he name “Gili Islands” is a misnomer, because Gili simply means “small island” in Sasak.
As a result, most of the islands around the coast of Lombok have Gili in their names,
although confusion is averted by referring (in English) to the other Gilis around the Lombok coast by
their proper names only.
The Islands are located in the Lombok Strait, to the immediate northwest of Lombok.
Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small islands or Gili island triplets,
Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air just off the northwest coast of Lombok Indonesia.
They extend outward from a tiny peninsula called Sire near to the village of Tanjung on Lombok.
Bali lies about 35 km to the west of Gili Trawangan, the islands’ most westerly member.
Both Bali and Lombok are easily visible from the Gilis in clear weather. Mount Rinjani,
Indonesia’s second highest volcano, is close by on neighbouring Lombok, and dominates the views towards the east.
