THE "GREEN GILIS" EIGHT ISLANDS ECOREGION

More info

The Eight Islands EcoRegion™ is an untouched archipelago in Northwest Sumbawa, encompassing eight pristine islands sitting on a forest of coral, surrounded by crystal clear water perfect for water sports such as diving, snorkelling, kayaking and stand-up paddling.

The islands vary in size from 1 to 500 ha with different characters; some are ideal for development, others for conservation or day-trip destinations.

The region has the potential to provide a wealth of fruit, vegetables and seafood. Eco Regions are working with the local government, community, permaculture, farming and fishing experts to determine the best sustainable agricultural and fisheries strategy.
