Boasting a tantalising triptych of powdery white-sand beaches, turquoise seas teeming with life and a laid-back, beachy vibe, Gili Island holidays are the stuff of dreams. The three islands - located off the northwest coast of Lombok - are a vision of paradise; each with their own specific charm and beauty that together possess a powerful tranquillity that’s difficult to find elsewhere. Cars and motorbikes are banned (which only adds to the relaxed atmosphere) so it’s easy to steal moments where the only thing you’ll hear are swaying palms and lapping waves. An acclaimed diving area too, you’ll easily spot sharks,
rays and turtles roaming the coral reefs on a few trips underwater. Plus, there are numerous incredible dive sites that showcase the marine life in all its colourful glory (Shark Point and Turtle Heaven are two of the best if you ask us) so you’ll be spoilt for choice. Once you’ve enjoyed a glimpse of the island’s underwater treasures, head back to dry land and fill your Gili Islands holidays with some seriously indulgent activities, from sunbathing and shopping to bar hopping and eating. Here, time truly slows down. The only thing you’ll have to worry about is which beach to explore next and what cocktail to order.
