Situated midway between Gili Trawangan and Gili Air, Gili Meno is the smallest and least developed of the three Gili islands.
Peanut-shaped, with a brackish seawater lake towards its western coast, this arid island is ringed by a good selection of places to stay and is the most affordable of the three islands.
As with the others, Gili Meno is encircled by a rather pretty white sand beach, and, as with Gili Air, there is some pretty good snorkelling to be had.
While it is the least developed, it still attracts a regular crowd and is especially popular with families attracted by the fairly safe waters and low country vibe — unlike Gili Trawangan there's not much of a Gili Meno clubbing scene!
Gili Meno is also home to a dilapidated bird park which by rights should either be renovated or shut down. The birds that are left, apparently from a former glory day, are kept in a pretty deplorable state. It's sad to see something that in its prime would have been a worthwhile attraction but is now in such a sorry state.
