Gili Air is the most easterly of the three Gili Islands off Lombok.
Of the three Gilis, this is the island closest to Lombok. With Gili Trawangan rapidly becoming famous as a party island and Gili Meno primarily catering to couples who want to have their space, Gili Air with its relaxed pace of life attracts social backpackers who prefer to dive, meet other fellow travellers or simply want to chill out. Quite a number of partygoers after being tired from having crazy nights on Trawangan move over to Gili Air to do their dive courses in peace. The island still has more of a rural, established feeling than the other two, and it is no surprise that many locals seem to prefer living on Gili Air, and that it has the highest permanent population of about 1,800.
