One the many things that the Gili Islands are famous for, is that they are surrounded by a magical underwaterworld. Indonesia is home of the 20% of the worlds coral reefs. Divers from all over the world come to experience the warm and clear idyllic waters and the amazing diversity of marine life. And with more than 25 dive sites, we cannot blame them.

And some big stuff that will blow your mind like, white and black tip sharks, blue spotted stingrays, schools of bumbhead parrotfish and sometimes even a manta ray or whaleshark pops up to say hello.
