After almost a month in Indonesia, I realized that I hadn't been to a single beach there. If you've followed my journey for a while, you probably know that this is highly unusual for me, that's why I decided to spend my last three days in Bali looking for the perfect beach.
Like most visitors, I came to Labuan Bajo from Bali to dive in the close-by Komodo National park and to look at Komodo dragons.
Labuan Bajo is famous as a starting point to go on a dragon tour to Komodo island or Rinca, but there are many other places to explore from there. I had already booked a week in a dive resort right at the border of the National Park, but had a couple of days to spare in Labuan Bajo. So I went on to explore Flores island, as usual mostly to see everything you can see from a boat.
You can't come to the Komodo National Park without seeing the dragons.
These giants are said to be found on five islands, while the local dive guides only told be about Komodo and Rinca, where you can officially visit them with a ranger (I was very happy not having the information, that they are also just chilling on Flores and thought they only lived in the National Parks. I never heard of anybody just meeting them on the other inhabited islands, though).
One of the reasons I started this blog was my stay at “le pirate” in Nusa Ceningan, a little resort and beach club on one of the small islands around Bali.
By now you guys probably know that I'm not a fan of posh beach clubs and would rather go for a free night of bonfires and drinks on the beach most days.
