Seraya Island : Lonely Island, Beachfront Bungalows & Nice Snorkeling

Come to Seraya Island and spend some wonderful days in an unspoiled, tranquil environment away from Kuta’s hassle and bustle and enjoy the beauty of white sandy beaches, blue waters, and exotic coral life.

Seraya Island (official name: Seraya Kecil) is about 1,3 km long and up to 200 m wide and is situated about 10 km north of Labuan Bajo at the western end of the island of FLORES, Indonesia.

When an area’s primary inhabitant is the world’s largest monitor lizard that is touted as the dinosaur’s last descendent, you know that this must be a very unique destination indeed. Rugged and remote, to say the least, with untouched natural beauty that belies its picture postcard image. For intrepid adventure travelers who are game for a true Robinson Crusoe-like experience, this setting can be enjoyed even further with a stay in traditional thatch-roof huts that sit on the beachfront.

Welcome to your own paradise isle: Seraya Island, just off of the famed Komodo Island, east of Bali, Indonesia. A true escape from the ordinary!

Activities
Enjoy activities like swimming, snorkeling, fishing (we provide the equipment) and canoeing around the island or rent our motorized boat and be your own captain to discover the uninhabited surrounding islands. (You will be given a crash course on how to operate the boat. It is easy).
To see the famous Komodo dragon is a must. We organize boat trips to Rinca or Komodo. There are dragons on both islands.
