Gili Air is the second smallest of the islands and the closest to mainland Lombok, making it popular with honeymoon couples and travellers seeking a quiet retreat. The island offers excellent snorkelling and scuba diving off its east coast, and turtles can be seen along the coral reef.
It has a population of about 1,800. Other water sports such as Stand Up Paddle boarding and Kite surfing are also now available.
The Gili Meno is the smallest and most secluded of the islands and to Gili Trawangan the largest island, known for its many restaurants and parties, makes Gili Air an attractive destination. Both other Islands are a quick boat ride away.
