View mainland Lombok and Mt. Rinjani from the east of the islands and Mt. Agung of Bali off the islands’ west shores. Sunsets from the Gilis are a major photo taking attraction with people lining the north western beaches and readying their cameras. Other popular island attractions are the lookout with WWII bunker remnants & the turtle conservatory on Gili Trawangan, Gili Air’s swamp, behind Segar Villages, where monitor lizards commonly roam (in the wet season) and the turtle conservatory at Oceans 5 Dive Resort.
