The best time to visit Gili Gede is from May to September. This is the dry season and while the climate of the Gili Gede, like its neighbouring islands, is typified by a monsoon-tropical atmosphere, rainfall is rarely as pertinent an issue during this time. High humidity and balmy climates are features of the island paradise throughout the year.
October onwards sees the dry season end and the monsoon rains come in. The stormy season, for the most part, lasts from the end of October to March. The lack of adequate infrastructural facilities on Gili Gede means that attempting to travel to Gili Gede during this time will result in logistical nightmares.
