Padar Island is located between Komodo and Rinca Islands, east of Komodo Island. To the south east of Pillar Island is a popular dive site called Pillarsteen or Pillar Rock. This is an expansive dive site made up of pinnacles, walls, sloping reefs, caves and swim-throughs. This is another dive site that is not suitable for beginner divers with strong currents and surge. Although it is not necessary to dive deep here it is possible to descend below 40m.
The deeper section of the dive site to the south area has some caves and caverns. The wall to the west is covered with colorful soft corals of yellow and orange plus sea fans, sponges and sea squirts. In the shallow areas is sloping reef with large leather corals, yellow sea cucumbers (holothurians) and purple fire urchins that divers will regret coming into contact with. Reef fish include sweetlips, angelfish, butterflyfish and black snapper. Schools of fusilier and surgeonfish are present as are lionfish, scorpionfish and moray eels.
