Gili Islands

Best Cheap Accomodations in Gili Islands

Lombok’s most visited destination: the Gili Islands or Gilis became a backpacker mecca in the 1980s and 1990s. The islands are very relaxed and laid-back, with countless little beachside cafes, and restaurants. But most of all, there are no cars or motorbikes to disturb the peace in these tiny islands

Many westerners are now living on the Gilis, and running businesses ranging from dive companies to resorts. There is a strong environmental focus as the reefs were damaged in the past. While previously most people came to dive, snorkel and party, now the islands offer a wider spectrum of activities and are then able to attract different kind of tourists including families and couples. The focus remains on the beach and in the sea.
