FAQ'S TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
The absolute highlights are Komodo National Park (komodo dragons, diving and scenery), Kelimutu National Park and traditional villages.
The main attraction of Flores is its pureness. No traffic, endless beauty, nice people. Flores has an unique culture, traditional villages, volcanos to climb and beaches which leave the ones on
Bali far behind.

Wae Rebo and Bena are absolutely the most touristy villages, especially in the months May to September. In Bena the situation is not that bad. A good alternative for Wae Rebo is Belaraghi which is between Bajawa and Aimere or Tololela. Bena village is on the UNESCO waitinglist and therefore the most visited traditional village in het Bajawa area. There are still relatively undiscovered gems and the traditional villages are still worthwhile.
Here below a small list of villages worthwhile to visit

Well, yes and no. There are no surfing places in the meaning of exploited like on Bali, Sumba, Sumbawa or Rote. But there are some stretches on the south coast of Flores near Pruda and south from Hewa (both in the east) where are waves high enough. And maybe some more spots which are not discovered yet.
