As we approached the island on a small fishing boat, we were struck by its pristine beauty; powder soft white sand fringed by lush green palm trees, crystal clear turquoise waters dotted with a few catamarans and not a building in sight. What I saw was perfection.
The island is so relaxing and peaceful, I immediately felt happy and wanted to plan a future here. I had been on the island for less than an hour.
From the moment we sipped our welcome drink out of a fresh a coconut to when we boarded a small fishing boat for our return journey to Gili Air, everything was perfect.
