Perfect Romantic Getaway
Gili Meno has a population of just 400 people and is sandwiched between the other two Gilis. This secluded location makes it ideal for people looking for a quiet time during their vacation. It is the perfect romantic getaway in Lombok away from the hustle and bustle of the larger islands.
Wide Array of Activities
It is also a popular diving destination with incredible diving sites, such as Meno Wall, Sea Turtle Point, and Blue Coral Point. The breathtaking beaches are ideal for lovers to spend alone time and relax without the bothersome crowds that are common on other islands in the country.
There are also snorkeling opportunities just off the beach, which is a perfect activity for beginners. For diving enthusiasts, Gill Meno offers the ultimate diving experience with a swimming-pool visibility. This means you have an opportunity to enjoy the diverse range of marine life to be found on the coral reefs and sea walls.
There‘s a costal path around the island that you can cover in 90 minutes on foot. If you want a more leisurely way around the island, you can opt for a horse-drawn cart (cimondo). Exploring the islands on foot or on a cart is a perfect way to spend the day because the landscape is scenic.
There are well-lined palm trees and lush vegetation inland. The laidback community on the island is welcoming and you can even partake some of the activities they are involved in as you enjoy your time here.
