Padar Island : an amazing view point
Padar Island is the third largest island in Komodo National Park after Komodo and Rinca Islands. Defended by strong currents and swell coming from the nearby Indian ocean, going to Padar Island is an adventure in itself. A one-hour trek to the top of Padar Kecil will bring you to a breathtaking panorama overlooking Komodo National Park. 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’s 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. Sunrise and sunset times are the best times of the day to do the trekking with endless changing color in the sky. For those who love photographic, this is perhaps the best place for spectacular photos.
