Beautiful island sunset at the perfect time on the ocean from the beach

 

Gili Air is a small island located in north Lombok, Indonesia. It’s niche to many divers, yogis, and travellers. Whether you come here for one week, or one year; first time, or not. The constant evolution of scenery on this island means no days looks the same. The combination of light, temperature, and clouds makes every sunset a memorable experience for the eyes and the heart.

What are the best times for sunsets?

Either inland or on the beach of Gili Air, dry season or rainy season. The island is home to unbelievable colours throughout different times of the year. 

 

The rainy season: Not as bad as you would think. 

From November to March the Gili Islands welcomes the rainy season. The variety and depth of colours are the most astonishing at this time.

Rain occurs mainly in the mornings. Which means afternoons are usually dry. This makes it a perfect opportunity to grab a drink on the beach and admire the sunset. Gili Air will host the most beautiful skies between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. during the rainy season.

 The ever-changing clouds make every sunset memorable.

The right time to enjoy a sunset on Gili Air will vary. Sunset drinks are always a big thing on the island. Any time between 5:20 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. works for catching the sunset.

Between the land and the ocean

Our guests at Manta Dive Gili Air always say their experience after a night dive will stay forever in their hearts. It’s the best opportunity to watch the sunset. Not only from Gili Air, but also get to see the coast of Lombok, Gili Trawangan, and Gili Meno. 

The boat leaves Gili Air around 5:30 pm to go to Seahorse bay, which is the perfect moment for sunset time. It’s a great opportunity to get to see local people work from their boats and experience the sunset either on the boat or in the water. The dive in itself is quite shallow which is great for seeing the colours of the sunset underwater. 

 

It’s no surprise for you now, that sunsets on Gili Air are a unique experience for any traveller that comes to the island. Whether it’s on land or on the beach with your feet in the water, or even on a boat or in the ocean before a dive - it’s always an unforgettable moment to share with yourself or with some friends. 

 

At Manta Dive Gili Air, we love it when it is sunset time. Because that means it’s time for a night dive! Join us for a night dive and get 10% off if you book online

    Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece has said his third cousin Queen Elizabeth II was
    'one of the most wonderful people ever' as he prepares to attend her funeral tomorrow.


    The Crown Prince, who is the son of King Constantine II, the
    last King of Greece and Anne-Marie of Denmark, has revealed
    he will be attending Her late Majesty's state funeral on behalf
    of his father, who is too ill to make the journey.

    Speaking on the BBC today, Prince Pavlos, 55, said the Queen, who was his third cousin twice removed, always supported his family and
    showed them great kindness.


















    The Crown Prince of Greece told BBC News the Queen's death was a 'big loss' as he praised her
    empathy and sense of duty







    Prince Pavlos, 55, who is the third cousin twice removed of Her
    late Majesty, said the monarch was a great support to his family over the years


    He said: 'The Queen has always been a very kind person to
    my famiy.

    Always received with a smile. 

    'My parents were very well taken care of by her when we
    left Greece and lived in England for years after.'

    Prince Pavlos added his father was a 'confidant' for the Queen throughout their years in the
    UK, after he was forced to flee the country with his family following
    a coup.

    The 55-year-old added: 'The Queen was always receiving us
    with great smiles and family friendship. 

    'Always enquiring how things were going back home or elsewhere.
    One of the most wonderful people ever.'

    He went on to praise the late monarch's 'empathy, kindness and her service' - while adding the Duke of
    Edinburgh also showed him great respect over the years.








    The Queen (pictured with Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece
    at King Constantine II's 70th birthday party)
    was also chief of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, in which
    Pavlos served


     He said it was a 'big loss' to hear of the death of Queen Elizabeth II. 

    As a veteran of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards,
    a regiment the Queen was chief of, the Crown Prince said his connection to the
    late monarch was strong.

    'It was, for me, one of the most wonderful experiences to have served her directly,
    ' he said.

    'I feel like, not only am I part of her regimental family
    but also her real family.' 

    The Crown Prince, who is the eldest son of King Constantine II, said he would be attending Queen Elizabeth II's funeral tomorrow with his mother and
    his wife Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece.

    King Constantine, 82, suffered a stroke last December and was hospitalised in Athens.


    His bout of poor health followed a previous
    stroke in 2018.

    In more recent public appearances he has been pictured using a
    wheelchair and, according to his son, he is not well enough
    to attend the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in London.

    The Queen's relationship with her Greek cousins was
    always strong, even after the Mediterranean country abolished the monarchy in 1973. 

    A video of the Crown Prince and Princess's wedding in 1995 recently surfaced
    in which Her late Majesty, one of the guests,
    was seen fussing over the bride.

    As the family gathered for a group photo on the wedding day,
    the Queen was captured adjusting Marie-Chantal's train to ensure the photo
    was picture-perfect.

    Speaking about the sweet moment on the BBC
    today, he said: 'She obviously knew how to maintain the right
    decorum.'

    US Secretary of State Antony Blinken meets with Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto
    Zardari at the State Department on September 26, 2022


    The United States needs to keep engaging Pakistan despite lingering distrust over
    Afghanistan, with investment and climate cooperation key
    to reducing the South Asian nation's growing reliance on China, a study
    group recommended Tuesday.

    The group released its findings during a visit to Washington by the head of Pakistan's powerful military, General Qamar Javed Bajwa,
    a week after a trip by the civilian foreign minister, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.


    The study group, which did not involve the US government, included scholars and
    former US ambassadors to Pakistan Ryan Crocker, Cameron Munter and Robin Raphel, along with Husain Haqqani, Pakistan's
    former ambassador in Washington.

    Pakistan and the United States were partners in the Cold War
    and, officially, in the Afghanistan war.

    But American officials lost patience with Islamabad which they suspected of quietly maintaining support for the Taliban,
    who triumphed as US troops withdrew last year.

    "Instead of allowing existing differences to define the partnership, it may be time to recognize that both sides need to understand the other's interests so that they can then find a way to work on areas of mutual concern," the
    study group said.

    The United States must move beyond leveraging aid to change Pakistan's policies, a tactic that has been a proven failure.


    Islamabad, in turn, needs to accept "that all of Pakistan's problems, especially terrorism and militancy, cannot be laid at the door of the US."

    Pakistan has forged increasingly close relations
    with China, triggering warnings from the United States that Beijing -- seen as Washington's
    key global competitor -- will saddle the economically troubled nation with debt.



    The study group said that after previously linking the Pakistan relationship to
    Afghanistan or its historic rival India, the United States should avoid now seeing ties through the
    lens of China.

    Instead, the United States can "help build Pakistan's capacity for transparency and compliance" on Chinese loans and can reduce reliance on China by encouraging investment by US companies and others,
    it said.

    The United States can also focus on building climate resilience -- a key challenge for Pakistan, which was recently devastated by floods.


    While the United States wants to step back from Afghanistan, the study group said the
    need for counterterrorism cooperation with Pakistan "has if anything increased" due to the loss of
    US intelligence assets on the ground.

    "While Pakistan and the US often fail to see eye-to-eye when it comes to Afghanistan, China, or India, they do share mutual interests in seeking stability in the region, combatting the problem of extremism and averting armed conflict in nuclear South Asia," it
    said.

    Made it!

    India's Suryakumar Yadav successfully makes it
    to the crease


    India survived an unbeaten 106 by David Miller to clinch their
    first ever Twenty20 series against South Africa at home with a 16-run victory in the second match on Sunday.


    Suryakumar Yadav smashed 61 off 22 balls and put on a key 102-run stand with Virat Kohli, who made 49 not
    out, to drive India to 237-3 after being invited to
    bat first in Guwahati.

    In reply, South Africa finished on 221-3 after a threatening 174-run unbeaten stand
    between Miller and Quinton De Kock (69) as the hosts took an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.


    The third T20 in Indore on Tuesday remains the final match for both teams ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia starting October 22.



    KL Rahul (57) and skipper Rohit Sharma (43)
    put on 96 runs to lay the foundations of the mammoth total -- India's
    fourth highest in T20 matches.

    Suryakumar took over after the openers departed as he raced to his fifty in 18 balls to bring the packed home crowd to their feet.


    "Just thinking not to play him anymore; just play him on the 23rd (of October, when India open their World Cup campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan)," Rohit said of the in-form batsman, who hit his third successive half-century.


    "He is somebody who wants to play the game, wants to keep going out there and keep doing well. That is what keeps him happy and we want to keep him happy."

    He and Kohli, who also took on the bowlers in his 28-ball knock,
    tore into the opposition attack before the partnership ended with a mix up and
    Suryakumar's run out at the non-striker's end.


    Dinesh Karthik smashed an unbeaten 17 off seven balls as he finished with a flourish, hitting a four and
    two sixes in an 18-run final over.

    Earlier Rahul survived a lucky inside edge that missed his stumps for four and he kept up
    the attack with shots all around the ground.

    The openers got stuck into Anrich Nortje in a 21-run ninth over
    before Keshav Maharaj broke the stand with the wicket of Rohit,
    caught at deep mid-wicket.

    Rahul, who was named man of the match but said Surya "should have gotten" the award, reached his fifty in 24 balls with a big six
    off Aiden Markram, an off-spinner.

    But he soon departed lbw with Maharaj getting his second wicket.


    - Miller, 'one of the best' -

    South Africa suffered early setbacks after skipper Temba Bavuma got out
    for a seventh-ball duck off Arshdeep Singh who struck twice
    in his first over including Rilee Rossouw, also out for nought.


    A brief interruption in play due a floodlight failure did
    little to change the tourists' fortunes as Axar Patel sent back Aiden Markram for 33.


    But Miller then attempted to do something out of the ordinary as he became the leading run-getter for South Africa in the
    T20 format.

    He has 2,050 runs in 106 T20 internationals.

    "It shows why David Miller is one of the best T20 batters going around," Bavuma
    said of the big-hitter.

    "He is looking good, feeling good and we can draw a lot of confidence from his performance today."

    The left-handed duo of Miller, who hit his second T20 century in 46 balls,
    and De Kock played valiantly but the asking rate proved too
    much in the end.
