Gili Meno

"Paradise island" may sound like a cliché, but it is often used about our lovely island.


Gili Meno is the smallest and most peaceful of the 3 Gili islands. Our neighbours on both sides, Gili Trawangan and Gili Air, are a bit bigger. It is easy to get from one island to the next with the "Island hopper" or just charter a boat.


Gili Meno is only 1x2 kilometers wide. It take approx. 1 hour to walk around it . There are no cars on the island. If you need transport you  take a cidomo


What to do on this island?  Relax on the beach, on your porch or in one of the many barugas at the hotels and restaurants.


If you like more activity, the Gilis are the perfect place for diving and snorkling. Corals, fish and turtles are les than 20 meters off the shore. Just take  your snorkel and walk out.


Other things to do is surfing, if the wawes are right, visit the bird-park, or one of the turtle nurseryes on the island. Turtles lay their eggs here by full moon, especially in the rainy season. Last but not least we have magnificent sunrises and sunsets.


What to eat and drink ? Jepun Restaurant serve burgers, steaks, pasta, sea food and of course indonesian food. Other restaurants are located near the beach. Some of them serve fresh seafood BBQ at night. You can also get pizza, salat, sandwichs and Indonesian food. Bars are scattered around the island, so you will have the perfect view of the sea, sun and moon with your drink.  © 2010 •
