In 2017, we dived in Bali. In 2018, we headed to Gili Trawangan, off Lombok, which is Bali’s eastern twin.
As usual, Sumer Verma (a.k.a. Luminousdeep) led this trip. It was as holidays should be – easy, breezy, with blue water and white sand. And gorgeous diving! The Gili Islands are known for their abundant turtle population, thanks to conservation efforts to protect the creatures. We also caught a glimpse of fields of delicate soft coral fans, coral walls with sullen moray eels, a sunken pier that has a couple of resident frogfish, and sandy bottoms with sleepy sharks.
With 3 or more dives per day, this trip was perfect for certified divers looking for an island getaway with family (there was plenty to do on Gili T. other than dive!), and those who got their PADI Open Water certification.
