Top 15 Photos from our Kencana Adventure Tour

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our Disclosure Policy here

One thing we learned during our time spent in Eastern Indonesia is that it is extremely photogenic. Around every turn, you will find another excuse to lift the camera to your eye and I certainly didn’t hesitate during our time spent here. The only regret we have is that we didn’t spend more time in this area.

Our Kencana Adventure cruise started in the picturesque Flores and moved westward to Komodo Island, Rinca Island, Gili Laba, Satonda, Gili Moyo, ending in Lombok. We saw some pretty remote places that made our eyes pop. I

‘ve culled out my 15 favorite photos from our trip through these islands, but know that the shutter button was pushed 100 times over this.

This trip was the first time we have seen spectacular sunsets since we left home. Yes, they beat all the sunsets in New Zealand and Australia, so excuse the fact that I included so many.

I am hoping that you will find them just as spectacular as we did while you enjoy this tour through this beautiful part of the World.

    • Thank you! Those are two of my favorites too! So hard to pick when there are so many good ones form such a beautiful country.

  1. Recently I’ve seen a couple of posts on Indonesia and I’ve loved everything I’ve seen so far, and these pictures just go to make my desire to go grow even more. Such a shame that we didn’t make it there when we were in Asia in ’12/13.

    • Hi Dale,

      Yes, Indonesia is an AMAZING country! There is so much more to it than Bali. We can’t wait for a return visit. We plan to visit Sulawesi and Papua on our next visit and hopefully get some diving done near Flores. Simply a beautiful place in this World. 🙂

  2. Gorgeous! Just absolutely gorgeous – so much so I can’t even pick a favourite! I love the underwater photo of the Red Beach and the beautiful colours of Gili Laba – just breathtaking pictures 🙂

    • Hi Shikha! Thank you for the compliments! I had such a hard time choosing just the few I put up on the post. I have so many stunning photos. Indonesia is photogenic and so, so beautiful.
