Labuanbajo

The port town of Labuanbajo is experiencing a boom in tourism, serving as the gateway to Flores and the main departure point for trips to Komodo National Park, but it nevertheless retains a laidback village feel. You can stay in town or at one of the nearby island hotels – a pleasant option, as most of these places offer a quiet getaway with unspoilt beaches and decent snorkelling, although they tend to be pricey. You can also easily organize dive trips from one of the many dive shops in town.
