Bali Smiling Express the Best Boat to Gili island

Plan your journey to the Gili Islands with Bali Smiling Express, a vacation destination favored by both domestic and international tourists. Each island in the Gili archipelago offers enchanting experiences from beachside huts to restaurants boasting stunning sea views. Enjoy the luxury of walking, biking, or exploring the islands with an exotic horse-drawn cidomo, free from the noise of motor vehicles. Moreover, the underwater natural beauty of Gili makes it an ideal spot for diving and snorkeling activities.

Explore Gili Trawangan: The Lively Party Island
Gili Trawangan, the largest among the three Gilis northwest of Lombok, enjoys fame as the ‘Party Island.’ While vibrant nightlife dominates, the island offers much more. Here, you can snorkel in crystal-clear waters, home to diverse marine life including turtles and colorful fish. Alternatively, you might cycle around the island or relax in the many seaside cafes and bars.

Gili Air: Your Tranquil Retreat
Gili Air, a peaceful haven northwest of Lombok, offers a serene escape perfect for those seeking quiet away from daily bustle. The island maintains its authenticity and pristine natural beauty with white sandy beaches and warm, clear waters. Ideal for snorkeling, beach yoga, or watching breathtaking sunsets, Gili Air provides a more authentic and intimate experience with its fewer, locally-integrated restaurants and accommodations.

Bangsal (Lombok): Not Just a Port
Bangsal serves as more than a simple docking point for ships. This area includes East Beach and West Beach, divided by a fleet of motorboats ready to ferry passengers to the Three Gilis: Gili Air, Gili Meno, and Gili Trawangan. The local Pemenang community often gathers here to enjoy sunsets and snacks, particularly the popular kerupuk pelecing. Rich in health-boosting minerals, the local seawater is reputed among residents to have healing properties.
