Remote beauty on Labengki Island

“Labengki Island, two hours off the shore of Kendari, Sulawesi, is a destination that very few tourists have traveled. Luckily, a group of friends and I had the opportunity to visit and it was an experience I’ll never forget. We traveled to Labengki Island with a group of conservationists who specialize in marine biology. One unique characteristic about Labengki is that it is home to some of the largest clam species in the world with a size of up to 50cm. The island is also home to a small village of fisherman and is used as a research facility.”

“Our guides brought us snorkeling in a variety of areas throughout Labengki and we found Nemo!  We also ate fresh lobster for lunch and met some really wonderful people.  Labengki is a beautiful and surreal place.”
