The Komodo archipelago is famous for Komodo dragons, giant lizards that can measure up to 3 metres (9.8 ft) long. However, unlike neighboring islands of Komodo and Rinca that are teeming with the ferocious lizards, on Padar island the Komodo dragon is extinct.
The topography of the island is rugged, with steep volcanic mountains and hills set against deep bays. Padar has dry climate, with only bushes and grassland vegetation covering the island, creating savanna hills. Padar island has four deep bays with beaches in different colors, most of them are white sands, while some beaches has grey and pink sands. The sea surrounding the island has several sites popular for scuba diving and snorkelling.
