I n north-western Lombok, the famed Gili islands, Meno, Air and Trawangan, are a draw for tourists from around the world. Their tranquil setting, clear turquoise waters and relatively untouched landscapes have kept visitors steadily rolling in for many years.

But while these three islands are stunning in their own right, to the south there lies another Gili; this one, known as Nanggu (pronounced nan-goo). The island lies just a few kilometres from the ferry port of Lembar. But, how different this little gem is to the bustling, slightly grimy Lembar: they might as well be on different planets!

Nanggu has become popular for many reasons; not only its close proximity to Lombok itself, but also for its laid back charm. Visitors cannot help but start to feel chilled. It’s the main reason people visit; to escape noisy traffic and touts, and to wake up to a beautiful sundrenched beach vista.
