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

    China fired its most direct warning shot yet amid reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may visit Taiwan on Friday, saying
    that if the speaker's plane is accompanied by U.S.



    fighter jets, they would not rule out shooting them down.

    'If US fighter jets escort Pelosi's plane into Taiwan, it is invasion. The PLA
    has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi's plane and the US
    fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction. If ineffective, then shoot them
    down,' Hu Xijin, a commentator with the Chinese state-affiliated Global Times, wrote on Twitter.  

    Earlier China warned the U.S.

    against crossing a 'red line' as it released not-so-subtle warnings against the speaker,
    which China has reasoned is number three in line in U.S.

    government, from visiting Taiwan. 

    The U.S. must be prepared to 'bear all consequences' if Pelosi chooses to visit Taiwan, Chinese foreign minister Zhao Lijian said in a briefing
    Friday. 

    National Security Spokesman John Kirby said Friday the Pentagon has seen no indication of a military threat. 

    'We just don't have any concrete indications of something happening from a military perspective
    on the Chinese part,' Kirby said. 

    'There's no reason for it to come to come to blows, to come to increased physical tension. There's no reason for that because
    there's been no change in American policy,' he added.  

    The speaker has not confirmed whether she will visit the island democracy during an Asian tour that includes
    stops in Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.

    In response to a question about the potential Taiwan trip on Friday, Pelosi only said:'I
    don't talk about my travel because it's a security issue.' 






    Speaker Pelosi has not confirmed whether she will visit the island democracy during an Asian tour that includes stops in Japan, South
    Korea, Malaysia and Singapore






















    The speaker added: 'The President earlier this term talked about a strong emphasis on the Asia Pacific ...


    and the Congress of the United States will be part of
    that initiative.' 

    Still, tensions have mounted over the possibility, with the Chinese navy monitoring the USS
    Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier's activities in the South China Sea.


    The Reagan and its strike group left Singapore on Monday and headed to the South China Sea.


    The nuclear-powered warship was cruising about 185 km (115 miles) from the contested Fiery
    Cross Reef on Thursday, according to the South China Post.

    If the vessels continue in the direction they are headed, they will reach the Taiwan Strait. 

    Two other vessels - identified by Vietnam-based maritime observer Duan Dang as a
    Chinese Type 052D destroyer and a Type 054A frigate - were seen 27km and 23km
    away.

    Meanwhile the Chinese navy is conducting military exercises off its southern coast near Guangdong, following exercises in nearby Hainan province. 

    President Biden said last week the Pentagon thought a Taiwan trip was 'not
    a good idea.' 

    'Well, I think that the military thinks it's
    not a good idea right now,' Biden said in response to a question about Pelosi's reported
    trip.

    'But I don't know what the status of it is.' 






    President Joe Biden posted an image to his Twitter from a two-hour call Thursday morning with
    Chinese President Xi Jinping - the fifth between the
    two since Biden took office









    Xi warned Biden on the call, according to Chinese
    state media: 'Those who play with fire will only get burnt.



    Hope the U.S. side can see this clearly'







    The call comes as Taiwan ramps up its largest ever military drills while neighboring China
    isn't pleased with prospective visit to the island by House
    Nancy Pelosi.

    harbor in Yilan county on July 2


    Biden and President Xi Jinping spoke on the phone Thursday,
    where China claimed to have offered a stiff warning ahead of the unconfirmed trip. 

    Chinese state media released some excerpts from the call,
    including Xi telling Biden: 'Those who play with fire will only get burnt.


    Hope the U.S. side can see this clearly.' 

    The leader of the People's Republic of China also said he firmly opposes Taiwan independence and the interference of external forces.



    On the other hand, Biden expressed the U.S.
    stance on the issue has not changed, according to a read out of the meeting.


    'On Taiwan, President Biden underscored that the United
    States policy has not changed and that the United States
    strongly opposes unilateral efforts to change the status quo or undermine peace and
    stability across the Taiwan Strait,' the readout states.


    When asked to weigh in on whether this statement was an escalation in tensions, White House Press Secretary
    Karine Jean-Pierre deflected and declined to comment.

    'They had a very direct conversation. They've known each other for
    some time. President Biden has known President Xi for about four decades,' Karine
    detailed during her daily briefing on Thursday.


    Further pushed on if the call helped lower tensions, Jean-Pierre reiterated that the call was
    'straight forward,' but wouldn't comment further.


    The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) accused the
    White House of lying when Jean-Pierre said 'genocide' and 'human rights abuses' came
    up on the call.  

    'According to White House Press Secretary, ‘genocide' & 'forced labor' came up in last night's
    call between Chinese & US Presidents.

    That is disinformation,' MFA spokesperson Zhao Lijian said in a statement.
    'Pure lies,' he added. 

    China regards Taiwan as part of its territory, though Taiwan sees
    itself as a self-ruled territory.  The U.S. has long practiced 'strategic ambiguity'
    - deliberately not revealing whether or not it would come
    to Taiwan's aid should China invade and maintaining only unofficial relations.


    In recent years, those unofficial relations have grown tighter and Biden has repeatedly
    slipped up in committing to Taiwan's defense, before White House officials backtrack and say that the U.S.'
    posture has not changed.

    not a good idea right now,' Biden said in response to a question about Pelosi's reported
    trip.

    'But I don't know what the status of it is.' 






    President Joe Biden posted an image to his Twitter from a two-hour call Thursday morning with
    Chinese President Xi Jinping - the fifth between the
    two since Biden took office









    Xi warned Biden on the call, according to Chinese
    state media: 'Those who play with fire will only get burnt.



    Hope the U.S. side can see this clearly'







    The call comes as Taiwan ramps up its largest ever military drills while neighboring China
    isn't pleased with prospective visit to the island by House
    Nancy Pelosi.

    Biden and President Xi Jinping spoke on the phone Thursday,
    where China claimed to have offered a stiff warning ahead of the unconfirmed trip. 

    Chinese state media released some excerpts from the call,
    including Xi telling Biden: 'Those who play with fire will only get burnt.


    Hope the U.S. side can see this clearly.' 

    The leader of the People's Republic of China also said he firmly opposes Taiwan independence and the interference of external forces.



    On the other hand, Biden expressed the U.S.
    stance on the issue has not changed, according to a read out of the meeting.


    'On Taiwan, President Biden underscored that the United
    States policy has not changed and that the United States
    strongly opposes unilateral efforts to change the status quo or undermine peace and
    stability across the Taiwan Strait,' the readout states.


    When asked to weigh in on whether this statement was an escalation in tensions, White House Press Secretary
    Karine Jean-Pierre deflected and declined to comment.

    'They had a very direct conversation. They've known each other for
    some time. President Biden has known President Xi for about four decades,' Karine
    detailed during her daily briefing on Thursday.


    Further pushed on if the call helped lower tensions, Jean-Pierre reiterated that the call was
    'straight forward,' but wouldn't comment further.


    The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) accused the
    White House of lying when Jean-Pierre said 'genocide' and 'human rights abuses' came
    up on the call.  

    'According to White House Press Secretary, ‘genocide' & 'forced labor' came up in last night's
    call between Chinese & US Presidents.

    That is disinformation,' MFA spokesperson Zhao Lijian said in a statement.
    'Pure lies,' he added. 

    China regards Taiwan as part of its territory, though Taiwan sees
    itself as a self-ruled territory.  The U.S. has long practiced 'strategic ambiguity'
    - deliberately not revealing whether or not it would come
    to Taiwan's aid should China invade and maintaining only unofficial relations.


    In recent years, those unofficial relations have grown tighter and Biden has repeatedly
    slipped up in committing to Taiwan's defense, before White House officials backtrack and say that the U.S.'
    posture has not changed.
