I am reminded of a common Christmas song known as "Excursion to Bangor" It was # 1 throughout a Christmas period approximately 35 years back or there about's. I would recommend for individuals that will just like a trip lower memory lane they turn to grooveshark to find out if they carry the track.
In whatever way I digress because this blog is all about Gili or Gili Trawangan more specifically. Once we required a weekend visit to this beautiful a part of our world, in some way this ties into my opening statement lol, artistic licence possibly.
Gili is an accumulation of 3 islands Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air undoubtedly the greatest is Trawangan. To gain access to these fabulous little desert islands you need to travel either from Lombok or from Indonesia using a high-speed catamaran. From Indonesia the trip takes around an hour, Lombok substantially less as you can tell these islands from Lombok, in either case its an enjoyable experience try not to expect an airport terminal because there really is not space to place one, so access will stay from over the "foamy briny".
We remained around the Island of Gili Trawangan. that has the mountain ranges of Lombok and also the sandy beaches of Gili Meno like a superb backdrop. The very first factor you see when you turn up is the way quaint this area is, I have lifted a para in the Gili Tourist web site to explain this better:
":The Gili Islands, NO cars ! NO motorbikes ! Don’t worry ! Turtle capital around the globe. Arcing from the northwest corner of Lombok, are three idyllic atolls, in which the sand continues to be powdery whitened, water a obvious sparkling turquoise, and also the florida sunsets over Bali's volcano Mt. Agung in the western world simply spectacular. The place to find the biggest Irish bar around the littlest island on the planet, a geniune Japanese sushi restaurant, a turtle hatchery, ominous sounding dive sites like -Shark Point', 62 Bio Rock reef regrowth projects, and mile after mile of whitened sandy beaches, Lombok's Gili islands, or even the Gilis for brief, constitutes a remarkably ideal getaway place to go for everybody of any age and capabilities.
Details About THE GILI ISLANDS Arcing from the northwest corner of Lombok, the Gili Islands are three idyllic atolls in which the sand continues to be powdery whitened, water a obvious sparkling turquoise, and also the florida sunsets over Bali's Agung in the western world simply spectacular.

Getting there's simple and easy , whichever way you're considering, you'll be certain to see a number of Indonesia and Lombok's breathtaking scenery.
No motorised transport
Fortunately the 3 Gili Islands won't permit any kind of motorised transport in it and for that reason depend on bicycles or equine and buggies, in your area referred to as -Cidomos'. Bicycles could be leased from the kiosks and price from around Rp20,000 an hour or so, or less expensive, request for that daily rate. Cidomos (local equine and buggies) are often situated all around the islands but sometimes hold off the harbour and busy spots, plans can be created if you're remaining inside a more remote put on the area, for example a late ride home-. Bargaining may be the norm, and try to agree a cost before your trip.
Although initially discovered by hikers within the mid eighties, with a status like a party destination, the Gilis now boasts themselves like a great destination appropriate for groups of any age. Various new hotels, luxury villas, and boutique bungalows now look after children and provide value, some have baby sitting services, and with a lot of activities around the islands families are certain to enjoy their holidays fully."
A few days here's just paradise because there is really nowhere such as this, the nearest I understand may be the island of Sark which belongs to the Jersey, Guernsey islands from the British, french coast because there too you will simply find 'push' bikes, equine and buggies.
Beaches here on Gili Trawangan are sandy (although there's an excessive amount of cleaned up barrier for delicate ft lol), the ocean is turquoise and also the climate spectacular with 'barmy evenings' on tap. You're treated to a range of different cuisine in the beach side cafe's which are reasonably listed and supply a wonderful atmosphere.
During the day you are able to laze around the beaches, laying on one of the numerous sunbeds that are around and supplied by the coffee shops, bookstores, totally free all you need to do is invest in buy drinks and possibly a snack because the day progresses and for your you're able to benefit from the beach, the ocean and also the sun. Beaches have and good plantation of coconut trees which offer ample shade for that more proper skin.
For that more adventurous the seas from the shoreline give a vibrant colourful existence well suited for scuba or simply scuba diving activities. Organized dive outings have been in abundance much like many glass bottom motorboats as each one is able individuals to enjoy, the existence that is available below.
If you want to savor the sights you'll be able to eat the whole shoreline within 1-to-1.5 hrs, just to walk for this shoreline may take approximately 2 hrs if done in a leisurely pace, preventing periodically for necessary refreshment. Over methods to travel the area are equine and trolley, by cycling, beware to cycle a lot of the terrain is soft sand although that's gradually altering as cobbled ways seriously stream, in either case this trip is essential because the landscape is spectacular, the environment is clean creating a pleasurable way of spending a couple of hrs.
Accommodation is protected, neat and comfortable although 5* retreats are few in number. be-aware many accommodation companies provide water from the hybrid system of salt and freshwater. that is OK but liquid cleaning soap is essential if you wish to feel clean..
