If diving is not for you this doesn't mean you have to stay out of the water! Many people enjoy the sights seen around the Gilis by snorkeling! Chances are very good for seeing favorites such as Turtles and Nemos!  In front of Manta Dive Resort, we have over 10 artificial reefs that have attracted many fish species to the area.  Ask how you can get involved in our Coral Gardening dives or just snorkel from shore and visit them at your leisure.  


Surfing in the Gili Islands is a big part of the modern local culture. All the Islands have surfing area, the best being in the South of Gili Air and Gili Trawangan. Boards are available to rent in many shops and the locals are always happy to take you with them!
