A Lombok Yacht Charter is a great addition to a holiday in Bali or a visit to the Gili Islands. Lombok is especially suitable for short private charters for groups of friends or families with kids – cruising south toward the secret Gili Islands. Alternatively, Lombok and the Gili Islands can also be departure points for routes towards Sumbawa, Moyo island, and Komodo National Park charters.

The Gili Islands are one of the most demanded boat charter destinations around Lombok. However, the islands are located closely to each other and are only suitable for day trips such as birthdays or Hens and Bachelor parties. The Gili Islands are often departure points for longer routes including other islands in the south of Lombok. Sumbawa and Komodo National Park are worth visiting for a few days during a boat charter. The largest and busiest island, Gili Trawangan offers a vibrant nightlife, a variety of good restaurants, and various resorts. Gili Meno is much quieter and a perfect alternative for people who want to relax and disconnect. Gili Air is a combination of both.
Gili Air is closest to Lombok mainland. It is the second-smallest island and provides a healthy mix of seclusion and adequate services. There are enjoyable snorkelling and scuba diving sites around the Gili Islands that are suitable for all levels. The Gili Islands are a great destination to do a Scuba Diving Course before embarking on a private charter in Komodo or even Raja Ampat. The reef around the Gili Islands may not be considered as pristine divining. However, for beginners and children, the dive spots offer plenty to see, especially turtles. Tourism on these islands has boomed recently. But don’t worry – there are still plenty of deserted white sandy beaches and quiet spots. Gili simply means “small island” in the local language, Sasak. There are more than these the 3 Gili islands around Lombok’s coastline. For example, there are 11 more Gili Islands on the south-west coast. They are just around the corner along Lombok’s coastline.
A boat charter to Lombok’s west coast holds the island’s best-kept secrets: The Secret Gili Islands of Sekotong Bay. Gili Gede, Gili Nanggu and their eleven siblings feature a series of stunning bays set against a backdrop of green hills and fields. Unlike the more famous islands in the northwest of Lombok, the southwest Gilis are mainly unpopulated and off the radar for most tourists. Thus, we call them the Secret Islands.
Floating in the sparkling turquoise water, Sekotong Bay pictures a deserted beach idyll. There are many shallow reefs to explore, either snorkelling or scuba diving. Try your luck fishing, stroll along the picturesque beaches and feel the fine sand between your toes. Make a beach bonfire on a remote beach and enjoy a cold drink. In addition, there are several viewpoints on Gili Gede that you can hike. Have an unforgettable time of snorkelling, relaxing, and swimming through crystal clear waters on these hidden gems.
