View of Gili Air from the jetty with Lombok in the background. Gili Air is a great place to relax and enjoy scuba diving. It can be reached by speed boat from Padang Bai in Bali in a bit more than 2 hours.
Gili Air is the second smallest of the Gilis and it's closest to the Lombok mainland, making it popular with honeymoon couples and travelers seeking a quiet retreat. It has a population of about 1,000 and administratively lies in the West Nusa Tenggara province. The island offers excellent snorkeling and scuba diving off its east coast, and turtles can be seen along the coral reef. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gili_Air
