Getting Around

Walking & Cycling

The Gilis are flat and easy enough to get around by foot. Bicycles, available for hire on all three islands (per day 50,000Rp to 70,000Rp), can be a fun way to get around, but sandy stretches of path mean that you will spend time pushing your bike in the hot sun.


We cannot recommend using cidomo (horse-drawn carts) due to the significant questions about the treatment of the horses.


Recently introduced, public fast boats run almost hourly in daytime on a route linking Gili T, Gili Meno, Gili Air and Bangsal; they cost 85,000Rp. This makes it easy to hop from one Gili to another.

There's also a slow daily island-hopping boat service that loops between all three islands (15,000Rp to 50,000Rp). Check the latest timetable at the islands' docks. You can always charter boats between the islands (350,000Rp to 400,000Rp).
