4 Days / 3 Night trip
Pick up early morning at your hotel and board to your boat. A breakfast will be ready for you to charge the battery for this full day of adventure. Our guide will present you the facilities, give you the safety instructions and describe you the itinerary. Before leaving, we will make sure that the snorkeling gears fit to everybody to make sure you fully enjoy pink beach.
Our first destination will be 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.
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 that we will go to Manta Point. Manta Point offers excellent snorkeling experience. Reefs are laying from only 2 meters to 9 meters depth. It’s the perfect place to spot manta rays, a huge marine creature that can grow up to 4 meters wide. Manta Rays are one of the extinct animal on earth. Turtles, sharks, eagle rays, giant trevallies, huge clams, various kind of sponges, and cuttlefish are marine animals you may see during your snorkeling expedition.
Next morning, we will 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 colored 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 sail to Karang Makassar also known to be the manta rays area. We will use our speedboat to disembark you in a very small white sand beach island which emerges in the middle of the sea surrounded by turquoise water. This is the dream place to shoot idyllic pictures.
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.
In the morning, we will go to Sebayur Kecil which face another island, Sebayur Besar. In Indonesian or “bahasa”, “kecil” means small and “besar” means big. Sebayur Kecil is a small island which offers perfect conditions for snorkeling as the beach is pretty large and the reef is from one to five meters deep.
Then we will sail to Pengah Besar which has a beautiful beach. We especially like this beach because most of the time it’s free of other visitors.
Then 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.
Next morning, we will sail to Rangko Cave which has been discovered just a few years ago. We will approach the village of Rangko and use the speedboat to disembark you to the shoreline. Then there is a 15 minutes’ walk to the entrance. The sun ray will be the unique natural illumination of this cavity. Your eyes will need a few minutes to accommodate to the darkness and then you will notice many stalactites and below a natural pond where you could swim. The water is fresh and crystal clear. This is a spectacular natural pool.
