Say goodbye to Senggigi, get a taxi down the west coast of Lombok and stay on one of the southwest Gili Islands.
The Southwest Gili'sLocated off the south west coast of Lombok, these are the Gili Islands most tourist's don't know about, and therefore often referred to as the secret Islands. Relatively undeveloped, with pristine beaches, clear waters and vibrant marine life. These islands are the perfect place to escape to paradise. Great for snorkelling, diving and relaxing. Keep in mind they are may not have extensive facilities, so it is best to bring what you need, including cash. Only Gili Gede, Gili Asahan and Gili Nanggu have accommodation on the island. Others you can visit during the day
Enjoy the untouched waters and reefs around you! Go swimming, snorkelling or day trip to other islands nearby.

Lombok Family Itinerary Options
In the Lombok Family Itinerary #2, the later half of your holiday is spent in the south west Gili’s. You could also switch this for the Northwest Gili’s. The northwest Gili’s are more ‘touristy’, more developed and may have a few more things to do. If you are travelling as a family though, be careful where you choose to stay on the island as different area’s are more family friendly.
If you were after something a little different, you could try adding onto your Lombok holiday, a boat tour to neighbouring islands Komodo and Flores. Here you can explore more remote settings and see the Komodo Dragon. Perhaps you could start your holiday with a few days in Lombok, then get the boat from Lombok to Komodo and then Flores. From Flores you can fly to Bali/Jakarta to either continue your holiday or return home.
