This attractive strip of black sand and electric blue water, located east of Ende on the road out to Wolotopo, would attract pricy condominiums almost anywhere else in the world.
Here, it's the sole domain of crabs and the occasional group of local teens -- but only in the afternoons. A known local swimming spot, you can take shelter from the sun in a sandy cliffside area that boasts a large tree and some small tide pools. A great place to bring a snack and book, and vegetate.
Pack out your trash and pick up any other rubbish items you see -- at least if you value your karma. Swimming near Flores can be a rough and current-heavy business, so be careful and don't swim alone.
