Komodo is an adventurer's paradise and one of the most highly sought after locations for travelers. In this article, I talk about my Indonesian vacation and highlight some of Komodo's hidden wonders.

Komodo Indonesia


Located in South East Asia, Komodo is one of the most remote locations throughout the world. In this part of the world, islands are everywhere. In fact, Komodo is only one of 17,508 islands that make up the Republic of Indonesia.

Komodo Island itself only has a few thousand living habitants, making up a surface area of 390 square kilometers. Komodo is part of the Lesser Sunda chain of islands and forms part of the Komodo National Park.

What makes Komodo special? Well, there’s actually many things that make Komodo unique. For one, it’s a hot spot for travelers. With the amazing diving and marine life, Komodo attracts visitors from all around the world. There’s also the pink beach, yes, you heard me right. It’s so rare, there’s only seven pink beaches that are known to exist in the world.

Komodo Island And Dunia Baru

Yes, Komodo Island has a lot to offer to any adventurer or thrill seeker. The landscape itself offers some of the greatest nature photos you could ever take. After all, the top things you can do in Komodo are all related to nature. From the crystal clear water and diving to coral gardens or trekking, the natural appeal of this beautiful island is something to adore.

If you want to get to Komodo Island, you only have two options, by plane or by water. If you choose by water, you may want to consider the beautiful Dunia Baru. The Dunia Baru is one of Indonesia’s prime luxury yacht charters and provides a host of activities you can pick with a custom itinerary.

The Dunia Baru can hold up to 14 guest, giving you plenty of room to invite the whole family. It has seven gorgeous cabins and a crew that’s second to none. I’ve never felt so welcomed and the professionalism throughout our experience with them was amazing.

One of the activities in our itineraries was snorkeling. This is an activity the whole family can enjoy safely. I had heard Indonesia’s coral fields are quite the experience and it didn’t disappoint. This was the first time we went snorkeling outside of doing so in the backyard pool. The coral gardens are breathtaking. You tend to forget it’s living, but it’s so peaceful. Almost like being in a dream.

The whole family was impressed with the amount of different species of fish. The fish are very friendly, as if you’re not there at all or pose any threat. The fish dancing through the corals give you a ton of photo chances. The corals even attract the sea turtles, one of the most graceful species of turtles in the world. Seeing the turtles effortlessly travel the coral is an experience I’ll never forget.

Komodo Bay And Komodo National Park

In the Komodo Bay, you can even watch the manta rays gather. There’s no question snorkeling and diving should be on your list if you plan to visit Komodo.

You can’t visit Komodo and not see the Komodo dragons living in their natural environment. I knew the dragons were big, but they’re a lot bigger in person. Some Komodo dragons can grow up to be 10 feet long and weigh well over 150 pounds. They’re certainly dangerous, but they were never a danger. When you see the dragons in their natural habitat, you gain a whole new level of appreciation for them and their ability to adapt to this tropical world.

Have you ever seen a pink beach? Komodo owns one of only a few known pink beaches in the world. I wanted to make sure I had the opportunity to see this rare beach. Prior to this, I’ve never been to Asia before. I’m glad Indonesia was my first choice.

While Komodo Island is one of the most beautiful islands in Indonesia, there’s plenty of more locations to travel too. Komodo National Park was established in 1980 with the main purpose of preserving the Komodo dragon. The park includes 3 major islands, Komodo, Rinca and Padar.

Komodo National Park has one of the world’s richest marine environments. In the vast area, there’s over 1,000 different species of fish. If you’re a diver, this is paradise. The coral reef has over 200 reef building coral, as well as 70 species of sponges.

No matter if you’re nature lover, an adventurer or you’re just looking for a one-of-a-kind experience with the family, I couldn’t recommend the Dunia Baru and Komodo more. This was an experience I’ll never forget and the kids are still talking about a year later.
