Ende harbour and market

An interesting wander

More on Ende
The small Ende harbour isn’t exactly a tourist attraction, but it’s interesting to wander out onto the pier and ask the boats where they’re heading.
Travelfish says:

Makassar, Bali and Maluku -- the answers are as exotic as Flores itself. You’ll see mid-sized container ships idling in the harbour as well as the occasional ferry and passenger ship. Kids play in the clear waters, and it’s a great place to watch one of Ende’s typically overwrought and gorgeous sunsets.

You’ll find the harbour on Ende’s west coast -- walk to the beach, head south and just keep going.

Located to the west of the harbour and running alongside the ocean, this market is an especially vibrant place to visit in the early morning, as locals hawk their wares of cassava, ikat cloths, red hot chilli peppers, fresh coffee and much more.

It’s an interesting place to take photographs and chat with the ever-talkative Flores locals -- you are guaranteed to encounter fruits and vegetables you’ve never seen before. Come before 08:00 for the most interesting experience.

Unmissable is the fish market, where local fishermen and hawkers trade in epic and delicious looking slabs of tuna, swordfish and more -- from tiny silver pomfrets to eels and squid.
