A precious jewel in the Indonesian archipelago, the island Flores has a rich cultural history, breathtaking natural wonders and is blessed with exquisite and innumerable options for adventure tourism.

Part of the eastern islands, Nusa Tenggara Timur, Flores is a beautiful, mountainous island stretching 360 km from east to west. It is part of a volcanic belt that stretches from Sumatra through Java and Bali to the Banda sea.The first contact for the Florenese with the outside world was recorded in the 12thcentury by Chinese sandal wood traders. In the 16th century Portuguese traders and missionaries named the place ‘the cape of flowers' for its exquisite underwater world of coral fish and other marine life.

Crystal clear waters, white and pink sandy beaches, jungle and mountains combined with a colorful parallel underwater world makes this a truly remarkable place.
