Pink sunset in Labuan Bajo from the hotel

Labuan Bajo is a fishing town located at the western end of Flores in the Nusa Tenggara region of east Indonesia.


Once a small fishing village, Labuan Bajo (also spelled Labuhanbajo and Labuanbajo) in Flores is now a busy bustling center of tourism. It is the launching point for trips to Komodo Island and Rinca Island, home to the famous komodo dragons. Nearby Kanawa and Seraya Islands are a great opportunity to do some diving and snorkeling and every evening at Kalong Island thousands of flying fox bats put on an amazing display.

Within a few hours of Labuan Bajo can be found several waterfalls, trekking and many diverse beaches.


The town is quite small and can easily be traversed on foot (in 10–15 minutes) []
