Between Sumbawa and Flores lie the special islands of Komodo. Specifically they are the island of Komodo itself, Padar, Rinca and a series of smaller islands. The archipelago is best known for the beautiful Komodo National Park, where you can admire the gigantic Komodo dragon and an unparalleled natural environment. For me, it is an essential stop if it is your first trip to Indonesia and you are considering making a route. In this post I tell you how to visit the Komodo National Park.
Komodo National Park, Indonesia
Komodo National Park is included in one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a protected biosphere.
The most notable animal is the Komodo Dragon, they are large animals and are not harmless, so do not trust them, do not approach them and do not feed them.
Although it is not the only animal that abounds in the Park. There are deer, squirrels, turtles... as well as a wide variety of marine fauna; huge rays, dolphins, sea turtles, fish of all colors...
You can walk through the park and enjoy a natural environment like no other. Here you will also find the famous pink beach of Komodo. (Although it is not the only pink beach in the world, nor in Indonesia) in contrast to the pink of the sand, with the water and the green mountains makes this place a very special place.
How to get to Komodo National Park
To book you must access here and choose the date and time of departure. You will go in a speedboat and you will leave from the island of Flores, in the port of the town of Labuan Bajo. The tour is about 10 hours approx where you will visit the different islands, you will go to the pink beach and stop to snorkel in a good area. Includes food and transportation by speedboat. The cost is about 100 euros and here you have to add the entrance to the Komodo park, approximately 40 dollars.
The landscapes of Komodo Island are incredible. Among the fauna of the island you will not only find the famous Komodo, but thousands of birds, deer, monkeys and above all a marine fauna with a great variety of animals and colored corals.
