Gili Islands - 17th & 18th of August

sunny 28 °C


We took the fast boat from Amed to Gilis… this was only 1h and the fastest connection between Bali and Lombok. The ride was bumpy and you need about 400000 rupiahs each to get across.

We stayed in Trawangan as this was where Isabelle and Xavier were staying….

We did a day trip to snorkel in the 3 island and our favourite one was Gili Air as we saw and swam with a great turtle who was really chilled out.

It was a beautiful experience and these animals are so relaxed and gilde so nicely in the sea it is just lovely.

If we were to go back again we would stay in Gili Air for sure ….

Our hotel in Gili Trawangan was very good even though 550000 but all here is more expensive so you will not find too cheap places or if you do they will be at the back, cold showers etc…

The place we stayed in is Gili Smile and the bungalows were these thatched roofed houses very cute with an outside mandi.

The staff was excellent as it was when Hayden had dengue fever and they looked after him whilst we went snorkelling with Teo and even gave the kids a present each when we left .

Very very nice I would highly recommend the place.
