The famous Komodo Island lays right in between its 2 bigger sisters, Sumbawa and Flores islands. Considered as one of the most beautiful places in the world, the Komodo Archipelago has been declared an Indonesian National Park in 1980, and becomes a part of the UNESCO patrimony in 1989. It shelters a strange inhabitant that can reach 3 meters long and weighing 150 kg, the famous Dragon of Komodo (Varanus Komodoensis), which today counts up to 4,000 people eaten alive.
Komodo diving is famous for its incredible underwater biodiversity.
