Gili Meno is the smallest of the the Gili Islands and the most peaceful with no night life. There are a few rustic guest house to stay at and a few restaurants and bars over looking the main beach where the boat drops you off.

 

Gili Meno Bird Park is located just 400m from the beach front of Gili Meno Island. The bird sanctuary has on display over 200 birds including hornbills from Sumatra, peacocks, eagles and parrots with a maze of walkways, great for the kids and bird lovers. They also have on display a Sumatran crocodile, 2 cheeky monkeys and a Gili Meno Komodo Dragon.

There is an internet cafe close to Villa Nautilus on the east coast though the connection is very slow as they are still using dial-up connections.

There is a small lake on Gili Meno though not that exciting to see. There are a few basic restaurants close to the lake which are good for watching the sunset. The lake is home to some of the Gili Islands Komodo Dragons though during the day they are usually off sleeping. Best time to see them is early morning or very late afternoon before sunset. These include the Good Heart Steakhouse, The Forest Sunset Gecko and Diana Cafe.
