A forgotten Eden

From the colourful reefs of Tatawa Island to the enchanting hues of Komodo’s Pink Beach, this is a region of pristine natural beauty. Isolated coves, countless bays and tropical islets compete for attention with white sand beaches, mangroves, lagoons and remarkable limestone formations, not to mention the wildlife.

Rinca Island and the reefs of Sabayor

Home to astonishing wildlife, Rinca Island also offers exciting trekking routes with spectacular views. Back onboard Amandira, charter a course for Sabayor where multi-hued reefs are visited by white tip reef sharks, huge Napolean wrasse, turtles, manta rays and schools of tropical fish.

Unparalleled scuba diving and snorkelling

Dive in the reefs surrounding Satonda Island and kayak under the bat-filled trees fringing a volcanic lake. Wake up to the reefs of Batu Monchu Bay, frequented by manta rays and dolphins. Experience the magnificent underwater sea mounds of Crystal and Castle Rocks at Gili Lawa Laut and snorkel with manta rays at Makassar.
