Gili Island, located just off the coastal area of Lombok, is considered as one of Indonesia’s most visited places. The Gilis actually are three small islands visited by thousands of travel freaks each year. The isle offers peace, tranquility and ecstasy to the tourists by its blissful environment and fresh breezes.
The main travelling on the island is done via bikes and that is another reason why the island is so pollution free and nature friendly. Drifting across the island can not only provide the visitors with a chance to see places more clearly, but also add to the adventure and fun of the trips.
Since it only covers a really small landmass, it is not at all difficult to ride all around, but is the most amazing experience one can enjoy on the beautiful island. Bikes can be easily rented around $1 per hour and prove as the best transport in the area. Feeling the atmosphere and the fresh breeze from the sea adds fun and pleasure to the bike journeys and you can go almost anywhere you need.
WHY TAKE A BIKE?
The whole Island can be covered in less than an hour by bike, offering you the most spectacular sights on the way. Riding the bicycle for the Island tour is best in a way that you can stop anywhere, sit and snack, and then hop on again.
Once you have the bike for yourself, it’s time to go crazy and ride around. Cycling can be so much fun with friends as you can race and take turns. Most of the times, couples who take one bicycle to tour, end up fighting on taking turns. As the environment calls for a free ride, everyone must get his/her own bicycle.
The best part about riding a bicycle is how easy it is to handle as it can take you to the most narrow pathways, and can be parked anywhere.
Cycling makes it easier for you to see places carefully and you can fully take advantage of the ride to stop and shop where ever you want.
There are beautiful trails across the Islands that can be travelled by bikes. The rides add to the beauty of the trip as being the lightest and refreshing travel choice.
Riding the bikes can serve as a little workout and having consumed all the negative energy, leaving you with a refreshed mood.
Having ridden the bicycle for a fair time cuts of the laziness, and one can have a blissful night’s sleep. Spending a week on the islands can actually be considered as a fresh start in life.
The Gili islands are worth seeing with their breathtaking views and heavenly gusts of cool and fresh air. The best scenes on the Islands are the sunsets and strong waves touching the shores, producing pleasant sounds. The beauty of the place, though, is enhanced when traveled around on bikes. An evening with friends, racing and speeding on bikes in the middle of the Island, is something one can never forget. So gear up, and ride the Gillis.
