3. Kanawa

Truly heaven on earth, even on your first step on the docks of Kanawa island, you will be welcomed by a stunning view of the marine life through the crystal clear water. This island is also 32 hectares big with an incomparable natural view, making it seem like a private island.

The island is known for its crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches. If you manage to stay until 11 pm, one can experience the starry night sky lighting up the whole island as the electric power is turned off. 

4. Padar

You might have seen the beautiful island in a lot of pictures when you search for Komodo National Park because this is one of the most famous islands there. It is the third-largest island in the Komodo National Park and it is mostly covered with savannahs and a stunning landscape of hills.


It is surrounded by three beautiful bays. It has three main beaches with three different colored grains of sand, a white sandy one, a black charcoal one and a baby pink sandy beach. If you’re in luck, you might see manta rays, reptiles, dolphins and sometimes even whales on this island!

5. Komodo

True to its name, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the home to the largest lizards on earth, the Komodo Dragon. Other than these unique animals that are known to be the last of its kind, the landscape of the island is as amazing as seen in pictures.


Trekking up to the hills where you can see the bays of the islands from up high is truly a sight you do not want to miss. Preserving its natural beauty, the only accommodation available is guesthouses in the fishing village.

6. Seraya

With its majestic offshore reef, this tiny tropical island is a great escape away from the hustle and bustle of cities. As you stare into the clear and calm waters, all your stress is surely going to be relieved.

A place truly for those who are looking for peace and serenity. Of course, you can also enjoy swimming, snorkeling and even fishing around the island!

7. Rinca

Although Komodo Island is known for the place to spot a Komodo Dragon, you’d likely be seeing more of them at Rinca Island, where there is less impact from visitors and tourists. Basically untouched, this island is a natural habitat for the Komodo.

It is better to explore this beautiful island with a guide, or else you would either get lost or not know where to look around.

8. Kelor

If you're looking for serenity, unspoiled scenery, romantic and intimate nuance, you should really visit Kelor Island. The main attraction in Kelor is water sports, so don’t forget to bring a change of clothes. Other than that, the view is also incomparable with its stunning shorelines and the vast sea. Of course, this beautiful island is also perfect for snorkeling and diving.

A favorite spot on the island is a long wooden bridge going over the waters while overlooking a stunning view of the lush green trees of hills surrounding it. Experiencing this view while accompanied by hundreds of different fishes that are visible from the bridge, it really is paradise.

10. Kalong

Kalong is translated as Bats in the Indonesian language. Staying true to its name, the beautiful mangroves surrounding the island is home to thousands of bats. So prepare to see these little critters emerging out of their homes in a synchronized manner for a food hunt mission with a fiery sunset backdrop. Truly a view of a lifetime!
