I love the Gili Kondo, the place and view, is superb. what with the clear water.
there are several hut, our tour guide, did prepare for our bbq. with the view and full tummy, it spectacular.

but unfortunately, no clean water, so you might need to bring a box of mineral water from home or buy it in any store.

the toilet don't have any water, no point bathing, if you will continuing the swimming or snorkeling. if you wanna do your business, think fast and far away.

and please, protect our environment, no point if you just throw all the rubbish there, then complaining it's dirty. my family and i, we even pick up all the trash. but still, it is too many of it. and we kinda short of time. and also, teach your kid or any ignorance friends that starfish and coral is not a plaything nor a prop for their picture.

See several family letting their kids put a big rock on top of starfish, and threw it like a frisbee. and the parent letting them. we just saw it from far away, though that they playing with the pebble.

the place is beautiful, but it will be more stunning if people, keep their trash in.

Gili Kondo has a small vendor that sells instant noodles and hot coffee, other than that this place is a paradise to be here and read a book, dip into the water when you feel hot and relax. The sand here is great but my favourite is still the island that's opposite - Gili Bidara. Don't forget to visit gili tapan!!! Gili Tapan was a endless sand bank, and it was just incredible!!!

It takes patien to go there as we needed to drive around 3 hours to reach the beach to meet pak Jefri our boatman to get us to the island. It is part of our hoping island to 4 islets Kondo, Bidara, Kapal and Petagan. Petagan is a mangrove island. The boat can go into when the tide is high enough for the boat to pass. And that means the gili Kapal is so tiny which make your picture spectacular as if you are in the middle of no where come out from the sea. Our boatman took us around Petagan for snorkeling and fish feeding. Loved to see the fish. We spent most of the hours in Gili Kondo (actually it is Gili Bagek for officer who were lazy to wait for the tide to get low to put the sign in Kondo instead they put the sign of Gili Kondo in Gili Bagek together with the sign of Gili Bagek). As the sign of Gili Kondo is more easily seen instead of Gili Bagek, hence people name it Gili Kondo. Gili Kondo is to the south of gili Bagek. At low tide the two islets are connected by a 'long sand way'. People do not go to the real Kondo as there are many snakes stay there.
At weekend there are many visitors that will accompany you to visit "uncle". We can even camp there. If you want it more peace please come at weekdays. Bring your own food because the seller only come at weekend. There are snorkel, gogle and fin to hire too.
My friends have camp here a few times. Full moon & sunrise are funtastic here. We enjoyed it very much.
Tips: go with pak Jefri. His house is near the port. He built wash rooms for his passengers to clean with fresh water. His wife sells snack and nibles in their house. So you can buy while waiting for your turn to wash yourself. For moslem, you can also shalat in his house.

When travel to Lombok, head east to Gili Kondo and friends. Located near Kayangan Harbor, harbor to cross to Sumbawa island. Make sure you read the sign carefully as it is not largely written on the main road. In the area there are 4 islands which can be hopped on: Gili Petagan, Gili Kapal, Gili Bidara and Gili Kondo. Gili Petagan will give you beautiful mangrove scenery (go early in the morning to be able to sail through the mangroves). Just outside the mangroves, you'll find quite large snorkeling spot. Hop on to Gili Kapal to be mesmerized by the clear blue sea and sky. Gili Bidara and Gili Kondo offer more snorkeling spots. The corals are various in shape but not really in colors. However, limited facilities provided in the islands, so make sure before you sail, ask the boatman to help you provide lunch and water. Price to charter a boat (up to around 6 persons): 800,000 rupiahs, included lunch and snorkeling gears (at first you'll be offered higher price, so try to bid for cheaper one). P.S: bring your own snorkeling gears if you own any. From my observation sadly there are no hotels or homestays around, so you have to travel around 1,5 - 2 hours from Senggigi one way.
