By diving off Gili Air, you can experience anything from sites with beautiful topography and huge schools of fish, to amazing pinnacles with great current. Hang out in coral gardens with turtles around each corner or let yourself drift along long patches of reef in the stronger currents between the islands. But don't get too carried away by the larger sites. It is WELL worth going on a treasure hunt on the sandy slopes of Lombok. Go combing the sand for tiny little juvenile boxfish bumbling confused around amongst proud sea horses and breeding anemone fish.
If the hype of muck diving gets to you, try the ultimate macro dive in the Lombok ferry harbor. The visibility is nothing to brag about, but the creatures you find on this dive are rare and incredible strange and cool! Like Ghost Pipefish, ask to see one, they are nothing less than amazing. Ps. Dolphins are randomly spotted from the boat. From time to time Manta rays and the Oceanic Sunfish shows on dives. Keep your eyes open for a cool encounter!
Above water Gili Air differs quite a lot Gili Trawangan. Over the past years, Gili Air has become more popular with those wanting to escape the party atmosphere and buzz associated with Gili Trawangan. The island is tiny, but very relaxed and pretty. Like on Gili Trawangan, you will find no real roads here. Only sandy paths where the only type of transportation is horse carts and bicycles. You can find all types of restaurants and bars, but all with a really chilled atmosphere. When you are tired of hanging out in your hammock on the beach (which is what you do here) go searching for the secret little places in the back streets where the local food is cooked to perfection for cheap cheap bucks!
