Cruises from Gili Islands, Indonesia
The Gili Islands, consisting of Trawangn, Meno and Air, are the most popular tourist destinations of Lombok in Indonesia. In a rare display of foresight, all forms of motorised transport are banned from the islands. There are bicycles for rent, but the numerous horse-drawn carts, known as cidomo, are very popular. There is good diving here and while it is known as a teaching centre, there are arrangements for experienced divers as well. Read more
Equipment is kept in top shape and there are excellent facilities and dive instructors. Interestingly, prices for dives are fixed. Snorkelling is also very well catered for, though you can bargain for the use of equipment.
