Labuan Bajo is a launching point to many sailing itineraries, visiting the giant dragons on Komodo Island and Rinca Island within Komodo National Park, or exploring the huge Flores island’s interior. In recent years, Labuan Bajo has gradually turned into a busy spot that offers a wide range of tourist facilities and the gorgeous harbor town, orbited by stunning islands and blessed with idyllic views towards unsurpassed tropical sunsets.
If you have an extra day to spend at Labuan Bajo, make sure to explore a few exciting sights just an hour drive inland. First, visit Rangko Cave (Goa Rangko) that features a secret swimming hole filled with crystal clear water. Then you can explore two incredible waterfalls, Cunca Wulang (30m) and Cunca Rami (70m), nested in the middle of the jungle. Hiking, kayaking, swimming, cliff jumping, you can actively spend the whole day here. Make sure to be back at Labuan Bajo by its hard-to-beat colorful sunset. Enjoy a perfect panoramic view and the many coastal islets with their strips of white-sand beaches. The look on wooden cottages with thatched roofs camouflaged by shrubberies and towering trees up in the sloping township, overlooking an idyllic harbor, make an evening an unforgettable experience. Labuan Bajo can be an ideal getaway on its own. There are regular daily flights from Jakarta or Bali to Labuan Bajo.
