A protected island paradise exclusive to the luxury Amanwana hotel and a handful of small fishing villages, Moyo is a national marine and nature reserve amidst the turquoise waters of the Flores Sea.
Reached by a 1.5-hour flight from Bali by private plane and located just north of Sumbawa island, this is a haven for nature lovers and those looking for privileged, idyllic seclusion.
Land and water-based excursions here get you to see the variety of bird and animal life including deer to wild boar, macaque monkeys, sea eagles and osprey. Exploring the island’s interior on foot will take you to hidden waterfalls and pools. Dive or snorkel the rich water of the Flores to spot its vibrant marine life, such as manta rays, whale sharks and turtles.
When to go
Between May and October to avoid the rainy season.
What to do
- Snorkelling & scuba diving
- Fly from Bali in Amanwana’s private sea plane; the flight takes guests over the coral fringed Gilli Islands and soars past the summit of Lombok’s Mount Rinjani.
