For those of you that don't fancy diving but still want to enjoy the crystal clear water and have a chance of swimming with turtles, there are daily snorkelling trips that visit all three Gilis. There is also plenty of great marine life to be found just off the beach. Turtles, moray eels and cuttlefish are a few of the creatures to be seen just 20meters from the shore. Not everywhere is good for snorkelling as there can be strong tidal currents so make sure you check with us or another dive shop before going out.

All 3 Gilis have surf, the South East corner of Trawangan and Gili Air are the main areas but both are very much dependant on the swell. When it's good it's really good however it isn't consistent. If you want consistent waves locally go to South Lombok. It's also not for beginners as it's all reef breaks.
On the north end of Gili Trawangan there is a new restaurant and accommodation called Karma Kayak. Run by Grace and Astrid it's a relaxing and peaceful part of the island where you can chill out and sample some of their great 'Tapas'. Astrid is also a Kayaking instructor and offers courses and tours around the Gilis. For more information contact them by email.
