. The main stretch of the beach road has a myriad of restaurants serving barbecued seafood at night and a good selection of bars offer plenty of opportunities for those who want to party all night under the brightly shining starts.
Read more about Gili Trawangan in our Trawangan guide.
The pace on Gili Air is a little less slow due to the fact that a more tourists come here and a larger local community that more or less unaffected by tourism are living there daily live in the village you’ll find inland on the island.

Gili Meno is the smallest of the three islands and is pure tranquility. Even for theslow-paced Gilis the pace is extremely slow on Gili Meno and activities are almost limited to hanging out on the beach or swimming with one of the many sea turtles that is one of the islands trademarks.
