Abdi is a friendly soul who rents boards (from 50,000Rp) and offers instruction (per day 300,000Rp, including gear and laughter!).
Blue Marlin Dive Centre
Gili T's original dive shop, and one of the best tech diving schools in the world.
The biggest and still one of the best dive schools on the island. It also seems to have the most fun.
An overly decorated reggae bar–cum-roadhouse with a top-end sound system, a killer live band (and the same set list) at least six nights...
Tiny, friendly little warung with a very short menu. They serve up a mean nasi campur and soto ayam here.
Lonely Planet review
Coco's is a stylish cafe ideal for a hit of Western-style city tucker. Great for breakfast (muesli, or try the English breakfast with Earl Grey tea) or a baguette, and the smoothies are heavenly.
