About this trip

Flores is a world away from the bustle of Bali, yet it takes just 90 minutes to get here and it’s for people looking for a different sort of holiday.  Outside of Labuan Bajo, the gateway to Komodo National Park, you’ll be lucky to find much in the way of night-life. You will find deserted white-sand beaches though, as well as curious locals, surreal volcanic lakes and beautiful sunsets (news.com.au, 2016)


We start from Labuan Bajo Harbour, then we go to Bidadari Island, Kelor Island (snorkeling time), Gili Lawa Darat (the most beautiful island at Komodo islands region and a perfect spot to snorkle and trekking with great view), Kalong Rinca and off course Komodo Island. Besides komodo, in this Island we can also look at cattle, buffalo, monkeys, partridge, etc. After that, the tour continuous to the Pink Beach. This beach is the best place to snorkle. The coral reefs, fishes and the beach itself is really beautiful. This beach is called Pink Beach because of the sand of this Beach is Pink. The Pink sands derived from abrasion of coral reefs across the beach which look pinky. 


Then we will proceed to Karang Makasar (Manta Ray Point) to see Manta Ray or various sea creatures across the Coral Reefs. Look for a glimps of wingtips breaking the surface, or the shadowy form of a manta gliding under the boat.

Itinerary

Island Hopping in Flores Islands
16-18
Day 1 1. Start from Labuan bajo at 8.00 AM to go to two beautiful spots, Bidadari Island and Kelor Island. Your main activity will be snorkeling and relax on the beach. You will have lunch on the boat provided by the crews. 2. After that you will proceed to Kalong Rinca Island to see thousands of Fying Foxes come from their nests at 6 pm. Then the boat will proceed to Waenilu Island and you will spend a night on the boat. Day 2 1. Early in the morning you will proceed to Rinca Island or Loh Buaya. Our activities in Loh buaya will be trekking to see komodo Dragons. In this island komodo would be easier to look because the range of the habitat is smaller than in Komodo Island (Loh Liang). Komodo in Loh Buaya is also more aggressive. Besides komodo, in this Island we can also look at cattle, buffalo, monkeys, partridge, etc. After that, the tour continuous to the Pink Beach. This beach is the best place to snorkle. The coral reefs, fishes and the beach itself is really beautiful. This beach is called Pink Beach because of the sand of this Beach is Pink. The Pink sands derived from abrasion of coral reefs across the beach which look pinky. Our third spot is to go to Komodo island or Long Liang. Destination to Loh Liang is optional and might be excluded if you wish to have longer duration at Pink Beach. We will end our day at Lasa island to rest and have dinner on the beach. Day 3 Early in the morning before breakfast, we can escort you to spend your morning to traditional Komodo village. This is optional based on your request and as one of our social movements to help introduce Komodo village. You can experience the traditional living of its people and purchase their handmade souvenirs too. Then we will proceed to Karang Makasar (Manta Ray Point) to see Manta Ray or various sea creatures across the Coral Reefs. Look for a glimps of wingtips breaking the surface, or the shadowy form of a manta gliding under the boat. After that, we will continue our journey to Gili Laba Island. This is one of the most beautiful island at Komodo islands region and a perfect spot to snorkle and trekking with great view, before we're going back to Labuan Bajo.
