This is in Gili Trawangan, the most touristy of the three Gili islands off Lombok. It’s still a pretty tropical island; But even in the off season it did seem a bit seedy, with too many folks who push you to buy all kinds of stuff.
Gili Meno is the most quiet of the Gilis. Gili Air is in-between, with bars & fun, but no bad crowds.
Gili Trawangan, the most popular among the three Gili’s. Just kick back and enjoy the sun, nightly beach parties and sea. The main stripe is full of accommodations, restaurants, and dive shops.
