The fabulous Komodo National Park is situated between Asia and Oceania. Located between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores, the park offers you the opportunity to visit a seabed among the most beautiful in the world which will delight underwater explorers, young or old, equipped with diving tanks or a simple mask and snorkel.
The multitude of islands hold their share of magnificent landscapes; incredible bays, white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. The flora and fauna, on land or underwater, are simply breathtaking and explain why the site is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Komodo archipelago benefits from a very contrasted climate. The monsoon period that spans the months of January, February and March contrasts with the rest of the year when the climate is one of the driest in Indonesia.
The Sunda Islands also offer a great diversity of religion; Sumbawa is mainly Muslim, Flores is 85% Christian and Sumba is mainly animist. These islands are relatively poor; the communities survive mainly from fishing, agriculture and more marginally from tourism.
Flores is the most visited island; the Kelimutu volcano and its mesmerising lakes, the magnificent Labuan Bajo bay or meeting the Ngada people in the center of the island are some of the other attractions of this place.
