Padar Island

The third largest island that makes up Komodo National Park

Padar is located between Komodo and Rinca, often dubbed as the best place to hike in the area and currently on trend with visitors to the region due to its unique view of tri-coloured beaches from the top of the hill.

The main point of attraction is hiking to the viewpoint from which you could see the breathtaking view of the whole island. From the top, the rugged brown peaks of the dry savannah set as a contrasting background for the natural blends of the tri-coloured beaches of gray, white, and pink before flowing seamlessly into the turquoise ocean.

Please bear in mind, that hiking in Padar Island is considered as medium level that may take up to one hour of fairly steep uphill to complete. Usage of proper trekking shoes is highly recommended.

Unlike its neighbouring islands of Komodo and Rinca, Padar Island is komodo-free.
