Gili Air is a small island located in north Lombok, Indonesia. It’s niche to many divers, yogis, and travellers. Whether you come here for one week, or one year; first time, or not. The constant evolution of scenery on this island means no days looks the same. The combination of light, temperature, and clouds makes every sunset a memorable experience for the eyes and the heart.

What are the best times for sunsets?

Either inland or on the beach of Gili Air, dry season or rainy season. The island is home to unbelievable colours throughout different times of the year. 


The rainy season: Not as bad as you would think. 

From November to March the Gili Islands welcomes the rainy season. The variety and depth of colours are the most astonishing at this time.

Rain occurs mainly in the mornings. Which means afternoons are usually dry. This makes it a perfect opportunity to grab a drink on the beach and admire the sunset. Gili Air will host the most beautiful skies between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. during the rainy season.

 The ever-changing clouds make every sunset memorable.

The comfortable safety of dry season in Gili Air 

During the dry season, skies tend to be blue and the clouds become shy during this time of the year. Gili Air becomes home to more smooth and clear sunsets. Yet, the good sunset spots will never change. 

The right time to enjoy a sunset on Gili Air will vary. Sunset drinks are always a big thing on the island. Any time between 5:20 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. works for catching the sunset.

Gili Air would not be this magical island without a couple of secret spots where sunsets are the most amazing. Yet, secrets are made to be kept, we decided to share with you one of ours.

Between the land and the ocean

Our guests at Manta Dive Gili Air always say their experience after a night dive will stay forever in their hearts. It’s the best opportunity to watch the sunset. Not only from Gili Air, but also get to see the coast of Lombok, Gili Trawangan, and Gili Meno. 

The boat leaves Gili Air around 5:30 pm to go to Seahorse bay, which is the perfect moment for sunset time. It’s a great opportunity to get to see local people work from their boats and experience the sunset either on the boat or in the water. The dive in itself is quite shallow which is great for seeing the colours of the sunset underwater. 


It’s no surprise for you now, that sunsets on Gili Air are a unique experience for any traveller that comes to the island. Whether it’s on land or on the beach with your feet in the water, or even on a boat or in the ocean before a dive - it’s always an unforgettable moment to share with yourself or with some friends. 


At Manta Dive Gili Air, we love it when it is sunset time. Because that means it’s time for a night dive! Join us for a night dive and get 10% off if you book online
