From Bali: Private 3-Day Gili Islands Tour with Snorkeling

1. From Bali: Private 3-Day Gili Islands Tour with Snorkeling

In between Bali and Lombok, 3 idyllic islands can be found: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air. These little coral islands have a real laid-back tropical island feel and make perfectly placed hideouts from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. With no traffic and nothing but fresh ocean breeze, this 3-day 2-night tour takes you to see two of these islands for an excursion full of relaxation, and special moments to remember for a lifetime. Your first day starts with an early morning pick-up from your hotel in Bali, which will take you to the harbor to a speedboat that will arrive at Gili Trawangan in just a few hours’ time. On the way, catch breathtaking views of Mount Agung and the deep blue sea. Once on the island, spend the day relaxing at a beautiful tropical island resort – lounge by the pool, dive in the sea or hop on a bicycle to explore the coastline. Don’t miss the sunset at one of the beach clubs – it’s a true spectacle of nature you don’t want to miss out on! Your second day features a private snorkeling tour on Gili Trawangan’s quieter but equally beautiful sister island, Gili Air. The 3-hour snorkeling tour takes you to see several amazing spots, beautiful coral reefs and colorful marine life. You’ll also get to swim with giant sea turtles, a magical experience! Spend the rest of the day as you like at another tropical resort – sipping cocktails, swimming, sunbathing – before another magnificent island sunset kicks in. If you’re an early bird, start day 3 early to catch the awe-inspiring sunrise of Gili Air. Otherwise, snoozing in bed to the sound of the sea is a lovely way to spend the first hours of your last morning on the Gili Islands. Enjoy one more swim in the turquoise sea, sit down for breakfast and say goodbye to these gorgeous islands. The speedboat will bring you back to the mainland of Bali where you will be transported to your hotel by shuttle bus.

Being a private tour, they allowed us to decide how much time to spend on each island, which allowed us to be in the areas where there were fewer tourists. They accompanied us on the first dive to show us fish and the place where we ate was very tasty.

The guide was very attentive and pointed out curiosities of Lombok. The visits were interesting and the visit to the waterfall highly recommended! Tip: wear suitable footwear to walk through the river and wet stones

Really fun trip, Krisna was in constant communication with us throughout the journey and we loved every moment. We wish had stayed on the islands for longer though!! Thanks again

It was our first time in Indonesia and to visit the Gili islands. This was a great way to experience everything that the 3 Gili islands had to offer. It was a real treat!

We loved this trip, the waterfalls were beautiful and our tour guide gave so much information it was very educational!
