Beachside cafes

Ende doesn't have anything you're likely to confuse with a bar, but this small strip of open-air cafes near the soccer field and port is a great place to catch the sunset and sip cold drinks.

There are also simple fried snacks and bakso, Indonesia's riff on Southeast Asia's favourite rice noodle soup. A particular favourite with young Ende locals, the soundtrack here is American country and rock music -- Rhett Akins was big on the night we visited. Kids play pickup games of volleyball on the black-sand beach, and you can watch fishing boats return from a day out as you relax.

How to get here? Head to the soccer field down Jalan Sudirman, then make a right on Jalan Panterae. Look for the big park sign and the commotion. Only active during the evenings and around sundown, especially on the weekends.
