Indonesia // Flores //


Situated on a narrow peninsula with flat-topped Gunung Meja and the active volcano Gunung Ipi at its sea end, the port of Ende is the largest town on Flores and provides access to Kelimutu and Moni, though there is little in town to attract tourists other than banks and ferries to other destinations. Black-sand beaches stretch down both east and west coasts: the Bajawa road runs right along the seafront, so just catch a bemo out to Ndao bus terminal and the beach begins right there. The area around Ende is known for its ikat weaving. Ngella is a weaving village about 30km east from Wolowana bus terminal in Ende, near the coast.
