Spectacular Komodo, its steep hillsides jade in the short wet season (December to March) and frazzled by sun to a rusty tan that makes its crystal waters pop the rest of the year, is the largest island in Komodo National Park. A succession of peninsulas spread east, each providing a different perspective with some fringed in pink sand due to red coral offshore.

On its south coast is the entrance to Loh Liang and the PHKA office, where boats dock and guided walks and treks start. The fishing village of Kampung Komodo is a 30-minute boat ride south of Loh Liang.
