Sitting just 50 kilometers east of Komodo, most travelers know Flores as a pitstop on the way to see the Komodo dragons. But with its many natural wonders and a rising dining and hotel scene, Flores is worth a trip on its own.
Day or overnight trips are available for travelers who want to hop between islands. Made in Italy is a floating restaurant that conducts boat tours around Flores.
