Both other Islands are a fast boat ride away.

Gili Trawangan

Gili Trawangan is the largest of Lombok‘s Gili Islands and also the only one to grow significantly (30 m) above sea level. The name Trawangan originates from the Indonesian word Terowongan (Tunnel) because of the existence of a cave tunnel assembled there during the Japanese occupation in World War 2. The main focus of settlement, recreation, lodging and diving business is situated on the eastern side of this island. About Gili Trawangan (as well as the other two Gilis), there are no motorised vehicles. The key means of transportation are bicycles (leased by sailors for tourists) and cidomo (a small horse-drawn carriage). For travelling to and from each of those Gilis, locals typically use motorised boats and speedboats.

Gili Meno

Gili Meno is at the centre of Lombok’s three shore coast Gilis. Gili Meno has a population of approximately 500, mostly concentrated on the middle of the island. The primary income comes from tourism, coconut farms and fishing. On the west part of the island, there’s a tiny shallow lake that generates salt from the rainy season. Until a few years ago there was also a small production of seaweed on the reef in the north end of the island. Gili Meno has swimming beaches around the island along with a turtle sanctuary. The island also attracts fewer tourists than Gili Trawangan and is the quietest and smallest of all the islands. However, honeymooners are usually drawn to the crystal clear water along with relaxing, secluded white beaches.

Pura Batu Bolong

Pura Batu Bolong is now Lombok’s most appealing Hindu temple and especially lovely. Combine an ever-welcoming Balinese neighbourhood as they leave offerings in the 14 altars and pagodas that fall down a rocky underwater outcrop in the foaming sea roughly 2 km south of central Senggigi. The stone underneath the temple includes a natural gap, hence the name (Batu bolong literally means ‘stone with the hole’).
