We weaved our way around the coral reef and picked up a buoy
at 8.00am this morning just off the pier at Gilli Air, a small coral island close
There are three Gillis
Islands and they all look
very pretty with white sand beaches and colourful Indonesian boats dotted
around the shoreline. There are no cars or motorcycles on the islands, just a
few bicycles and a couple of horse drawn carts.
The water is very clear and the diving is reported to be
excellent, with an array of reef fish and macro life such as seahorses and pipe
fish and there are professional dive centres on each island.
We plan to have a days rest and maybe book up a dive as well
as take a walk around the island and sample the local food.
