The land of dragons

When you arrive on Komodo Island, you may be tempted to think we’ve taken a wrong turn and instead arrived on Jurassic Park’s infamous Isla Nublar. But don’t worry—Komodo’s namesake dragons only look like dinosaurs. (And we’re fairly certain there aren’t any science experiences-gone-amuck happening in the peaceful hills.) One of the New7Wonders of Nature and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Komodo National Park is home to more than just the largest lizard in the world.

Aside from the obvious reptilian highlights, you’ll also want to visit Komodo’s pink sand beaches, one of only seven places in the world with these distinct shores. And speaking of pink beaches, their unique hue is thanks to the coral that surrounds the island, which is also home to a truly astonishing amount of sea life. Strap on your fins, mask, and snorkel to explore an entirely different—and equally beautiful— world beneath the waves.
