Gili Meno has about 500 inhabitants, who make their living from tourism, coconut cultivation and fishing, as fish is still abundant on the Gili coastlines. The underwater world is beautifully rich in colour. Rare species, coral reefs and giant turtles fascinate divers and snorkelers alike. The environment on Gilli Meno is still still preserved and inhabitants take great care that this remains the case. In 2012 they founded the Organization of Gili Meno, which is tasked with preventing and disposing of the island’s waste.
