Bike around the island
Gili T takes less than two hours to circle with a bike—unless you stop at every corner to take pictures or be awed by the stunning view (which you most likely will). In Gili T, most people get around on bicycles, an ideal option that allows you to freely roam and explore every part of the island however you want.
Go diving (or learn how to)
The Gili Islands have numerous diving spots, each with its own features: colorful coral reefs at Gili Air Wall, sharks and stingrays at Shark Point, manta rays near Gili T, sea turtles at Gili Meno, and more. There are also plenty of diving courses that offer one-time lessons, whether you’re in to achieve pro status or just want a new fun experience under the water.
Hike the Hill Viewpoint
When thinking about the exotic Gili Islands, idyllic beaches with white sand and translucent water may come to mind. Maybe that’s why many tourists are surprised when discovering that Gili T has at its heart a picturesque hill, the highest point on the island overlooking the Gili Islands, the mountainous structure of Lombok , and even Bali from afar.
Ride a horse
Things rarely get more exotic than this; you are in a small tropical archipelago hidden somewhere, tracing the pristine coastline on a back of a horse. You get to explore the island and see the view—it’s so much fun.
Try stand-up paddling
This water sport is not only fun to try, but it also enables you to explore the islands via the open sea! Stand-up paddling is relatively easier to master than surfing, making it popular among many tourists in the Gili Islands.
Visit the sea turtle conservation
There’s a reason the Gilis are dubbed as the turtle capital of the world. It’s not hard to rub shoulders with one while swimming or snorkeling. To help the wildlife flourish in this archipelago, you can visit and help turtle conservations in Gili T or Gili Meno. You can contribute by donating your money or even just a little bit of your time to help their initiative and daily tasks.
Watch the sunset
Many people spend months in the Gilis and still go outside in time to witness the awe-inspiring sunset every single day. The clear sky, ocean view, cool breeze, and mountainous backdrop of Lombok conspire to make every single sunset noteworthy to observe; when visiting, make sure you catch the sight at least once.Oct 26/2020
