Yes it sounds funny and cute, but the name ‘Gili Islands’ has a meaning though, which translates to ‘Little Islands’. The three Gili Islands – Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air, are located on the northwest coast of Lombok. The fun bit is that, based on what your interests are, you can choose which Gili Island to visit!

Affectionately called Gilli T, the island has the maximum number of hotels, resorts and bars. If you are the ultimate party-lover, then Gili T is waiting just for you. The various clubs and bars here often throw parties that attract the young crowd. Once you’re there, get ready to enjoy your time in the sun, sand and sex! Besides these, snorkelling, boozing and swimming in the sea are a bonus. Another thing – youngsters flock to Gili T to get ‘high’, if you know what I mean.

Not many people choose to come to Gili Meno, making it a calm paradise and an obvious choice for the canoodlers. If not anything, romance is surely in the Gili Meno Island.
