Labuan Bajo, the once remote fishing town situated West of Flores, is rapidly becoming a popular tourist destination in Indonesia. Being gateway to the breath-taking Komodo National Park – home to some of the most awe-inspiring islands we have ever seen – it is easy to understand why. From captivating landscapes to astonishing views,(like Amelia Sea View!) and pink beaches to dazzling blue sea, this area can be described as nothing short of paradise.
Encompassed by extraordinary islands and world class diving, it is no wonder that most visitors spend their days’ island hopping. However if you do find yourself with some spare time, you should definitely look to check out Love Hill.
Love Hill is situated around 6km out of town and is made up of rolling chocolate hills overlooking the surrounding bays of Labuan Bajo.
Offering breath-taking views of tropical rainforests, rugged landscapes & dazzling waters, it is no surprise that Love Hill is a hotspot for photographers.
The panoramic views from the hilltops, make Love Hill a popular spot for sunset. As the sun sets, the hills reflect golden in the light, and if you’re lucky, an epic light show in the sky will follow. Just magical…

From Labuan Bajo town it is possible to take either a car or motorbike taxi. Otherwise, if you don’t mind walking, it is around a 2 hour round trip. But be careful if coming back after sunlight as there is no lighting along the road.
