Gili Air is the smallest of the three Gili islands and the closest to the mainland. In contrast to the more famous party land Gili Trawangan, Gili Air is a very laid back scene that can in the peak seasons still produce a lively nightlife in the bars.
Activities at Gili Resort include the breathtaking dive and snorkeling explorations and courses for those who desire as well as a board selection of water sports. The pace of the island is very slow, it seems that the most popular activity here is lazing around on the beach drinking cocktails, eating fine foods and going for the odd dip in the sea. There is a long right-hand wave in the south of the island for surfers here that can be very good but does require a fair southerly swell to work properly and is therefore inconsistent.
