If you’ve been on the lookout for your own ‘mother of dragons’ moment you may find it here. Komodo is another one of Indonesia’s 17,508 islands and it sits just off Timor Leste. It has beautiful bays ringed in pink sand, volcanic slopes, rugged terrain and a few fiery residents…

Komodo is home to over 5,000 of the world’s largest lizards, the Komodo dragon. This is their native home and they roam freely throughout the UNESCO World Heritage Site, so when you’re taking that walk or going for a dip don’t be surprised if you have a feisty companion tagging along.

Seriously, be careful.
