Komodo Island Indonesia

If you’re planning a trip to Indonesia, you should really look at putting a trip out to Komodo Island on your ‘to do’ list. It’s a part of Indonesia that feels a bit forgotten, away from the party-fueled streets of Kuta and the Komodo Island Indonesia, Komodo Island beaches, best Indonesia beaches, beach travel, best Komodo Island Hotels, best Komodo Island restaurants, best Komodo Island bars, best things to do in Komodo Island, beach travel destinations, Komodo Island snorkelingresorts dotting the coastline of Bali.  Steeped in myth and legend, as well as rugged scenery, Komodo Island is one of three main islands in Komodo National Park that is home to over 5000 of the great Komodo Dragons. It is located in the middle of the Indonesian archipelago of islands and is in between Sumbawa and the increasingly-popular Flores. In 1986 the Park was named as a World Heritage Site and a Man and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO due to its biological status.  On Komodo Island, Komodo dragons are obviously the main attraction. Usually visitors will walk around the island (always with a guide) to find the best places from which to observe and photograph the animals in their natural habitat.  Snorkeling is also one of the best here in the waters of Komodo Island. There is a little bit for everyone, here on Komodo Island Indonesia.

Weather (When to Go)

The climate on Komodo Island is tropical, and is based on an alternating wet and dry season. During the months of January, February, March, and the beginning of April, is the rainy season. The Komodo weather during these months typically see about 31 – 39 inches of rain. The rest of  the year is tropically dry and arid. The temperatures of the island during the summer months gets up to 110°F and the cooler months will dip down to about 62°F.

The overall best time to go to Komodo Island is between June and August. It is an ideal time to visit the dragons as it is mating season, temperatures are the coolest they will get all year (minimums of 22C/ 75F and maximums of 33C/ 90F and it is dry season. Visiting around this time will ensure that you also get 8-9 hours of sunshine a day and it rains on average one day per month during their time period

Getting to Komodo Island

Komodo Island is just one of the 17,508 islands that form Indonesia and is also part of the Komodo National Park. One way to get there is to fly from a major airport, like Bali, Jakarta or Denpasar, to Labuan Bajo.  The flight is very scenic so be sure to get a window seat to get a glimpse of the spectacular views.  From Labuan Bajo, you can jump on a boat and set sail for Komodo Island. The flight is very scenic so be sure to get a window seat to get a glimpse of the spectacular views!  A boat is the only way to navigate these islands unless you’re uber-rich and have access to a helicopter. Trust me, the boat ride is fantastic! It takes around 2 hours or so to get from Labuan Bajo to Komodo Island so you can do it as a day-trip, but I’d recommend you spend a few days sailing the area if you can, as there’s so much to see and do.

Travelers Tip:  Small planes are often full so it is better to book your seat in advance. Otherwise, for the more adventurous and the ones who are travelling on a tight budget, you can take the public ferry from Bali to Labuan Bajo. It will take about 3 days and the journey is an adventure in itself.

One of the best things to do on Komodo Island is to visit Komodo Island National Park. Not only is it a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but also a New 7 World Wonders of Nature too.  Komodo Island gets its name because it’s home to the super rare Komodo Dragons, and the only place where they live in nature.  On Komodo where the hiking is superb, treks range from flat 3 km strolls to steep 10 km hikes over peaks and into deep valleys. All guides speak some English and are very knowledgeable about the islands’ flora and fauna. You should be glad of the guide’s company when you spot ora(dragons can be dangerous, and have attacked and killed people).

Pink Beach, or Pantai Merah, as it is aptly named, is one of seven pink beaches on the planet, and is just one of the many amazing features of Komodo Island that make it truly a Natural Wonder of Nature. This exceptional beach gets its striking color from microscopic animals called Foraminifera, which produces a red pigment on the coral reefs. For this reason, it is called Red Beach in the local tongue. When the tiny fragments of red coral combine with the white sands, this produces the soft pink color that is visible along the shoreline. Aside from Pink Beach itself, a few small segments along Komodo’s eastern bay also have a pinkish tint.

    My best friend and colleague Gail just got back from a 2-week vacation in Bali, Indonesia and today in the office, she told us so many great things about the place. She also took a lot of photos and I thought the place is really something worth visiting. So I started looking into what Indonesia can offer to tourists. Thank goodness, your site has some great information about Komodo Island. 

    I am thinking of visiting Komodo Island in early March next year because that’s when my husband can file for office leave. But you mentioned that from January until beginning of March is the rainy season. I don’t think we will enjoy visiting these beautiful Komodo Island attractions when it’s going to be raining most of the time. In case my husband’s leave during the months of June to August next year will be approved, this will be my first time to set my foot on a “pink beach.” I wonder how pink it really is. 

    Thank you for introducing Komodo Island in Indonesia. I haven’t heard about it before because people always seemed to be talking only about Bali.

      And this is just as beautiful as Bali Alice.  The beach look pretty pink, and definitely one reason to visit 🙂  Of course the place is beautiful and has so much to offer.  I hope your husband can get the time off.  It is really much more enjoyable when it is not constantly raining.

    I am an Australian who is currently holidaying throughout SE Asia with my wife. We are in Kuala Lumpur for a while now but Komodo Island is a place that has always fascinated me. Friends of ours have recently dived the area and by all accounts, the diving is fantastic and the water clarity is superb. Do you know if there are any live aboard dive vessels which cater for this area? It may be a destination for 2019.

    Best wishes,

    Wow, I have always wanted to see the Komodo Dragons, especially when they are roaming around in the wild. This alone must make it an awesome experience to visit the Komodo Island in Indonesia.

    Another great thing about visiting this island is the best time to go between June and August, makes it a great excuse to escape the winter here in South Africa for a nice warm holiday.

    I think I would definitely choose the ferry over the plane, as that sounds both safer and more fun and you get to see more of the coast and surrounding areas this way.

    Thanks for this informative article on an island we might otherwise never have known existed.

    These Komodo Dragons that you mentioned are they any harmful to people because it is something one has to consider before coming to such a place to relax and have fun. It sure is an amazing place that I would like to visit. I have another question. When we arrive at the island is there anyway you can recommend a tour guide for us or is it possible to easily find them at the port?

      Hi Jay, and as I mentioned in the article, it is best to go to Komodo National Park with a tour guide.  Because yes,  the Komodo Dragon is dangerous.  I do also have tour companies listed (the best ones) that you can set up before you head to the island.  They are all TripAdvisor highly rated, so you won’t go wrong with any of them.

    Every year as the days grow shorter and the weather turns cold, I look to escape the wintery mix wet cold weather that Pittsburgh has to offer.  Typically we would go to Disney World, but as my kid gets older, the magic seems to fade.

    I’ve been looking for something a little different than the same old beach, and Komodo Island Indonesia might just be a great adventure for the whole family. Komodo Island National Park seems like a great place to visit while we are there.

    On a side note, we had a Komodo dragon here at our local zoo whose name was, “Noname.” When I took my kid to the zoo for the first time, he was actually her favorite animal!

    I must say that this article is wonderful. Although I was once in Indonesia I really did not heard about this island. When I see this pictures, I want to be there immediately.

    I live in South Florida and have been surrounded by beaches my whole life…but pink beaches is something I’ve gotta see! I’d definitely love to take a vacation to Komodo Island sometime soon to experience some of these awesome attractions and just unwind, even though Komodo Dragons kinda freak me out! A place like this just looks perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life to just enjoy nature and the aesthetics of Indonesian culture.

      Yep Ryan, I totally agree and I live in south Florida too.  I have seen black, brown and white sand beaches.  But I have yet to see a pink beach.  There really are not a whole of places that have pink beaches, but I love the beach and this would be amazing!

    This article is loaded with great information. I am intrigued by Komodo Dragons and Komodo Island looks awesome! I did not know there are over 17,000 islands in Indonesia, seems like the view from the plane alone woud be worth the trip! Thanks for all the incredible detail about the Nightlife, restaurants and thing to do!! Have you been here yourself? What do you recommend as a good amount of time to spend here to get a good feel for the area? Seems like a lot to see and do.

      Hi Dave and thank you for visiting Komodo Island Indonesia.  No, this is one place I have not been.  It is on my bucket list because I know friends who have went, and they said it is absolutely beautiful.  I would love to see the Komodo Dragons myself, what an awesome sight!  In my personal opinion, 2 weeks is what I would recommend.  That way you can do a good amount of just relaxing, and still have plenty of time for exploring and possibly doing a couple tours.  My friends did a week, and they said that was definitely not enough time.

    Komodo Island, the way you have described it and all of the beautiful pictures make it sound like a great place to see.  I have never been to Indonesia, but I will add Komodo Island to my list of places to see.  The pink beach looks absolutely beautiful, and to be able to see a Komodo Dragon in its natural habitat would be so amazing.  I like how you have included best places to eat, and their price points, it sounds like the restaurant Warung Mama is perhaps one to avoid, if you don’t want to be among tourists.  When travelling I like to experience local culture, and eat where locals eat.

    I can’t wait to visit Cunca Rami Waterfall. How beautiful and impressive Cunca Rami waterfall is with those abundant beautiful pools that offer a refreshing, natural swimming experience. I can’t wait to enjoy a fantastic day trip from Labuan Bajo.

    I truly want to see that Batu Bolong Reef, because it is truly world class dive site. I like how your site provides education. I thought that sands were either white or black. What great knowledge you impart by telling us readers that Komodo Island is a Natural Wonder of Nature and that it’s one of seven pink beaches on the planet. I’m taking my children on this vacation because of the beauty and education value.
