Directions to the Gili Islands from Lombok to go diving
Diving around the Gili Islands should be on your bucket-list when visiting and travelling in Indonesia.

With Shark Point, Coral Fan Garden or Bounty Wreck, diving in Gili Trawangan is one of the best things to do in Indonesia. On Gili T., the turtle paradise, baby turtles are raised in special basins until they got released and you can meet them underwater.
Gili Trawangan, a diving paradise
The three Gili Islands on the northwest coast of Lombok are famous for their crystal clear and turquoise water, visibility up to 35 meters and a water temperature of 28 to 30 degrees. That makes those little exotic islands a snorkeling and diving paradise. The Gili Islands have the reputation of being one of Indonesia’s best dive sites in the middle of the coral triangle. It is not for nothing that the Gili Islands are also called the “Turtle Paradise”. The peace on the islands is preserved by the prohibition of motorized vehicles. The laid-back charm comes from its relaxed locals and visitors and the eternal sunshine and dreamlike beaches. Some even say they are the “Maledives of Indonesia” and they do not exaggerate. The largest and liveliest of the three islands is Gili Trawangan where most of the restaurants, cafes, accommodation, dive shops and dive sites can be found. Gili Meno and Gili Air are smaller islands next to Gili Trawangan. Day trips from the Living Asia Resort and Spa Lombok to the Gili Islands can be organized or join a dive trip with DSM Dive, the dive centre inside the Living Asia Hotel and on Gili Trawangan.
