Clown Fish playing in his comfortable anemone, underwater view of Komodo National Park Indonesia


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.
