Located 5 kilometres from the famous Pantai Naga, Pantai Koka is one of Flores’ beautiful hidden beaches perfect for recreation and relaxation.
Pantai Koka is smaller compared to the famous beaches all over the Indonesian archipelago, but it has a unique feature that makes curious travelers traverse the challenging road to it — divided into two by a promontory, the water on the left is protected and calm, while the water on the right makes big waves perfect for surfing. The sights in Pantai Koka is nothing short of panoramic — deep blue waters, a stretch of fine, white sand, plus verdant green hills make great vacation photos. The best thing about this beach is you can enjoy it without having to worry about large crowds — the place is off the beaten road, and is a perfect destination if you want to escape the crowd of famous tourist spots.
Pantai Koka is located at East Nusa Tenggara.
