Introducing Maumere

Blessed with a long, languid coastline backed by layered hills, Maumere, is one of the main gateways to Flores, and remains well connected with Bali and Timor, so you’ll probably wind up here for a night. Yet despite recent, mostly effective, efforts to pave the crumbling streets and control its once overwhelming litter problem, this is not exactly a charming urban destination. Thankfully, you don’t have to stay in the city. Snag one of the sweet beach bungalows on the coast.
