Komodo Island

Komodo National Park encompasses 603 km sq of land and 1.214 km sq of marine waters. It contains three large islands (Komodo, Rinca and Padar) and many smaller islands. Established as a National Park in 1980, Komodo has been declared a Man and Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site in 1986.

KOMODO ISLAND ( Picture )
One of the world’s great wildlife regions, this small archipelago of 280 km sq is located between Sumbawa and Flores is home to the Komodo dragon, the sole survivor of carnivorous dinosaurs that thrived in tropical Asia 130 million years ago. Today isolated by the strong, unpredictable currents in the straits that separate them, these dry and barren island draw thousands of travelers from all over the world to view the lizards in their natural habitat. Komodo, as well as the neighboring islands of Padar, Rinca, Motong, and two small areas on Flores south of Labuhanbajo, were made a national park in 1980.

The sea surrounding the islands offers crystal clear water to swim or snorkel, vistas of sea life and white sandy beach. The only human population on the island is at the fishing village called Komodo who supplement their income breeding goats which are used to feed the lizard.
