The Gili Islands


Although Gili means ‘island’, the islands Air, Trawangan and Meno are what most people know as the Gili Islands. It takes a long ferry ride from Bali to get here, or with your own private Sailo yacht charter you’ll be able to enjoy the Gilis at your leisure. Why go to the Gilis? These still unspoiled islands offer incredible beaches as well as world class scuba and snorkelling. If you’re in Bali make sure to charter a boat rental to these beautiful islands off the northern coast of Lombok.

The secret Gili Islands


If the Gili Islands look like they might be too far for you, there is another ‘secret’ option. On the south west coast of Lombok, Gili Gede and Gili Asahan, known as the ‘secret Gilis’ are a great trip to enjoy sailing in Bali. These unspoiled islands are perfect for a look at real Indonesian life, with most locals relying on traditional lifestyles in contrast to the touristy neighbour. Unlike their well known cousins in the north of Lombok, tourism here is relatively undeveloped, but you’re much more likely to have the beach almost to yourself…


Nusa Penida


Just a short boat ride from the main island of Bali, you’ll find Nusa Penida. Thanks to its proximity to Bali there are lots of day trips here, and with lots of highly Instagrammable scenery you’ll find people queueing up for selfies in the popular spots. The most famous of which is Kelingking, known as the ‘T-Rex’. With towering rock formations hemming in a white sand beach, it’s a travel bloggers favorite. While you’re here, make sure to head to Atuh beach and broken beach too… Nusa Penida is a must visit when sailing in Bali!
