WELCOME TO FLORES
WELCOME TO OUR PARADISE!
FLORES is an island in the tropics south of the equator, belonging to the lesser Sunda Islands (Nusa Tenggara Timur) of Indonesia. The original name of Flores is Tandjoeng Bunga, Malay for flowercape. When the Portuguese came to the island they renamed it into Cabo de Flores and the Dutch shortened it into Flores which means flowers.
FLORES is mostly green, partly dry, mountainous and heavenly beautiful. Flores has everything when dreaming of a tropical island.
FLORES has some gorgeous touristic attractions like the prehistorically komodo dragons, the “Spielberg like” Kelimutu lakes, majestic volcanos like Inerie and Ebulobo and traditions we have almost forgotten in this hasty world. And much more.
Come and see the empty beaches, enjoy wonderful diving, adventurous trekkings, deserted islands, pristine forests, all colour lakes, hidden waterfalls, impressive ceremonies, traditional villages, awesome music, interesting ikat (woven cloth) and the welcoming people of Flores. Superb is the only word which fits them all.
You will be surprised by this warm and cool island.
This growing website is made with love and passion.
Colours are well chosen: green (forest & ricefields), blue (sea and rivers) and brown (mountains & traditional houses), the colours of Flores.
