The Secret Island Of Pangabatang

If you’re in Flores and dreaming of exploring quiet, deserted and exotic islands that are way o the tourists’ radar, then you must visit Pangabatang Island. Easily accessible from Maumere, the capital city of Sikka, you can embark from Laurens Say Port for an easy one-hour boat journey to your very own “private island”. Surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters, Pangabatang Island is usually the destination of choice for those who crave a getaway from crowds and noise. It is a great option if you’re looking for an easy day-trip with a loved one or a trusted friend. To get to the island, you’ll need to rent a boat which would cost you about Rp 300,000 or more – the boat will drop you o and wait for you till you choose to return. While you’re there, you could just relax and forget about the hustle and bustle of modern life – swim, snorkel, suntan, nap and take a walk on the pristine beach. *Photo courtesy of Donny Leonardi
