Take the morning flight from Denpasar, Bali to Maumere, it takes only 90 minutes or so and costs IDR 550,000-650,000 (40-60 USD) depending on the season. Once you're out of the airport at Maumere ignore the dozens of taxi drivers shouting out prices and take a prepaid taxi to Coconut Garden Beach Resort which is about a half an hour's drive. It will cost IDR 100,000 (7 USD). Spend the day relaxing in paradise and watch a magical sunset on the beach. I spent a total of IDR 1,104,000 (80 USD) for my stay here in a sea bungalow, meals, kayak and SUP board rentals included.
