Luxurious Little Gili Meno

 Relaxing in Paradise

by Joshua Paget / for Eyewearthese.com / in Journeys

Our time in Indonesia included a short time in Gili Meno. The sleepy island in between the two party islands of Gili has some of the best beaches I have ever seen. Perfection. That is the only way I could describe the stay. Minus a rough boat trip to the island.

Let’s go to the Beach

The main reason for choosing Gili Meno was it’s reputation for the Beaches. Laying eyes on the deep blues and greens of the sea whilst feeling the soft sand between the toes was mesmerizing. These views were those out of a holiday brochure. I couldn’t quite comprehend that this was our life for the next few days.

Let the sun go down on me

Evening came, and so did a pleasant surprise. A picturesque sunset washed the island in a burnt orange. It was amazing how alluring the sun going down was! A natural everyday event, becoming one of the highlights of the trip. It’s moments like this where nature sends a reminder of how beautiful it is. An almost deserted island and a non man-made landscape allows us to escape from our modern day, metropolitan lifestyle.

Under the Sea

The island is renown for the turtles that inhabit the waters and the coral too. We loved the idea of catching a glimpse of this, so donned our snorkels and waterproofed our phones for photos. Unfortunately through the plastic waterproof case we couldn’t capture our experience to look back on as well as we wanted. The clear waters gave amazing views of the wildlife. We were also so lucky to be able to follow a turtle for a while.

Holiday Blues

 Holiday blues is a cliche, but I truly wish I could return. Any chance of getting back to this little island, and I will be on the plane over there. I think I will find it hard to find a place so tranquil, beautiful and an excellent change of pace. I urge everyone who may have the chance to go, to seize the opportunity.
