Tourists often skip over the Gili Islands because of their close proximity to Bali. Yet with less foot traffic and no automobiles, the islands may just be the tropical destination you’re looking for. The largest of the three, Gili Trawangan, has a long-standing reputation as a party hotspot, while Gili Air is backpacker-friendly and Gili Meno is the quintessential relaxed island. With clear waters abundant with marine wildlife, you're guaranteed a great time regardless of which site you choose to visit. Be warned: visitors of these islands are known to stay long after their departure date.
