These islands are located in southwest of Lombok Islands with Gili Nanggu as the main island. Beautiful white sandy pristine beaches, amazing panoramic view of Lombok Mountains accross the island, and a lot of submarine fish are the main feature of these islands.
Location: Lombok Island, Nusa Tenggara Barat Province, Indonesia
Main Island: Lombok
Pros: best view of both the beach and underwater, cheap, accesible, a lot of tours to get there, relatively good infrastructure, less touristy
Cons: though they have a lot of marine fish, the damaged coral reefs are bit unfortunate
How to Get There: Drive about 3 hours from Kuta Lombok or Gili Trawangan or Mataram. Get a local boat to the Gilis for island hopping.
