You can join a privately chartered boat snorkel tour to three sites and lunch on Gili Meno with a 99 per cent guarantee to see turtles! A tour is easy to book and approx $10USD per person from the many operators along the beachfront. Alternatively, you can get in contact with the ever-smiling Rizal +62 (0) 853 3760 8190 to book a tour in advance. For the more adventurous-minded, you can paddle out in the water directly in front of Legends Bar and continue straight to find the reef beneath you. It is a bit of a swim and you must go beyond where the waves break at the dropoff point to find some beautiful coral gardens. You can rent a mask, snorkel & fins there for 40,000IDR per set.
For the mermaids and mermen among us, scuba diving around the Gilis is a must. We recommend 3W Dive, Blue Marlin, Manta or Ocean5. Fun dives are around 450,000IDR if you’re certified, or you can enrol in an open-water course for 5,500,000IDR.
