DAY 2:RINCA ISLAND - PINK BEACH       ▼

Our adventure continues today!

The dragon’s lair…

We will sail to Loh Buaya, the ranger station on the island of Rinca that is one of the 3 major islands where the dragons live. During the cruise, you will realize that the sea is like a great lake dotted with hundreds of tiny islands, most of them uninhabited, or with only a few fishermen, who moor in them to rest or spend the night. Once on the island, we have to enter the office of the rangers to register and pay the national park fee. There we will be assigned a ranger who will accompany us at all times while we are inside the island. 

Safety information

Rangers always carry a long pole with a V-shaped tip, to make dragons keep their distance from us. They will give us a brief explanation of behavior in the park and what we can see. The dragons may sometimes make sudden moves so opening your eyes and keeping silent will always be the best advice.  Watch your back as there might be also one behind you or up on the trees. The Ranger will always be leading the group, showing us all the species that he sees during trekking. 

In addition to the Komodo dragons, we can see water buffalo, macaque monkeys, cockatoos, wild horses, etc.

Snorkeling at Pink Beach…

At the end of the trek, we head back to the port and continue the cruise. Lunch will be provided on board. After a short while, we will reach Pantai Merah (Pink Beach) where we can do snorkeling in the middle of coral reefs full of life. Did you know that Indonesia is the most important center of marine biodiversity in the world? It is where the species of the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean come together with the endemic species of Indonesia. It makes Indonesia have the largest number of underwater species in the world. Well, you will be swimming in the middle of all that. 

In the late afternoon, we will continue sailing to Komodo Island.

At the end of trekking, we go to the port and continue sailing. After a short navigation, we arrive at Manta Point where we have the chance to see huge “blankets” in the waters as we snorkel. Sometimes, we can even see them from the boat. Lunch is served on board.
