The Hideaway Gili Nanggu Trip

Secret Beaches, Colourful Corals and Castaway Isles

A highly-recommended day-trip from Sudamala Suites & Villas, Lombok is a trip to the largely undiscovered ‘southern Gilis’. The path to the Gili islands off Lombok’s northwest coast is well-trodden. However, down south you will rediscover the true meaning of the laidback, tropical island experience.

Your Sudamala chauffeur will take you through the old port of Ampenan, past the verdant rice fields of the southern hinterlands, to the south-west corner of the island; an area known as Sekotong. Here, just off shore, are a cluster of 13 sleepy, idyllic tropical islands.

A local outrigger boat will take you over to the islands where you can laze on the beach, snorkel and dine at your leisure. Snorkelling reveals a rich, colourful array of corals and marine life. Gili Nanggu, Gili Sudak and tiny Gili Kedis (a screen-saver type tiny atoll with a few palm trees and powdery white sand) may all be visited and will provide you with the memories, and most importantly, the selfies, necessary to make your friends completely envious…

On the trip back to Sudamala you’ll stop at Labuapi, a wood-carving village, and Banyumulek, home of Lombok’s trademark pottery. Try your hand at pottery and purchase some beautiful locally-crafted pieces to take home.

The Hideaway GiliNanggu Trip is a full day tour and includes includes Private English-speaking Driver & Vehicle, Private Boat Charter, Fins &Snorkles, Lunch Box, Cold Drinks, Towels & Entrance Fees
