    Well i did my solo trip here during end trip 2020. Absolutely Gilis island are easy to access even solo trip. Based on my experience here the results were :

    Pros :
    - easy to access by solo trip
    - cheap homestay and hotel
    - good variation of meals
    - the most complete facilities between 3 gilis island
    - helpful local people
    - The road must be smoother and good instead of the other gilis island

    Cons :
    - Expensive meals, better to bring your own snack. The price can be doubled in the island
    - Many dead coral reefs
    - Not worthed to do dive a lot here, and dissapointed for rubish under the sea
    - So crowded, not suitable for someone who wish calm and peace condition

    Hope my review can help you for your next holiday.
    Ciao....

    Even though there's not much to see the locals have worked so hard to keep the sanctuary alive to help the suffering turtles. The experience was very moving and changed my life. I did a TED talk on it in Indonesia at a school and have been donating money to the aid since 2010 and from the earthquake I'm still trying to gather money to donate to help them. This area should be conserved and taken care of and they are important. They clean the beaches and only the tourists can fund their care. Because of my support for them I was even allowed to help and host the annual Sea Turtle release. This was an amazing experience and I very much recommend it.

    I usually don't mind a mosque and their call to prayer...but here it seems to go on and on, whole sermons being broadcast, it's deafening noise... probably as a counter measure to all the equally noisy bars haha

    The worst trip ever!!! No seats for everybody. Small boat and uncomfortable. If you want to die of disgust, this is your boat...

    My IDC course with Holly and Justin exceeded my expectations. Having to make a career change in my late 40s, I was a bit apprehensive about going back in a classroom and study. But with their experience, professionalism, passion for teaching, and support, not only they made that course look easy, they also made it so much fun. I can't thank them enough!

    After being off diving for almost 2 years, he took such good care of me, gave me the refresher course I needed, and planned some amazing dives! With the pandemic affecting much of the island, it was like having my own underwater tour guide, Francisco showed me so many different fishes and cool spots, helped me capture some unreal footage on a GoPro he borrowed from a friend, and was always professional throughout. Muchas gracias para todo Francisco, really, thank you! Hope we get to dive again someday.. 🤙

    Arrived in Gili with no plans and before I knew it I was sitting at the bar at Pesona signing up for my scuba course.

    I had Pipp as my instructor and she is fantastic. Due to covid, I was the last student so I got a lot of one on one attention which made everything so easy.

    I can wait to go back and do some advanced courses.

    Dive Central Gili provided me with an experience I will never forget!

    We completed our Open Water Diving with Greg at DSM and cannot recommend this diving school enough. Greg was such an informative teacher and not only provided all of the information required for diving but also gave us a proper insight and some history about the island of Gili T and gave us some fantastic restaurant reviews too! So all in all Greg is a really great guy, understanding, patient and a very capable trainer. We felt at ease at all times both in the pool and then in the open water and learned quickly. As a result we got to enjoy 3 amazing open water dives. Definitely visit here if you want to get some great quality diving training and experience.

    I did the advanced open water course with elin and it was verry good. It was verry personal and she helped me a lot with my bouyancy. I feel a more complete diver now. Verry relaxed and open atmosphere. Although the focus was on learning, the marine life was exceptional!

    In October my partner and I did several dives with Uber Scuba, my partner completed his Advance diving course and I fun-dived. I am qualified to Dive Master and felt I learned alot myself from the knowledgeable instructors who want to show you a great time 'under the sea!', especially Steve who will take the time to make sure you feel confident and seek out marine life, coral and points of interest he knows you might enjoy. Would highly recommend to learners and experienced divers.

    M U S T R E A D T H I S C O M M E N T !!

    This is BY FAR the best scuba diving center in Gili! They speak Spanish (Jessy is the perfect teacher), German, French, English. The teachers make it friendly, we felt extremely confident since the start! It was our first experience and was an incredible one!! Thanks a lot! We'll be back for sure!

    Muchísimas gracias Jessy por estas clases, nos transmites la confianza para no estar preocupados en ningún momento y disfrutar de la experiencia al máximo!
