The reef just in front of the bungalows is definitely superb and very alive, suitable for any level of snorkelers and free divers. Turtles, rays and trevallies are seen on a daily basis, mantas and dolphins are also very often seen, while whales and dugongs make their appearance sometimes.
Discover Scuba Dives
For those who never tried diving but are not sure to commit in a course, we offer the opportunity to make a shallow water discover dive, very safe, entering the water from the beach just in front of our bungalows.
We have a fully equipped 5 stars Padi Dive Center. We offer daily 2/3 tanks dives in the Komodo National park as well as in our house reef. We also offer Padi Dive Courses. Our reef is really suitable for courses, from Open Water to Dive Master.
Kanawa has just established the first SSI Free Diving school in the area. 2 or 3 days courses are available from beginners to more advanced. Anyone can learn a safe and fun way to explore the underwater life.
We definitely recommend a walk around the island. Kanawa Beach Bungalow is the only establishment, no fisherman village or any other human installation is on the island. The walk takes around 1 hour. The two secluded beaches on the north and on the east side of Kanawa are easier to be reached at low tide.
A must do. Recommended at sun set or sun rise when the sun is not so hot. Suitable for everyone, better with a pair of shoes but also makeable with flip flops. The full track takes usually 15 minutes starting from the back of vegetable garden. The first part is the steepest one. The view of the National Park from the top is breath taking and definitely worth the effort. We highly recommend it.
On request we can organize bon fires on the beach at any time. During high season we organize dancing nights with music and local music concerts.
Our staff loves to play at sun set, challenging our guests in matches of mixed countries teams.
