Gili-Meno gili meno #

The three most famous Gili Islands are Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, Gili Air (direction east --> west). The smallest one, Gili Meno, is only two kilometers long and one wide. It's possible to walk around the island along the beach or paths of Gili Meno in under three hours. It is also the only Gili Island where is a salt lake on it. Like on the other Gili Islands, there is no motorized traffic allowed. That's why the means of transport are horses. Gili Meno is the most quiet one of the three, hence it is also called the "Robinson Crusoe Island". When snorkling you can see many colourful fishes and turtles.
