Oceans 5 dive resort organised another Beach and Reef clean up in the Harbor of Gili Air.
The last few week a lot of garbage floated around the Gili Islands. Nobody knows exactly where it comes from but the first thought is it comes from the rivers from Lombok after a heavy rain. A lot of this garbage ended up on the beaches of the Gili Islands or sunk on places where there was no current, like the harbor of Gili Air.
Oceans 5 organised a beach and reef clean up with their staff, steudents and fundivers and collected 6 heavy bags of rubbish. There is still a lot of work to do and if you want to join contact us at email@example.com.
Oceans 5 dive resort is creating now a space where people can relax. Around a tree there are 6 hammocks where people can enjoy there time.
So come and try our new hammocks and enjoy the beautiful day!
After a few years living on this island the story about the waves became more a fairytale. There were waves but not like the monster waves, 4 meters high, like the locals told us before. It looked like the story become bigger and also the waves with the time.
But today the fairytale became real. The surf break of Gili Air, close the Oceans 5 dive resort and the harbor, had enormous waves. The biggest waves were 3 till 4 meters high. Perfect conditions for all the experienced surfers to show us their tricks.
Lots of locals and tourist were waiting in the water, waiting for their perfect wave, waiting for their perfect run. A few of them were to scared to surf, the waves were to steep and to high. But if they went for a run, it was really excited to see them surf.
Surfing on Gili Air, Gili Islands is not a fairytale, its real!
