With its abundance of lush green forests, it’s not hard to work out how this island got its name. Add this to its white sand beaches, temperate bays ideal for snorkelling and diving, a skyline rimmed by volcanoes and countryside dotted with multi-hued lakes, and it’s easy to see why Flores has a reputation as a tropical paradise. Quieter and more remote than many of its counterparts, the island is still something of a hidden gem, although it is increasingly regarded as the country’s ‘next big thing’. A visit here wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Komodo National Park, where you have the opportunity to get up close and personal with magnificent, if somewhat intimidating, Komodo ‘dragons’.
