Snorkeling and having fun at Gili Nanggu (island) in Lombok, Indonesia

Gili Nanggu (S8.71957 E116.00938) is one of the beautiful island located at southwest of Lombok island. ‘Gili’ is means island in the local. After 20 minutes ferry ride, we reached the paradise island with the super clear water! Very excited!

The weather was cloudy and was good for snorkeling…but not good for photography, too bad…

Not wasting any minute, everyone started their own activities…some went for snorkeling, photography and other activities…
Some of our tour mates not forgot to taking photos with the youngest boat boy who brought us the island.

The best part of snorkeling in Gili Nanggu was, we no need to swim far away from the island, you can really enjoy the corals and the colorful tropical fish approximately around 10 meter from the beach.
This was Great!

You can see from the photo above that our snorkeling activities was only nearby the beach. This proved that the area is really unpolluted.

I was enjoyed my walk around the island for photo taking, the jetty was my favorite place of the island.
