Take advantage of the numerous bike rental shops in close proximity to Scallywags. On Gili Air you can rent bikes from Scallywags

Glass bottom boat hire

If getting in the water is not your cup of tea, you can still see what it has to offer, whilst staying dry. The glass bottom boats take you over the reefs, where you can see the beautiful colours of the coral, the schools of fish, and the turtles slowly munching on the algae.

Surfing (Gili Trawangan only)

We know that surfers don’t like to give away the secrets of where the surf spots are, but we will let you in on a little secret. Gili Trawangan has waves! It is a fast right-hander, and it can really pump when the conditions are right. It is a reef break, so booties can come in handy. Surfboards can be rented just in front of the break. Gili Meno and Gili Air also have some waves, but these are accessible only by boat.



Why not get even more relaxed on your holiday and go to a yoga class. There are yoga studios in both Gili Trawangan and Gili Air, and have a range of yoga styles on offer, such as hatha, vinyasa.
