Kanawa Island is only a fortnight kilometers in the growing fishermen’s town of Labuan Bajo on Flores, is surrounded by a bed of coral reefs teeming with colorful fish all around. Its turquoise water is extraordinarily calm and clear. Snorkeling and swimming are most activities of the popular family here. Dive down the sea from the jetty, and meet shoals of fish that cloud the stilts. Hours would pass silently as you’re busy with any of those beach actions. The island of Kanawa has just two blooming hills, with a fantastic panorama of the hilltop. Covering only 32 hectares less than 80-acre property, the island is a hideout in the concealed, yet so near the nascent port of Labuan Bajo.
This might be the only resort class service that fits the spending budget of backpackers. The Rp 250, 000 per night bungalows on Kanawa might just become an ideal base for you to start exploring the whole, or part of the Komodo National Park. There isn’t anything you may do on the island, except everything that the water and the property of the national park around it need to offer. The observation of the Komodo dragon, the water buffalos of Rinca, the female and male palm trees, the savanna of Monkey Mountain at Rinca, along with picturesque landscape of the national park is equally astonishing.
Furthermore, diving and snorkeling in the crystal clear waters are only a short walk away whenever you remain on Kanawa instead of Labuan Bajo. Amongst lean beach vegetation that grows between rocky mountain and turquoise water, the eco-friendly property is a beautiful ambush. People don’t want to leave too soon. It is a haven. There are also diving enthusiasts who like to share their latest participation with the mantas, the wobbegongs, the whale sharks, or the pigmy seahorse found in the diving spots around the staircase. The music usually turns out to become lively throughout the evening following a time lapsing moment passing the unworldly episode of a golden sunset.
