Gili Trawangan –
The day starts quite early for me. While the beachroad is quite busy during the day, Gili T. looks deserted at sunrise. I walk along the beach and get an early chance to take some photos. I feel much better today compared to yesterday… Since I am already near the office for the watertaxis I check the departing times – unfortunately the boat is fully booked for tomorrow morning. The next one is scheduled for 15:00. This could give me time for another scuba dive. After having breakfast with Elke we get us the watertaxi tickets and walk to the meeting place for the snorkeling. While we still have to wait a little for some guys arriving late, I briefly go to Manta Dive next door to put my name on the list for tomorrow’s dive at Manta Point.
Since snorkeling tours are offered by many organizers, the people get simply split up for the available boats and and go successively to the different spots at Gili Air and Gili Meno. There is a short break on Gili Air for having lunch in between all the spots we visit. To me, Gili Air seems to have a much quieter atmosphere like Trawangan. Air in high-season is probably comparable to Trawangan in the off-season.
