Gili Kendis, A Beautiful Island in Lombok
So far, tourists only know Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air. But there is one more island that should not be missed when visiting Lombok. Gili Kendis, a beautiful little island in the cluster of Gili Lombok.
Enchanted Small Island
Gili Kendis is located in Sekotong Tengah, West Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB). Although the size is smaller than the other Gili, the panorama should not be underestimated. Because it has a stretch of white sand and crystal clear sea water, Gili Kendis should be included in the list of natural attractions that you must visit in Lombok.
The types of marine life in Gili Kendis are more numerous and varied than other Gili in Lombok.
With these various marine ecosystems, you can snorkel and enjoy the underwater beauty that is hard to forget. In addition, Gili Kendis offers views of a stretch of coral near the island which is filled with small fish.
Not Many Travelers Visit This Island
Because it has not been visited by many people, the beauty of Gili Kendis is still very well preserved. In addition, this island can also be an alternative to relax your mind from a strict and tiring daily routine. By utilizing the trees there, you can lay down and enjoy vacation time while relaxing and joking with fellow travelers.
How to get to Gili Kendis
There are two ways to get to Gili Kendis. First, you can take a boat through the Port of Tawun or Port of Lembar. You will take about an hour to get to Gili Kendis.
On the way to Gili Kendis, there is a tourist spot that is famous for the beauty of its coral reefs, namely Gili Sudak. Usually, before arriving at the location, tourists will be invited to enjoy the beauty of Gili Sudak first.
If you are already on Gili Sudak, you will need just 10 minutes to reach Gili Kendis. You will see an island surrounded by white sand with several trees in the middle of the island.
After arriving, you can play with clear water. In fact, you can also set up a tent and spend the night there. However, because there is no local settlement that can provide equipment to stay overnight, you have to prepare various needs yourself.
