Kanawa island is about an hour’s boat ride from Labuanbajo and is home to…nothing. Well, nothing but 14 bungalows, a few staff, 3 cats, beautiful beaches, pristine coral and crystal clear water. In short, paradise. The island is tiny. If there wasn’t a small mountain in the middle of it, you could walk round the entire place in probably less than an hour. The side where the bungalows are located is ringed by a thin, but fantastic white sand beach and just a few metres off the shore is some really amazing coral and fish life.
