Details of your Trip
Day 1: Labuan Bajo – Padar – Pink Beach (Lunch) – Komodo – Kalong
Pick up around 8.00 – 8.30 am at your hotel and board to your boat. Our guide will present you the facilities, give you the safety instructions and describe you the itinerary. Our first destination will be Padar Island.
We will first sail to Padar. Padar Island is the third largest island in Komodo National Park after Komodo and Rinca Islands. For those who love photographic, this is perhaps the best place for spectacular photos. From the top of the hill you will enjoy a surreal panorama. It’s all surrounded by three turquoise bays, and curiously, each one of the bays’ beaches has different coloured sand: One is pearly white, another charcoal black, and a third is a very rare baby pink. It is a rare combination, a quirk of this unique island.
Then we will relax at Pink Beach which has pink sand along its coastline. Furthermore, the pink color is caused by the mixture of white calcium carbonate and the bright red skeletons of dead organ pipe corals which grow under its waters. Pink Beach also has various kind of amazing marine life and coral reefs. This is the perfect place to play with our full faced mask. Lunch will be served on site.
After we will sail to Komodo Islands. It’s the largest Island in the park. The rangers will suggest you 3 treks: one km, 3 km or 4.5 km trek. All the treks offer excellent wildlife viewing opportunities: Komodo dragons, water buffalo, wild horses, Timor deer, wild pigs and eagles and other fauna from the 276 species in the park.
After that we will enjoy the sunset in Kalong Island. Kalong is a small island covered by mangroves. It’s the home of thousands of bats. At the end of the day, when daylight is replaced by darkness, they leave their nest to get some food. The sky will be covered by these majestic creatures.
Day 2: Kanawa – Kelor – Labuan Bajo
On the morning, we will go to Kanawa Island. It’s considered as one of south-east Asia’s most idyllic islands, fully surrounded by spectacular reef. Snorkeling around Kanawa, in the pristine waters will make you discover thousands of fish species, turtles, corals and reef sharks, sometimes it is possible to see some mantas just around the arrival jetty. At the center of the island a hill guarantees astonishing 360 degrees views all over Komodo National Park, offering one of the world’s most spectacular sunsets.
While a delicious lunch will be served, we will head for Kelor Island. Kelor is a small uninhabited island. You will enjoy a peaceful atmosphere and unspoiled nature, get around and enjoy sightseeing. The water is clear and the sand is soft. Numerous types of fishes also live in the water, including clown fishes also named Nemo.
