Read more about Komodo National Park

Established in 1980, Komodo National Park encompasses the three main islands of Komodo, Rinca and Padar along with dozens of smaller islands, islets and barren rocks. Originally a terrestrial national park set up to protect the Komodo dragon, over time it expanded to include what lies beneath and it is now a massive terrestrial and marine national park encompassing almost 2,000 square kilometres.

While the Komodo dragons remain the best-known image of the park -- they brand the park's official logo -- and are the main reason most come to visit, they are equalled in their beauty by the undersea wonderworld that surrounds the park's islands.

Within the park's boundaries, visitors will be able to experience some of the best snorkelling and diving in the entire Indonesian archipelago and enjoy a rugged, stunning landscape that is truly an experience to behold.
