No, this Island of Dragons is quite real… I am of course referring to the Island of Komodo, part of Komodo National Park in Indonesia.
And while the dragons that live there are closer to crocodiles than fire breathing monstrosities, they are an endangered species that live in a very small, very specific, and very beautiful part of the world:

From the video’s description:
The Komodo National Park is a national park located in the east of Indonesia. This national park consist of three large islands (Rinca, Komodo, & Padar) and numerous of small islands. The national park was established to protect the Komodo Dragon, an endemic species from the area and other marines biodiversities. This national park is registered in the New 7 Wonder of Nature. The national park is the favorite destination for ecotourism, the national park have it’s own attractiveness under the sea and over the land.
