Kanawa is a small island that is part of the Komodo National Park and is located north of the park. It is possible to sleep on the island in one of the resorts there on the southern part of the island while the north is completely untouched. The island offers beautiful blue sea views and an amazing white beach you will be able to spot from a long distance.
If you would like to stay on the island you have to take in mind some things. Firstly, there are no five star resorts and secondly this island is very remote. Service might not be what you are used to and the facilities of the resorts might be lacking. Also take into account the island is so small there is no ATM and bad cellphone connection – it is perfect for those looking to reconnect with nature without today’s modern conveniences to distract them. Nevertheless the island offers one of the best snorkeling places of the world. You will be able to see sharks, sea-turtles, sea snakes or amazing sea stars. You can get your diving or snorkeling equipment from the dive shop located on the island.
