The climate in Komodo National Park is one of the driest in Indonesia. The national park has virtually no rainfall for about 8 months of the year and is heavily influenced by the monsoon rains. Daytime temperatures from summer to mid-autumn are around 40 degrees. Because of this dry climate, the land is uneven, with rocky hills, and plant species are limited to grass, shrubs, orchids, and trees. The sea area has a rich and colorful landscape. The national park is part of the Asia-Pacific Coral Triangle and is full of a variety of seaweed beds, colorful coral reefs and dense mangrove forests. Here you can snorkel and see the underwater world, in particular, manta rays - large stingrays. In local waters you can see sperm whales, dolphins, sea turtles. And the beaches themselves on Komodo are very picturesque: there are snow-white ones, there are reddish or pink ones.
