The Komodo Island is a UNESCO World Heritage site, that will sweep you off your feet. This magical island is so much different from anything you’ve seen before. It represents just one of the 17,500 islands that are a part of the Republic of Indonesia. The biggest reason why Komodo is so unique is the very rare Komodo dragon, but it is not the only one. Ideal for people who enjoy adventures of all types. Another huge reason why people decide to visit this tropical island is their amazing diving and snorkeling location. Since the island is protected by UNESCO, the sea world and wildlife are thriving. Let’s start with the Komodo Dragons. This is a rare type of lizard, and the largest lizard in the world too. They inhabit the Komodo National Park, made of three islands: Rinca, Komodo, and Padar. Rinka and Komodo have over 50,000 dragons as a part of their natural fauna. Another must-visit attraction is the Pink Beach, completely covered with pink sand. It doesn’t get any better than this.
