Dragon Land Komodo National Park comprises three main islands – Komodo, Rinca, and Padar, as well as a number of smaller islands. There are endless white and pink sand beaches with clear, emerald green water ideal for snorkeling or diving at some of the world’s most exciting dive sites. The park’s undulating hills and geographical formations have a unique signature, reminding one at once that this area is different from the rest of the archipelago.Komodo National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, covering just 1,733 km2 (669 mi2), quite small in comparison to other national parks in Indonesia. To compare, Raja Ampat is about 40,000 km2(15,444 mi2). Komodo’s west coast is the least visited, and the southern portion of the park is also often deserted. The busiest area of the park is in the northeast, due to its concentration of the most famous dive sites and proximity to Labuan Bajo harbor.The islands, positioned between the flow of sea currents, attract manta rays, whales, dolphins, dugongs and sea turtles as well as over 1,000 species of tropical fish. Komodo’s abundant marine wildlife and currents set the stage for some of the most exciting drift dives in the world.Komodo’s landscape is defined by dramatic cliffs rising sharply from the azure sea. The rock formations make it clear that tectonic plates have made radical shifts in the past. Below the surface, rich marine biodiversity awaits, home to over 250 species of coral.
