Gili Meno – an underwater wonderland

On my way to the Rinjani volcano I spontaneously decided to spend a couple of days on the tiny island Gili Meno, right off the coast of Lombok. It took less than half an hour on a small boat to get to this touristy yet quiet island that is so small (about 1km in diameter) that the ban on motorized vehicles is not a problem, but very welcome.

I found a place to stay close to the beach and went snorkeling straight away. Even in the fading light of the evening it was extremely beautiful under water – lots of colorful coral and fish to spot and to observe.

Possibly the best place, also for diving, that I’ve been to on my trip! So that’s what I did the next day – the water was phenomenally clear and I saw a lot more coral and small fish, but also turtles and a shark. A very successful good bye to the tropic underwater dreamworld!
