Once a small fishing village, Labuan Bajo in Flores, Indonesia, is now an epicenter of tourism and the launching point for trips to Komodo Island and Rinca Island, home of the famous Komodo dragons.
The capital of the district of Manggarai Barat, Labuan Bajo is located at the westernmost tip of Indonesia's Flores Island. In recent years, it has flourished from the influx of divers looking to explore the pristine marine environments of the surrounding islands, as well as eager tourists wanting to catch a glimpse of the majestic Komodo dragon. Equally magnificent is the panoramic view of the harbor during sunset, accentuated by the surrounding landscape of hills and mountains. When you're not off on an adventure at the Komodo National Park, don't miss the chance to truly relax on one of the gorgeous white sand beaches decorating the coastal islets of Labuan Bajo.
