We all know that Indonesia is on top of everybody’s list right now when it comes to planning a beach vacation .If you are looking for a quiter time by the white sand beaches and blue water then you must consider this beautiful island close by Bali.A speed boat can take you in two hours by giving you a lifetime experience while you sit and enjoy a bottle of beer with great music on the boat.
Here’s why you must visit Gilli Island next time you plan your holiday to the Indonesian paradise.

Imagine, you are in an island where there are no cars but you can rent bicycles or hire the horse taxis to move around the island. So, if you hate noise pollution and chaotic traffic then definitely you will love this island.

In Bali you will spend most of your time at the pool party facing the beach but you won’t come across a beach like Gilli Island with crystal clear blue water and white sand beaches. Imagine a sunset by a beach like this!!
3) Go Snorkeling with sea turtles
If you are on a short two-day visit to the island then instead of scuba-diving you could go snorkeling. All you have to do is rent out the oxygen tank and other equipment’s and you are ready to explore underwater by yourself without taking any classes.
4) Go Kayaking
Go Kayaking if you are an adventure junkie and if you are lucky you might end up paddling with sea turtles next to you.
5) Explore the island on a bike
