Gili Air serves privation for you who wants to have some relax time alone or just with a special person only. This island is far from the crowd and gives the tourist a new experience of seeing a beautiful place with a local citizen in it.
While Gili Meno can give you an opportunity to see the sea turtle or penyu. Here you can see them swimming in Gili Meno Wall.
Then Gili Trawangan is the most crowd place between the other Gili. Here there is a lot of hotel and restaurant just like a little Bali.

You can see more than just a beach in Lombok. There is some beautiful beach you can visit. Still, in Lombok, you can see Kuta Beach Lombok.
