5. From Lombok: Private Gili Islands Trip w. Glass-Bottom Boat
Spend the day exploring the Gili Islands' breathtaking beauty, snorkeling in the clear waters, chilling at the beach, and watching marine life swim by through a glass-bottomed boat on this fun-filled full-day tour from Lombok. Discover what makes Gili Air, Meno, and Trawangan each unique.
Get picked up from your accommodation early in the morning and travel to the Teluk Kodek Harbor, where you board a glass-bottom boat so that you can see the fish as they swim about in the waters below.
The first stop is Gili Air. Don snorkeling equipment and dive into the clear waters of the island. If lucky, you might spot colorful fish, coral, maybe even a lurking turtle.
Head to Gili Meno next and visit a turtle sanctuary before diving underwater to see the famous underwater statues called “The Nest”. Make sure to bring a waterproof phone case or waterproof camera to capture some photos of the unique art installation by sculptor Jason DeCaires Taylor.
Have lunch at Gili Trawangan, and spend a few hours chilling by the shores or diving back in for some more Gili snorkeling and other water activities. Then head back to the harbor and return to Lombok to make your last stop of the tour.
One of the best photo-op spots in the area, Malimbu Hill is a viewpoint that boasts scenic views of the sea and the shoreline. Snap a few photos to remember the trip by before returning to your accommodation.
