Lombok has been popular with its enchanting destinations such as Gili Trawangan and Gili Nanggu. However, today, I would like to introduce you one of the tourism destinations in Lombok, that has been more popular namely Gili Kedis. Gili Kedis is located in Central Sekotong, West Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara.
Gili Kedis has pristine nature which has not been discovered by many people. Its clear waters captivate visitors to stay longer there. There are plenty of healthy and gorgeous coral reefs inhabited by fish. In addition to its tourism potential, the access to Gili Kedis is also relatively easy.
There are two routes that you can choose to get to Gili Kedis namely through Tawun Seaport in Sekotong or through Lembar Seaport in West Lombok. The Tawun Seaport is not like any other seaports. It is only a beach. At the seaport, visitors can rent small boat with a capacity of 6 people. By paying only Rp 300,000 to Rp 500,000, visitors can also explore Gili Sudak, Gili Tangkong, and Gili Nanggu which are located surrounding Gili Kedis.
Gili Kedis is a small yet beautiful island. To visit the desert island, the trip takes approximately 10 minutes. The white sand spanning across the coastline looks incredibly amazing. Since it is an uninhabited island, there is not a single facility except two gazebos that visitors can use to relax. If you want to stay over at Gili Kedis, you can camp there. The peacefulness at Gili Kedis makes you feel like at a private island. It is recommended that you visit the island in the morning. In addition, don’t forget to bring your power bank if you want to charge your phone because there is no electricity at the island. We also recommend you to bring enough foods and drinks if you want to camp there. You can buy water surrounding the Tawun Seaport.
