Welcome to Flores & Komodo !


The Portuguese who reached Flores island in the 15th Century gave the name Flores. 'Flores' means flowers, not by the Flowers grow on the land, but beneath the sea, coral, fishes and other marine lifes. The most beautiful coral reefs occur on the northern coast and western of the Island. Visit one of Flores’ traditional villages to gain insights on local culture and the daily lives of local residents. Friendly and welcoming villagers are eager to share their traditions and folklore with international visitors.

The most magnificent site is the Three Colored Lakes of Kelimutu volcano. Each lake is a different color: blue, green and black. Other attractions include spectacular hand-woven textiles of Maumere, Ende-Lio, Ngada, the traditional megalithic village of Bena and other traditional villages in Ngada regency (Central Flores), and "Komodo dragons". This Island is home to hundreds of different ethnic groups who speak scores of languages, and is a sort of transition point between the Malay and Papuan races.
