We all yearn for that perfect beach holiday. Bright blue waters, white sandy beaches and the least amount of commercialization possible. What if we told you that this dream destination exists? Well, it does! Introducing Gili Nanggu, affectionately called Paradise Island by many.
So, where is Gili Nanggu? This small tropical island sits just of the southwest coast of Lombok (which is approximately a 20 minute ride). It seems that there are almost no resorts at all to speak of here (of course if you yearn for an extended stay, this can definitely be arranged in one of the few that exists in the island). Gili Nanggu boasts all the characteristics of a serene tropical beach destination. Corals are only meters away from the shoreline. The waters are warm, clean, blue and is home to an impressive array of fish. If you are on the island in the early morning or evening, make sure to watch the sunrise and sunset. It is majestic, no pun intended because the sun rises over Lombok’s Mt. Rinjani and sets on Bali’s Mt. Agung
At Gili Nanggu, privacy is guarantee. No beach traders, hawkers or unwelcome visitors will disturb the peace, because there aren’t any, allowing you to enjoy your snorkeling, swimming, reading, sunbathing or relaxation in utmost privacy. All there is to disturb the peace are the hypnotic waves of the ocean. Oh, and of course the poetic sound of birds chirping and singing in the morning and throughout the day.
Well, there is more than Gili Nanggu on this day trip. This afternoon, proceed to Gili Kedis, a tiny island where there is time to relax and enjoy yet another slice of paradise. Many call this uninhabited island Honeymoon Island or Romance Island. You will see why.
After your time at these beautiful islands, head back to Lombok and back to your hotel. En-route, stop at Banyumulek pottery village. The village is one of the main clay producers on the island and home to some cool pieces of art which despite its deep traditional roots, is slowly being recognized in the international art community.
Ahhhh. Island bliss. You can make it happen by booking this day trip. It can easily be combined with your Indonesia tours. If you would like to extend your stay at Gili Nanggu, just contact us and we’ll arrange it for you.
