Floating just north of Lombok, surrounded by turquoise waters, lie the Gili Islands; Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. Home to some of the best snorkelling and diving in Indonesia, the Gili Islands have become synonymous with adventure travel. While the archipelago was once considered an off-the-beaten-path destination, the islands have grown in popularity and are now a mecca for water-based adventure travel.

If you want to immerse yourself in the coral kingdoms of the Gilis, snorkelling is automatically covered on Webjet Travel Insurance Travel Safe policies, while for those wanting to dive a little deeper, scuba diving between 30-50 metres can be added on for an additional premium* on the Travel Safe Plans Only.

Snorkelling and snowboarding are well-known and loved for a reason. But if you’re wanting a lesser-known adventure activity, sandboarding may be just the ticket. Namibia’s Swakopmund and Walvis Bay are by far the most spectacular places to do it.

There are many sandboarding destinations around the world, but few are as impressive as Namibia’s – with some of the tallest dunes reaching reaching heights of 300 metres, making them the tallest in the world. Standing atop these towering dunes is not for the faint-hearted, but with 360-degree panoramic views across the arid desert, this memory-making experience is one you won’t forget anytime soon.
