Popular flights are operated by: AirAsia, Batik, Citilink and Lion Air.
Private Komodo Tour: A Personalized Experience
If you prefer a more intimate and customized experience, a private Komodo tour is the perfect option. With a private tour, you’ll have the freedom to tailor your itinerary to your interests and schedule.
Whether you want to focus on wildlife encounters, scuba diving, or simply relaxing on pristine beaches, a private tour offers the ultimate personalized adventure. These private tours are offered by many operators and dive centers around Labuan Bajo but also the popular dive resorts and hotels such as Ayana or Sudamala.
3 Day Komodo Tour
For those looking to truly immerse themselves in the wonders of Komodo National Park, a 3 day Komodo Island tour is the ideal choice. Either land based and using a speedboat or by joining a liveaboard, the 3 days tour is the most popular choice.
Over the course of three days, you’ll have ample time to explore the park’s stunning landscapes such as Padar Island, visiting the stunning Pink Beach, and observe the fascinating Komodo dragons up close.
But there are other things to see as well, especially the Flying Foxes at Kalong island during a stunning display of colors at sunset.
Choosing a Komodo Tour Operator
Of course, choosing your tour operator is paramount because you will find many options, both local as well as foreign owned. The hotels and resorts in Komodo provide the same tours as well but at different prices so it all depends on what type of service you are ultimately looking to get.
If you wish to save a buck, you’ll get the best offers from the tour operators in Labuan Bajo. A warm recommendation we can make is that you read carefully the online reviews on Google and TripAdvisor. Not enough reviews or strangely written ones should be avoided.

Attractions and Activities
Without a shadow of a doubt, the main attraction are the Komodo Dragons but Komodo has so much more to offer.
Komodo Dragon encounters
Prepare to be captivated by an extraordinary rendezvous with the legendary Komodo dragons. These magnificent creatures, the apex predators of their realm, are both a testament to the resilience of nature and a symbol of raw, untamed beauty.
Witnessing them in their natural habitat on Komodo Island, basking in the sun or stealthily stalking their prey, is an experience that evokes a sense of awe and admiration. Visiting the dragons on Komodo Island is the best because you will truly see them in their natural habitat compared to if you would be visiting the newly developed Rinca Island where it’s more like an organized zoo.

Hiking Padar Island
Hiking Padar Island is an experience you won’t want to miss during your Komodo Island tour. The trek to the summit is an enjoyable challenge, and as you make your way up the stairs, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.
The picturesque panorama of turquoise waters, crescent-shaped beaches, and rugged hills will leave you stunned. As you hike along, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment, and once you reach the top, the stunning vista will make every step worthwhile.
Take a moment to soak in the scenery because the hike although not difficult, it’s not easy neither.
Travel tip: Make a special note if you plan to use a drone at Padar Island as you must purchase a special ticket from Labuan Bajo which at this moment costs 1,000,000 IDR.
Enjoy the Pink Beach
Most of the Komodo tours will visit at least 3-4 spots during the day including all that we have mentioned earlier. One of the highlights is enjoying the Pink Beach.
Spending time at the enchanting Pink Beach is a delightful way to unwind during your Komodo Island tour. As you approach this unique shore, you’ll be struck by the soft blush hue of the sand, a result of crushed red corals mixing with white sand.
