The swing in the sea

Hi there,

Travelling to Gili T for 5 nights in August. I keep seeing a picture of a swing in the sea. Called the ombak swing perhaps? Looks like a lovely picture opportunity at sunset. Does anyone know anything about this? Isn't it crowded at sunset with peoole with the same idea?

The ombak swing is situated at Ombak Sunset Hotel. August is still peak tourist season, so Gili T will be crowded around that time. But, the hotel is quite far from the main strip, where most bars and restaurants located, so, it'll be tolerable I guess. Plus they have three swings there.
