Bali to Secret Gili Cruise 2- 3 Nights
Departing from Bali, this boat tour to Lombok’s Secret Gilis is a fantastic introduction to cruising if you only have limited time to spare. This cruise allows you to experience some of the secluded areas in the region.
The Secret Gilis in Sekotong Bay boasts spectacular beaches against a magnificent backdrop of green hills. They are mostly unpopulated and off-the-radar to most tourists hence we call them the Secret Gili’s. They feature blue waters mixed with shallow, vivid coral reefs and white sand beaches lined with palm trees – truly a paradise.
A perfect place for a quiet time for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing. There are many flawless locations to have a beach BBQ of freshly caught fishes. Share a bottle (or two) of ice-cold beer with friends and family for some much-needed quality time.
Secret Gilis return transfer to Bali
There is an option to return back to Bali quicker via a Fastboat from South Lombok instead of sailing with your vessel, relocation charges may apply.

Day 1: Departure from Bali to Lembongan and Secret Gili Islands
The cruise departs from Serangan Harbour. Upon arriving at the meeting point, the crew will welcome you aboard to start your cruise with some refreshing welcome drinks, a short introduction to the vessel and your safety and then it’s time to get settled onboard and relax while cruising East. The cruise will pass by Nusa Lembongan and a short stop around the area is highly encouraged. This place is perfect for snorkeling, swimming, SUPing, or visiting a mangrove forest. At sunset, we will cruise towards South Lombok.
Day 2: Secret Gili Islands
The next morning you will find yourself surrounded by colorful sails dotting the horizon. These are tiny traditional fishing boats locally called “jukungs” on their morning quest for Tunas and Bonitas. You may also try your luck troll fishing in the early morning before your arrival on the Secret Gili Islands. Gili’s in Sekotong Bay consists of fourteen small islands within close proximity of each other. These paradise islands are luckily still unspoiled.
During your trip on the Secret Islands, you will have plenty of time exploring the island, swimming, or snorkeling. Unwind and relax with your family and friends or go solo to read a nice book or stroll along the white sand beach. Alternatively, you can visit the pearl farm in Gili Asahan to see the farming process of this only organic gemstone. As sunset comes closer, dine with freshly caught fish and enjoy a beach bonfire.
Day 3: Secret Gili Islands
The following morning, the vessel to moves closer to Gili Gede. This is the largest island among the Secret Gili Islands and offers a variety of activities for the adventurer in you: both on land and sea. You will definitely catch a bird’s eye view of the surrounding areas if you hike up the lush hills.
It is hard to miss the seashore filled with shells washed up on the coast and the temptation to take one home as you stroll around the beachfront is truly irresistible!
Maybe share a chit chat with a few locals living on the island. You may discover they are as curious about you as you are about their lifestyle and culture. The island offers some great snorkeling and scuba diving sites too. Spend another evening with a bonfire on the beach; or otherwise, enjoy an excellent Italian dinner in the only restaurant on the secret Gili Islands (excluded). Cruise back towards Bali after Sunset.
Day 4: End of cruise and arrival at Serangan Harbour
The day will start with breakfast and a last chance to exchange photos (and memories) with the crew. Bid farewell upon arrival at Serangan harbour in Bali.
