Gili Air is the island closest to the mainland and can be reached in around 20 minutes by local boat or five minutes by speedboat. Gili Air has the largest local population of the three islands, combining the charm of a tropical island with access to the people and culture that make Lombok unique.
At present, Gili Air is a laid back island with a beachfront lined with simple cafes and bars made from bamboo and thatch. Its main appeal is its unspoiled nature, with few of the swanky restaurants and villas that have sprouted up on Gili Trawangan, and that’s why so many people love it.
The water surrounding the island is of a colour hard to describe, a clear, translucent turquoise, made even more pure by the sparkling white sand beneath.
The views from all points of the island are stunning but the east coast, facing Lombok, is probably the most fantastic looking back at the big island with its white beaches and green mountains dominated by the volcano, Mt Rinjani.
