Kelor Island

Kelor Island is located not far from Menjerite and offers a beautiful underwater view through translucent water. Before your snorkeling session, take a moment to hike to the top of the steep hill where a stunning view awaits. If you feel lazy after the hike, just relax and sit on the white sand beach while enjoying a fresh young coconut.


Pink Beach

Comprising billions of tiny glistening specks of red and white coral, Pink Beach is one of the most romantic spots on earth. Perfect for an unforgettable marriage proposal, family photo shoot, 5-star picnic, or relaxing snorkel in calm, aquamarine waters; Pink Beach is a must-stop on your AYANA Lako di'a itinerary. 


Bat Island

Explore the secrets and panoramic views of Bat Island.

Gili Lawa Trek

East Nusa Tenggara has even more to offer with a combination of land and water activities that will keep you busy all day long. At Gili Lawa, you can have it all. Hike the hill to the top and enjoy cotton candy shades of sunset or the golden hour of sunrise. Gili Lawa also has a colorful underwater life for you. A snorkeling session before your sunset hike, or after your sunrise hike, is a must.

Wainilu

While most dive sites are accessible from the middle of the ocean, divers can start their journey to Wainilu right in front of the beach. Don't come to a fast conclusion when all you see is a sandy slope without corals, because if you keep going, you will find another interesting diving experience that Komodo Island has to offer. At Wainilu, you will discover the best muck dive of Komodo, surrounded by frog fish, pipe fish and many more.


Mesa Village

Flores Island does not only have natural beauty, but it is also rich with arts and culture. Visit one of the local villages on your sailing trip, such as Mesa Village, a fishing village on a small island where Bajau people - or “sea gypsy" as they often called - have lived for generations. Explore the village and see the colorful houses from marigold yellow to muted blues and greens. Don’t get surprised by the villagers’ warm welcome.


Manta Alley

If you have visited Manta Point and want more time to swim with Komodo's graceful manta rays, Manta Alley is another diving spot for you to enjoy the moment with these gently ocean ambassadors. 


Nusa Kode Dragon

Pull up to Kanawa's shores to see baby reef sharks, graceful lionfish, and smooth cowrie shells tattooed with tribal markings. A long rustic wooden pier serves as the perfect home base for snorkeling adventures along Kanawa's famous coral shelf.


Crystal Rock

Located between Gili Lawa Laut and Castle Rock, Crystal Rock has quite a strong current similarly to Castle Rock. Here, you can see brighter colors of fish and several series of walls covered with soft corals and large fans.


Shot Gun

If you are looking for more challenges in your diving lifestyle, Shotgun is the place. This site is known for having a very beautiful yellow-colored coral garden and numerous marine creatures, such as stingrays, white tip sharks, giant trevally, and reef octopus. Aside from its beautiful view, the site has the power and speed of the water to give you an exhilarating ride.


Castle Rock

Castle Rock creates unforgettable memories for people who dive here, making it a must-do over and over again. Although the current at Castle Rock can be very strong, the visibility is excellent.
