„Snorkelling here reminds me of snorkelling in Terengganu in 1990. It's 2015 now. Reefs are in tip-top conditions and fish population is healthy and thriving, the locals don't fish bomb anymore. I look forward to return!"
Guest HolidaylettingsHolidaylettings
„The reefs around Gili Asahan are pristine. I have seen plenty of reefs before but the ones around Gili Asahan are top notch, without a doubt. You don't even have to take a boat to go snorkeling. It's right in front of your bungalow! If you're not too much into water activities, there's still plenty of things to do. Relaxing on the beautiful beach, climbing through the jungle to the top of Gili Asahan or doing yoga with probably the best view you ever had (amazing sunset view from the yoga sala!!! Absolutely breathtaking!)."
Guest HolidaylettingsHolidaylettings
„Great to be able to have use of the kayaks and snorkel equipment included as there is good coral just off the beach and the water is calm enough you can easily kayak. With a decent pair of shoes at low tide it's possible to walk around the whole island. Sunsets are stunning!!!"
HelenAirbnb
„The snorkeling spots are everywhere just in front of the resort. Very nice. They provide free snorkeling gears, games, and wifi for free. There's also a place for a fireplace in front of the restaurant."
IndahAirbnb
„You don’t need a boat ride for snorkeling, just walk to the beach and plunge into the warm sea. The reef, where you’ll find wonderful corals, turtles and all kinds of barrier fish, is just around the corner! You can walk the island in two hours and enjoy a wonderful landscape from the hill. A perfect spot for anyone who wants to relax."
