This small island is the perfect place to come relax, with many yoga and diving studio, there is also beaches all around to take sunbath and swim. Only bad point : really touristic.

Gili T has a bit of a reputation as a party island but we found it really relaxing and chilled out. It's well worth doing a snorkelling day trip during the start of your trip (ours was 150K pp) to get acquainted with the other islands too. We were glad we went with Gili T - not too quiet, not too busy!

Highlights:
*Turtle point (toward north of island) where you can swim/snorkel on the beach, get up and close with turtles and (if you swim out a little further) see some awesome coral and fish. I did see a couple of jellyfish so would recommend surf shirt/pants for protection.
*Cats everywhere, and the friendliest cats you'll meet! Gili T is a bit of a cat island, and many seem to be well cared for by Cats of Gili. Be sure to stop by their shop and support them (also worth buying treats for the local cats)
*Street food market at night - you can pick up cheap and delicious eats, that are super authentic.

Tips:
*If you intend to 'bike' around the island, just note that a lot of the north part of the island is just sand and not path, so you'll be trekking through quite a bit of beach to get around.
*The boat ride to the island (even though it is fast boat) can be really hot and unpleasant. If you can, try booking a boat with aircon like Eka Jaya.

Alas, me being here does not help but I came to these islands in 1998 and the difference now is unbelievable. You can now cycle all the way around and there is hardly a single area that is not built on. Bars and dive huts and boats and people are everywhere. This has led to the entire coast line having around 100 foot of dead coral to cross before you see the fish. The turtles are still here but the other wildlife is dwindling.
Freshly caught fish is now at an absolute minimum with the vast majority being shipped in frozen from Lombok. The only fresh caught fish was baby lobster and prawns. Please do not eat these as it will only encourage the depletion of these stocks further.
That said there are still turtles here ( they return to the same beaches every year to lay eggs) and fish to swim with when you swim out far enough and I am sure for a party island this is great to be at.
On the whole though it is dreadfully sad to see and I imagine within the next 10 years this island, and the close by G Air & G Meno, will be destroyed by over tourism.
