The Gili Islands (Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air) are 3 small islands just off Lombok's north western coast. With lovely beaches that are surrounded by crystal clear waters and great marine life the islands attract divers, day trippers, holiday makers, families, and honeymooners alike.
Far and away the most popular is Gili Trawangan, the furthest west from Lombok's mainland. Surprisingly Gili Trawangan hotels have a wide range of lodging on offer - from cheap backpacker accommodation to mid-range hotels, luxury resorts and boutique villas, as well as a choice of restaurants and bars that make for a lively holiday. There is now a rash of glamour options on the islands, especially so for hotel Gili Trawangan, and villa Gili Trawangan.
The Gili islands are very relaxed and laid-back, with countless little beachside cafes still playing reggae and serving up local cocktail drinks, but also at the other end of the scale, elaborate seafood buffets, fresh salads and good quality western and Asian food. Best of all, there are no cars or motorbikes to disturb the peace.
There are increasing numbers of westerners living on the Gilis, and operating businesses ranging from dive companies to resorts. While once people came to dive, snorkel and party, a more upmarket tourist is showing up now. It is still all about the beach, there are many more options to wine and dine or just hang out.
As well as a host of luxury hotels, Nusa Dua is home to the most popular golf course in Bali and the main convention centre on the island.
Nusa Dua understandably gets a lot of bad press amongst travelers as it is so artificial and sanitised. That does not change the fact though that the beaches here are glorious - white sand, deep, long and safe for swimming. The public beach at Geger is the best to head to if you are not staying at Nusa Dua. This is also home to one of the best museums in Bali. The fact that it is nearly always empty is testament that most visitors who stay here in the least Balinese part of the island are, not unsurprisingly, rather disinterested in learning much about Bali.
