What to Expect
The One Day Southern Sekotong Island Tour is a 9-hour tour. The tour starts at 8 am. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in the private car rental and take you to the fishing village of Batu Putih. From the village you will take a fishing boat to the island of Gili Layar.
Gili Layar is a small resort island that rises out of the Lombok Strait. The island has several small bungalows and a restaurant. It has a laid back vibe with beautiful white sandy beaches and a coral reef that drops off suddenly into the deep ocean. There is an offshore current along the edge of the reef. If you choose to go snorkelling you can let the current pull you along while looking out for large fish and turtles.
In the afternoon the boat will take you across the strait from Gii Rengit. The island is larger than Gili Layar. There is an old pier where your boat will anchor. The reefs surrounding Gili Rengit offer another chance for snorkelling. You can find hard purple and red coral in the reef as well as hundreds of small fish. Before returning to Lombok you hop over to Gili Asahan where you will have lunch. At the end of the tour your guide will drive you back to your hotel.
