So, which Gili island (or beach) to prefer?

Posted by travelinchen on 7/5/2011 at 17:00

Hey guys,
my partner and I are planning to spend a week on one of the Gili islands, but we're not sure which one yet. Here's what we need to take into consideration:
1. Money -- we're on a somewhat tight budget of 50 USD a day for the two of us. (clean room with private both, but cold shower is fine)
2. Seclution and Peace -- we want to relax, NO partying and preferrably backpacker people rather than families or spring break type people
3. Snorkeling -- where's the best offshore snorkeling?
Which island (or rather: area) would you recommend?
Are there accomodation you can recommend?
Thanks a lot in advance :)

This is an obvious one for me: Gili Air. Gili T is super spring breakish and I haven't been to Meno but it is supposed to be very mellow and pretty much families or honeymooners. Not sure if that is what you are looking for, but we thought Gili Air was a perfect in between.
