GILI AIR GUIDE

MAY 2020

How to get around

Arriving in Gili Air

As some of you may already know, Gili Air is famous for being “no-motorized vehicle” island.

If you arrive to Gili Air with heavy luggage, you could take a horse-cart (“cidomo”) to take you to Tipsea Turtle for about 150.000 IDR or walk!

Tipsea Turtle is located within a 20-mins walk from the harbor towards the north side of the island, and you could easily get through either by the ocean side or through the middle of the island.

Getting around

The only ways to get around are by renting a bike or walking. The prices of bike rental are fixed by a partnership of all providers on the island and go as beyond:

1 day – 50.000 IDR
2 days – 80.000 IDR
3 days – 120.000 IDR


Most of the roads on the island are cyclable, with a few exceptions of paths along the beach.
