As the archipelago’s smallest island, Gili Meno is perfectly pint-sized. At just 2-kilometres long and 1-kilometre wide, it offers holidaymakers the chance to live out their wildest desert island fantasies. For rest, relaxation and unsurpassed tranquillity, Gili Meno is a fantastic option.
Most accommodation is centred along the island’s east coast, which is home to its prettiest beach. For those that venture inland, local homesteads, breezy coconut plantations and a secluded salt lake await. Given with its castaway atmosphere, Gili Meno is eternally popular with honeymooners and travellers in search of an off-the-beaten-track experience.
The island is surprisingly easy to access from Bali or Lombok, with both public slow boats and express speed boats making the trip. Gili Meno is just 1-kilometre from Gili Trawangan, with the boat trip between the two taking just minutes. Some adventurous visitors even choose to kayak or paddleboard the gap. Given its tiny footprint, Gili Meno can be circumnavigated by foot in under 2-hours.
The Gili Archipelago boasts some of the best dive sites on the planet, including the famous Gili Meno Wall. Exploding with colourful corals and giant gorgonian fans, Gili Meno’s dive site is a great place to spot sea turtles cruising the waters. There are also fantastic shore dives, as well as a vibrant marine ecosystem off the island’s derelict jetty.
