Flores, meaning ‘flower’ in Portuguese, lies in the Nusa Tenggara island group, between the Komodo and Rinca islands. Portuguese traders and missionaries colonised the island in the 16th century which explains the predominance of Roman Catholicism.
The island’s topography of volcanic mountains surrounded by terraced rice paddies along with unspoilt beaches overlooking the deep turquoise sea makes it an ideal secluded getaway. The port town of Labuanbajo is the main tourist centre and the transit hub to reach Komodo National Park and nearby offshore diving sites.
