It was a day like any other on Gili Trawangan.  I went to the beach, had a couple delicious meals, drank a coconut, snorkeled, rode my bike, and pretty much relaxed.

I have already been on the Gili Islands for over 10 days, and have already been blown away by the beauty of these islands.  I’ll never forget the first sunset I saw on Gili Air last year, and I think to this day it was the best sunset of my entire life…

My friend and I made our way over to the sunset side of the island.  We had both watched the sunset at different bars along that side, so we continued further until we hit Ombak Sunset Resort.

We grabbed a beanbag, ordered happy hour cocktails, and had no idea what was going to happen next.


I could already tell it was going to be different than the others…


The colors just keep getting brighter and better.


The reflections on the water could not have been more perfect for pictures.
Then it was time to get the class “Swing Shot”


Pure Euphoria.



Only a few more minutes for pictures…


The time for great pictures was over, but I could not have been happier with how some of these pictures came out.

Where is your favorite place to watch the sunset?

      I thought about getting my Diving certifications here, but I think I’m going to wait a year or two until my hearing condition goes away. This place does look like the perfect spot to learn!

      Thanks Sally! It was truly incredible. This is my third time back to the GIli Islands. I love this place. I might end up staying here for another month, but I’m not positive. I took these with a Nikon D3300.

      Thanks man! Yeah from my experiences in Indonesia, the best sunsets are in the Gili Islands. Something about this place makes them so amazing. I still havent ventured over to Java yet though. I’m hoping within the next year I’ll make it there.
