We visited late in the afternoon at the end of a long day out on the boat, which possibly accounted for the amount of trash on the beach. There was some good snorkelling off the beach, including huge starfish which could be seen from the pier and an enclosure of baby turtles. We were charged 50,000rp to dock the boat, and to sit on a deck chair was 100,000rp.

The jetty is treacherous but once you are past the disembarkation, the snorkeling in 50 cm of water is marvelous. The coral is damaged, but there is abundant sea life- angel fish, star fish available for the novice.

We visited Kanawa Island as the last stop on our 1 night 2 days cruise with Ficko Komodo.com cruises who I would recommend.It is a picturesque Island but we didnt explore too much.The snorkelling was good with hundreds of funky star fish in knee deep water and lots of fish.The accomodation looks basic but the idea of a relaxing couple of days there looked tempting.They have a restaurant with food and beer but expect to pay higher prices to the mainland due to its remoteness.Its not far from Labuan Bajo and were were told that you could organise your trip to and from Labuan and a night with breakfast for a nominal amount.Worth a look to chill out away from the hussle and bussle of Labuan
