Komodo Dragons by Land or Sea?

Seeing these iconic lizards, the world’s largest, on their home turf is magical, prehistoric almost. Lazily walking along the beach, they patrol the islands of Rinca and Komodo detecting food with forked tongues – ready to devour their prey with sharp serrated teeth. It is true to say that the best way to explore this area is by staying on board a boat as this allows access to hidden bays, less discovered islands and secret spots.

Boats such as Rascal, Tiger Blue, SeaTrek and Aqua Blu are amongst the best with Alexa the dream voyage for two. As with this itinerary, and for those wanting to remain on terra firma then base yourself in Labuan Bajo at the Plataran or the Sudamala Resort and take a day boat to explore the islands – ideally private to allow for flexibility and a more bespoke experience.

Coffee Culture

Traditionally, time spent in Bali naturally focuses around the beautiful but often busy spots of Ubud and the coast. Journey three hours north via rice paddies, small farming communities and ancient temples to reach coffee plantations such as Monduk Monding. With a cooler climate it is ideal for walking and gives a feeling of hidden Bali.

For those with more time, travel further to reach the dry, coastal landscape of West Bali National Park and stay at The Menjangan, within touching distance of Java. Snorkel and dive this remote part of Bali for a unique and peaceful experience.

Clare was terrific! At the last minute, I did a complete change of my plans, and she was incredibly graceful and positive about changing everything. The livaboard she recommended was great. I thoroughly enjoyed--and appreciated--working with her.
