Komodo National Park is famed for its monstrous lizards, but if you prefer not to have your abdomen ripped open by the fastmoving, splayclawed carnivores, the scuba diving there is fabulous.

In most places the sea is pristine and virtually untouched, thanks to the park’s remoteness.

The park in Nusa Tenggara Barat province’s West Flores consists of three islands – Komodo, Rinca and Padar.

It was established in 1980 to protect the Komodo dragon, found there and nowhere else on earth, and its status as a World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve further indicates how sensitive the flora and fauna are.

I have dived in many wonderful places, but most pale in comparison to the colour and splendour of West Flores.

Most of the reefs are in immaculate condition. The coral is healthy
