Hello Lovelies, How’s it going!
So it’s finally becoming all wintery and it’s starting to get freezing… I spend a lot of my time reminiscing about my summers, and recently decided to find some of my old travelling pictures. So, I thought I’d do a little post about my little adventure to the Gili Islands. I’m going to talk about some little fun tips about all three of these beautiful islands, just so I can talk and think about them a little bit longer…
I was lucky enough to travel around Indonesia with three of my close friends, and we decided that we had to experience all the Gili Islands! We headed by boat from Nusa Lembongan to Gili Trawangan, which is known as the more busy and party island out of the three! It’s Beautiful! We spent the afternoon looking for a place to stay which wasn’t hard as everyone at the boat port all offer loads of places to stay. As we were on a low budget we just settled for anywhere clean with a bed and shower, as we would spend most our time outside our room exploring anyway.
Gili T is so lovely, you can ride around the whole thing and the sun sets are one of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever seen. It’s incredible and of course they have the famous swings which you can sit on and watch the sun go down.
Theres also a turtle reservation so you can see all the little baby turtles the island look after to keep the population of turtles going.
After spending a few nights on Gili T on the beaches and drinking lots of Bintang (the beer there which is really good). We decided to do a day trip snorkelling to Gili Meno, we were told this was a quieter island with less noise and attractions and when we got there again it was so beautiful and very open with a few nice hotels. It seemed like a great place for a couples holiday however we wanted to stay somewhere with a bit more going on, so a day trip was just enough for us!
Then we went to Gili Air, which we loved!! It was easy to bike/walk around the island and was a great place for us to relax. We spent most of our days playing cards in beach cafes and swimming in the sea and enjoying the peacefulness. And at night you can see the glowing plankton (bioluminescent plankton), which makes the sea look like it has thousands of stars in it.
So if you ever get the chance, I recommend going to at least one or all three of these islands, they are all beautiful! Here’s a few photos from my trip!
Love, India Moon.
