If your dream holiday involves being washed up on a white beach with little else other than a thatched shelter, this is the destination for you. From Lubuan Bajo, a daily island shuttle will transport you to this tropical isle. On the beach are 10 bunk-style huts – at ground level are day beds, up the ladder is a mattress protected by a mosquito net.
While the sun’s out, spend your time snorkelling, canoeing or hanging out at the beach club where there’s table tennis, a selection of board games and a communal atmosphere. Some folks come over just for the day, but when they head off in the afternoon you’ll be left to enjoy the solitude and sunset. If you dream of leaving the world behind and sleeping to the sound of lapping waves, get to Le Pirate Island now!
From US$120 a night, including transfers and meals.
