Tiwu is the Lionese word for ‘lake’. Tiwu Bowu Lake is one of the rare sites where you can enjoy a peaceful day canoeing on the relaxing, luminous water while indulging your senses in the beautiful scenery of traditional ‘keramba’ farming, an interesting net system of fish farming.
The forest around the lake is a great place to explore and observe birds in beautiful natural surroundings. If you bring your binoculars, you may even get to see some of the rare endemic species. Located close to Flores’ north coast, Tiwu Bowu also offers equally charming views of rice paddy fields and a contrasting charcoal-colored seashore.
