 Komodo Islands

Komodo Island Beaches

Of the 17,508 islands that make up the country of Indonesia, three of them are home for the endangered Komodo Dragons (giant monitor lizards) and are surrounded by  an extremely rich marine environment, not to mention stellar dive & snorkel sites recognized as some of the best in the world. For centuries, a local tradition required feeding the dragons by leaving deer parts behind after a hunt or by sacrificing goats. In the past, the practice maintained a friendly relationship with the animals, which can live for more than 50 years and recognize individual humans. Ancient taboos strictly forbid harming the komodos, a key reason they survived here while becoming extinct everywhere else in the world. 


Bali → Labuan Bajo: What started as a small fishing village has become the gateway to the Komodo Islands and an epicenter for travelers to kick off their search for Komodo Dragons!

Labuan Bajo Sunset– Relax, swim, & enjoy the beach at Labuan Bajo: Upon arrival at the LBJ airport, we’ll transfer to the hotel and have the afternoon and evening to explore the small town, relax on the beach, lounge by the pool, and grab a bite to eat before the dragon photography hunt begins in the morning. 

Sail to the Islands of Dragons: Hop on a boat for our journey to the Komodo Islands.

– Explore Rinca Island: A ranger guided trek in search of the Komodo Dragon as well as buffalo, wild boar, monkeys and wild horses. Pass by dragon nests and watering holes for the best chance at sightings with breathtaking views for photography along the way.

– Snorkeling and relaxing on the beach: After our first expedition on Rinca we’ll stop at a nearby island to relax on a sandy white beach and swim or snorkel in the bay.

bats sunset– Kolong Island, Land of Flying Foxes: In the afternoon we’ll head to an island famous for it’s massive colony of flying foxes, which are really giant bats (“Kalong” means “fruit bat”). These magnificent creatures leave the colony at dusk in the thousands and put on a magnificent show (awesome pictures!)

– Komodo Island: Our last opportunity to admire and photograph these rare beasts; another guided trek will take us through savannah and waterholes where deer and wild boars come to drink (and Komodo Dragons often lie and wait…). Short hikes up a few hills afford more panoramic views across the islands, bays, and beaches for great photos. 

– Photograph, swim, & snorkel at Pink Beach: We’ll wrap up the sailing adventure with aPink Beach Toursstop at the nearby Pantai Merah, or Pink Beach as it is rightfully named, to photograph this unique and gorgeous coastal landscape. This peculiar beach gets its color from red coral fragments eroded by the tides and is 1 of only 7 pink beaches in the world! The beach and its cove is not only a blast to photograph, but one of the best snorkel spots in the whole area.

– Back to LBJ: We sail back from Pink Beach to Labuan Bajo for our final night. It would not be complete without a farewell dinner celebration to reminisce about our epic journey through the land of dragons, flying foxes, and pink beaches!
