How to Get From Gili T to Gili Meno

Gili T is an awesome party island, as I’ve said, but if you’re over that way I’d strongly recommend you go to Gili Meno too. Getting from Gili T to Gili Meno is easy.

How to get to Gili Meno

The easiest and most popular way to get to Gili Meno from Gili T is to walk down to the harbour, to the white building next to the fruit shop, and buy a ticket. The Gili Island Hopping ticket is 35k one way (£1.81) and 70k return. Any maths minds out there will see there is no saving. But if like me you manage to lose the return ticket on Meno, you get to pay 105 instead.

The journey from Gili T to Gili Meno takes around 30 minutes and you’ll be rewarded for your efforts with views like this…

The Gili Meno to Gili T island hopping boat also goes to Gili Air afterwards.

You can bring all your luggage on the boat to stay on the island, or you could just go as a day tripper, like I did. It leaves at 9:30am and comes back at 3:20pm – the perfect amount of time to get a feel for Gili Meno.

How to get from Gili T to Gili MenoNot much! And that’s the beauty. I walked round the circumference which took an hour. Then I saw a man collecting flip flops off the beach so decided to help with the clean up. Then I sat in a hut on the beach for a few hours reading and eating Nasi Goreng. There were some good waves and I saw a few dive shops too but the whole point of Gili Meno is to relax, take in the beautiful paradise surroundings and chill out. I’m getting real good at that.

I was at the harbour where I was dropped off at 3pm. Just enough time for an ice lolly to lick while I was waiting. The boat was dead on time at 3:20pm and it took about 20 minutes to get back to Gili T.

Easy and as you can see from the photos, well worth it!

      Thanks Jen! Had a great time picking them all up, but it was also sad how much stuff gets washed up on these paradise beaches. :(

    Nice scenery but less well maintained and there are still many that need to be repaired
