A Komodo Sailing Trip to Secret Islands
The slice of heaven is rarely featured on most holiday-makers bucket list, and that’s what makes this trip even better. Though it’s just 90 minutes flight from Denpasar, Flores is totally a world away from Bali’s wild night parties and celebrated coastal lifestyle. The wilderness of nature is the only wild thing you will find here.
Flores and the islands of Komodo National Park are dominantly occupied by green grasses, savannah, and lounging trees. Miles and miles of rolling hills are only split by a single highway, running from the western end to eastern end of the island with few cars passing by. Modernisation even seems to shy away at most of the surrounding island, leaving them totally bare and wild with only trekking trails runs along the wavy terrain.
A journey with Komodo Liveaboard is hard to be described by words alone. Indonesia is rarely the same, and Flores will show you how it really means. Tropical jungle stretched across the mainland where it peaked on volcanic mountains of Kelimutu and Inerie mountains, resembling Indonesian landscape in general. However, tucked in the eastern part of Indonesia, some of the islands are among the driest part of Indonesian archipelago. And it turns the over one-meter-high grass into gorgeous auburn path, which is more vibrant during the dry season.
Beyond the crisp savannah, pristine beaches ringed the islands. You might expect soft and white, sugary beaches, but the Komodo’s pink beaches are the real game changer. Colored beaches are rare beauty of the earth, and it’s one of the only seven beaches on the island. With this kind of varied, distinct topography, Flores will definitely take you to the other side of Indonesia. Almost like a secret island that no one knows about.
Idyllic and unspoiled, Flores and the surrounding islands looks like a slice of paradise that just fall from the sky itself. This is a gateway to remote adventure, a digital detox from your busy life. Without an internet connection, nothing will distract you from the stunning surrounding. Trekking, swimming, snorkeling, and immortalize the stunning landscape in your digital device will keep you busy for days - no need for internet check-in.
You gonna find yourself between the winds and swinging meadow with only few tourists around. Outside the mainland Flores, some island is totally unpopulated while some others are just inhabited by 2,000 thousand people, living side by side with the notorious Komodo Dragon who roams freely in their protected sanctuaries. This is where you can taste the Indonesian version of the wild west in its pure, unadulterated nature.
Dock to the Islands
The adventure of your Komodo Cruise doesn’t end once you come ashore. Rising to fame thanks to the Komodo Dragon, Flores and the Komodo National Park has become an increasingly must-go destination for true travelers, especially those who want a little escape from the hustle and bustle of neighboring Bali.
This is where the islands are ruled by high and undulating hills, the sun shines brightly almost throughout the year, and its tranquil waters gently lap more than 20 string of coastline of the isles. This means a lot of shores to explore on your Komodo tours, featuring picture-perfect hilly terrain overlooking the blue ocean and cluster of islets, sugary beaches, mangroves, lush slopes, and brownish dry grassland.
Komodo National Park is the most popular spot to dock. The park consist of three major islands which are equally famous; Komodo island, Rinca island, and Padar Island. These islands are the only places on earth where Komodo Dragons roam freely between the bushes and sunbathing on its shores. They share the islands with deer, wild buffalos, horses, wild boars, and other wildlife—some are their prey. This is where you can have live encounter with the largest reptile in the world, guided by professional rangers.
Aside from the wildlife, the national park will also entertain you with outstanding landscapes. The Padar island is home of the notorious four deep bays, multi-colored beaches. And yes, that includes the most-awaited pink beach.
Around the east of Flores, several small islands rose within reach to each other. The twin Sebayur islands, Siaba, Gili Lawa Darat, Kalong, and Kelor are to just name a few. Most of the islands offers open landscape with fantastic trek that can supply your social media feed for a lifetime!
Some of the islands offer snorkeling opportunity just a few meters off the shore, with rich corals to greet you. The sight can get more dramatic as you slide to the underwater world from the Pink beach, as you will see the baby pink sandy beach trails down to the seabed. Healthy Foraminifera—red coral reef—lining up at the shallow water, and you will know how the Pink beach got its name.
If you are thinking that Komodo National Park is the only place to find wildlife adventure, look no further than Kalong island. The island is almost entirely covered with mangroves—so thick you almost cannot see the land. And hanging from the treetops are thousands of bats, undisturbed by the eye of curious travelers.
The Komodo cruise cannot dock to this island, but the captain will try to get you as close as possible to the massive, mangrove-build cave if you wish to have a closer look to this wonderful creature. This small and mysterious island reveal its magic near the dusk, when the bats rush to fly from their home and chattering under the violet sky, looking for its food at the neighbouring islands. Don’t worry, they are not interested to your blood—fruits are more appealing to these wild flying foxes.
Some fly to Flores just for the Komodo Dragon, but the true traveler knows that exploring the less-discovered islands in between are the true travel gem. It’s a loss to just pass by the islands without taking time to venture on its wonders.
