Gili Air, "Island of Water," is the nearest island to Lombok and popular with guests on the mainland who visit for the day. This is also the most populated of the three Gilis, with just over 1,000 local inhabitants, descendants of Bugis, Mandar, and Sulawesi. The majority of accommodation here is locally owned and managed with only a few foreign-owned properties (unlike on Gili T).
Ozzy's Shop, Gili Air Hotel, and Gecko Cafe, behind the Perama Tours office, offer Internet. Rent bicycles at Ozzy's. The village clinic is behind the harbor. Ask for directions. At the time of writing, a nurse was on call from 8am to 6pm, but there is no way to know that this is always the case. The public boat harbor Koperasi, on the south coast bang in the middle, is open daily 8am to 5:30pm; look at the timetable on the wall for public boats.
