– TREK TO THE FORESTS OF KOMODO –
Most tourists looking for things to do in Flores come to visit the island of Komodo, home to the famous Komodo dragons.
The best time to visit the island of Komodo is in the early afternoon when the big Komodo dragons are sitting lazily in the shade and the baby dragons are wandering through the wilderness.
– PADAR ISLAND –
The natural highlight of the Komodo islands! Padar island is famous for the viewpoint from where you can see the three beaches of Padar Island. One is white, one is pink and the other is a black sand beach. The best time to do the climb is in the early morning for sunrise. Be warned there are Komodo dragons on the island and they hang around in the shade of the rocks (which is where you will want to be).
– MANTA POINT –
Manta Point is one of the most famous sites for diving near Labuan Bajo, one of the best diving sites. The reason Manta Point is so popular is the strong nutrient-rich current that flows through the strait that attracts large schools of Manta Rays.

The beach gets its name from the red grains of sand, which is created from the grains brightly colored coral, that give the Pink Beach its distinctive color.
– KOMODOS AT RINCA ISLAND –
Rinca Island is actually the best place to see Komodo dragons. Like Komodo, if you want to see the Komodo Dragons you can join a hike around the island. The hikes are a lot shorter than on Komodo Island because the island is a lot smaller.
