Indonesia :: Lombok : Gili Meno

The smallest and quietest island in the chain is Gili Meno. There are less accommodation options that neighbouring Gili Air and those that are there tend to be more up market. There is also a bird park on the island.

Takat Malang and Simon's Reef
Malang reef between Gili Meno and Air offers a plateau at around 12 meters that drops away to around 40. There are several big coral heads with some impressive canyons, overhangs and swimthroughs. Plenty of healthy coral, sponges and gorgonians to be found here along with a vast array of marine fish. Simon's reef, which is close by, also offers similar action with eight big coral bommies in a rough figure of eight formation.

Meno Wall
The soft coral carpeted wall drops to around 22 meters and is home to all manner of crusteaceans. Some big groupers and turtles are often seen at this spot which is also a popular night dive destination. Spanish dancers and cuttlefish are the delights after dark.
