Komodo Island may just be one of Indonesia’s 17,508, but its iconic beauty and wildlife makes it a standout and worthy enough to travel to. Located in the East Nusa Tenggara province, it is named after the largest lizard on earth, the Komodo dragon, which calls it home, along with other wildlife species.
Komodo Island is also famous for its beauty underneath the crystal blue waters. It has a diverse marine life, showcased in world-class diving sites. When you visit Komodo Island, do not miss Rangko Cave, Padar Island, Komodo National Park, Pink Beach, and Kelor Island. Part of the island’s allure is its super friendly locals made up of Bugis and Sulawesi mixed with former convicts exiled to the island. That’s why a visit to Komodo village should also be part of everyone’s itinerary.
The easiest route to Komodo Island from anywhere in Indonesia is via the Komodo Airport, located near Labuan Bajo town. If you are coming from an international city like Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hongkong, Manila, and Taipei, fly to Soekarno–Hatta International Airport in Jakarta or I Gusti Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali before flying to Komodo Airport.
