Warloka

Warloka, a laid-back fishing village, offers both, a light trek on its secluded shoreline as well as a taste of Florinese history with its treasures from the distant past. Its mystical, energy-filled atmosphere makes this village and its surroundings an attractive place for excursions.

An ancient former trading port, Warloka is a place where numerous historic artifacts like stone pillars, dolmens, daggers and spearheads, jewelry, and antique ceramics have been found. Some of these items are even estimated to date back to the Chinese Bronze Age, which presumably started around 2000 BC.

 

At present, more than 100 small to massive rocks and stone formations (as long as 5.7 meters), can be found at in ten different locations. It would take you around three hours to visit them all. Such an extensive archeological tour may not be to everybody’s taste; especially due to the rather poor condition of some sites because of illegal excavations. However, you should not miss Warloka’s most impressive dolmen (stone table), which is located on top of Warloka Hill. Up there, you will also be rewarded with an awesome panoramic view and magnificent sunsets.

Facilities
As there are no facilities in Warloka, you should better bring your own food and beverages.

How to get there
Warloka is located just 21km south of Labuan Bajo, reachable by boat or motorcycle. One of the most popular ways to get to Warloka is on a boat tour with Labuan Bajo as the jumping-off point. It takes about 11/2 hours to get there. Motorcycling across the mainland is fantastic with the combination of roads and scenery, but it’s only for experienced bikers, due to the tough conditions and blind bends.
