The island of Lombok truly seems endless when talking about its richness and natural beauty. As we know, there are more than 200 Gilis (small islands) around Lombok Island, and “Gili” itself means a small island in the Sasak language (the language of Lombok). Most of these Gilis are uninhabited but hold boundless underwater natural wealth. Exploring the beauty of Gili Kondo, Gili Petagan, Gili Bidara, and Gili Kapal will prove the immense natural riches of Indonesia, especially on the small island called “Lombok.” Here are some reasons why you should visit the eastern Gili islands of Lombok:
- These Gili islands are uninhabited, and visiting them feels like having your own remote island, far from the noise of the city.
- The sea water is incredibly clear. When you go around with a boat, you don’t even need to get into the water for snorkeling if you just want to witness the beauty of coral reefs and other marine life. The gradation of light blue sea water, resembling glass, will delight you with the underwater beauty it reveals.
- It’s a haven for those who love snorkeling or diving, indeed. This place is a paradise for enthusiasts of snorkeling or diving. The diverse coral reefs with their colorful fish truly captivate you and keep your eyes wide open. It’s truly astonishing.
- Surrounded by exotic mangroves, you’ll never tire of circling the Gilis in this sambal (traditional Indonesian sauce) setting. On Gili Petagan, you’ll pass through a mangrove forest that encircles the surrounding sea. It’s incredibly beautiful.
For those who want to visit what’s dubbed the “hidden paradise in East Lombok,” you don’t need to worry about the details because we have arranged your travel package to explore every corner of the Gili islands there. You can see more details about the package we provide!
Itinerary Ful Day Tour To Gili Kondo, Gili Petagan, Gili Kapal and Gili Bidara
In the morning, the Cemos and Coral Voice team will pick you up from various areas in Lombok or designated locations. However, to fully experience touring all the Gili islands, we recommend staying at a hotel in the East Lombok area. This way, you won’t spend too much time traveling to the Gili islands in Sambelia.
Our team will warmly greet you, introduce themselves, and provide a brief orientation before embarking on the journey to the destination. Afterward, we will begin the journey towards Gili Kondo.
The first snorkeling spot we’ll visit is Gili Petagan. We’ll snorkel and explore every inch of this Gili, observing the waving coral reefs alongside Nemo fish that swim as if they’re in a fairy tale world! After snorkeling here, we’ll return to the boat and head to Gili Kapal. Along the journey, we’ll pass through lush green mangrove forests, adding to the serene natural ambiance. Throughout the trip, you’ll be treated to the colorful creations of the Creator: the different shades of the blue sea indicating its shallow and deep areas, the green of the mangrove forest, and the diverse marine life you can witness from the boat.
Gili Kapal is a small island in the middle of the sea that emerges during low tide. We will make a brief stop here, take photos, and express ourselves as we please. So, for this particular island, its appearance will be influenced by the ebb and flow of the sea.
After visiting Gili Kapal, this time we will head to Gili Bidara to see the Giant Coral, a massive coral reef as far as the eye can see, meticulously arranged by nature. Enjoy the beauty of marine life there. Afterward, the team will provide you with instructions for lunch and a rest on this beautiful island. After lunch, you can savor the enchanting atmosphere of the white sandy beach!
Throughout the journey, you’ll be amazed by the clarity of the sea waters here. You will observe coral reefs and colorful fish from the surface of the boat. Upon arriving at Gili Kondo, your snorkeling guide will assist you in embarking on an exciting adventure to witness the beauty of the underwater paradise. At Gili Kondo, the vibrant and diverse coral reefs, along with the colorful and ornamental fish, will make you lose track of time.
We will escort you back to your next destination within the Lombok area. If you’re returning to the Three Gilis (Trawangan, Meno, and Gili Air), we will provide you with a speed boat, of course with an additional charge according to the applicable rates.
