Encounter the wild landscapes and endemic wildlife of the UNESCO-listed Komodo Islands on this 3-day extension trip from Bali. Come face-to-face with Komodo dragons and photograph the surreal beauty of Pink Beach and Rinca Island before venturing below the water’s surface to experience the archipelago’s breathtaking marine life.
Fly from the “Island of the Gods” to Labuan Bajo, a colourful harbour town on the western tip of Flores. Your local guide will whisk you to Batu Cermin where you’ll have time to explore the local markets and pick up locally crafted souvenirs before an afternoon of leisure at the Puri Sari Beach Hotel.
Venomous Dragons and Pink Coral
Get a good night’s sleep ready for a big day of adventure exploring the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Komodo Islands National Park. Cruise through the azure waters of the Savu Sea towards the main island of Komodo where a local ranger will guide you on a one-hour walk in search of the prehistoric looking Komodo dragon. Caution competes with emotional excitement at the same time ,recognising these monitor lizards have articulated jaws that hide razor sharp teeth and venom glands.
Continue on to beautiful Pink Beach, a pink ark so named after the tiny fragments of red coral that colour its shores. Feast on a delicious lunch before diving into the crystal clear waters to discover the magnificent marine life and underwater landscapes for which the Komodo Islands are famed. Be mesmerised by neon flashed of coral colours, and fish – both the star and tropical variety.
Island Life Diversity
Continue cruising towards Rinca Island for another short trek through its hilly savannah to see more Komodo dragons in their natural habitat. In addition to these immense lizards, the island is home to buffalo, crab-eating macaques and a diversity of birdlife.
