9 Best Places To Stay In Gili Meno, Indonesia - Updated 2024

| 3 min read

Gili Meno is one of the three small islands of the Gili Islands just off the northwest coast of Lombok, Indonesia. Also known as Tiga Gili (Three Gilis) and Kepulauan Gili (Gili Islands), Gili Meno is a popular destination for tourists and has several small resorts, usually consisting of a collection of huts for tourists, a small pool, and restaurant. Automobiles and motorized vehicles are prohibited on the islands by local ordinance, so the preferred method of transportation is by foot and bicycle or the horse-drawn carriage called a Cidomo. Scuba diving and freediving in and around the Gilis is also popular due to the abundance of marine life and attractive coral formations. The most famous diving spots are Shark Point, Manta Point, and Simon’s Reef.

The island can only be reached by sea and is frequented by a variety of fast boats operating various routes from Bali. Flights from Ngurah Rai International Airport to Lombok International Airport take about 40 minutes followed by a 2-hour taxi ride to Bangsal Harbour in Northwest Lombok and a local boat to the Gili Islands for a further 20-30mins. Public ferries depart from Padang Bai (Southeast Bali) every hour, taking a minimum of 4–5 hours to reach Lembar (Southwest Lombok), after which a taxi can be taken for a 2-hour drive to Bangsal Harbour where local boats to the Gili Islands await during daylight hours.
