What to expect
The southeastern corner of Lombok is an area filled with many hidden treasures. For intrepid travellers with wanderlust and a taste for blissful solitude, many adventures await at the end of the road. Off the beaten track and serenely idyllic, the southern Gili islands are a well-kept secret in Lombok, offering visitors a similar experience to what the more famous Gili’s of the northwest used to offer around 20 years ago.
This full-day excursion takes you to 5 different islets on a motorised outrigger boat to experience a leisurely day on beautiful white sandy beaches with crystal clear waters, colourful coral reefs and some of the best snorkelling spots in the area.
What you will do Leave in the morning after breakfast, it is approximately 2.5 hours drive through the winding countryside and arrive in Padak Guar harbor in the south east of Lombok. A 15-minute outrigger boat ride takes you to Gili Petagan, a beautiful coastal area of mangroves and lazy tides, where you will also find a wonderful coral reef, bustling with tropical fish. Continue to Gili Kapal for more snorkeling and sunbathing on a strip of white sand protruding from the sea. A unique and picturesque natural causeway formed by powdery white sand, revealed at low tide, Gili Pasir offers panoramic views of the open ocean. Journey continues to a remote and uninhabited island outcrop fringed by coral gardens and a ring of white sand of Gili Bidara. After more swimming and snorkelling in sublime clear waters of Gili Kondo, it is time to return to your hotel for an afternoon at leisure. Lunch box is provided.
Showcasing the lesser known Gilis, this excursion is ideal for all age and perfect for those who seek an inexpensive tropical experience in a remote location away from the crowds.
