The world has many unspeakable gorgeous wonders that you can’t miss at least once in your life. In Indonesia, thankfully, there’s Pink Beach Komodo Island that continually makes the list of Earth’s most stunning pink beaches. It’s hardly arguable how striking the view is, especially when your camera angle and sunlight are at their best—everything seems to look heaven-sent.
If you need more reasons to visit Komodo Island other than Komodo dragons sightseeing, coming to this beach is one of the wisest bets. Read more to see why taking in the sight of this island’s wonder should be on your travel bucket list next.
Not all beaches in the world have gorgeous pink sand, which is why Indonesia is so blessed for having one right in Komodo Island. Pink Beach here is also called “Pantai Merah” in the Indonesian language, where the word “Merah” is actually translated as “red” in English instead. The term represents the red sands that happen thanks to the leftover of red pigment from nearby coral reefs by pieces of microscopic living named Foraminifera. The red sands then combine with white ones, producing a subtle color of breathtaking pink you’ll soon witness once you’re here.
Scientific process aside, however, the beach won’t fail to present nature’s gift through not only its unique sand but also crystal blue water and vibrant underwater coral gardens—all of which offer thrilling Komodo water sport activities you’ll hardly forget.
Those who are first-timers in snorkeling and diving are exceptionally welcome here, as well as photography hunters who plan to capture the fairytale-like scenery on the island. Moreover, you don’t even have to worry about its obviously stunning sunset.
Some visitors attempt to bring the sands back home, due to its unusual color . Collect some sands or corals to fly with you is against Indonesian law, since it is located in a protected area . Your luggage will be checked by the airport authority before the departure check in. So, we highly recommend that you never attempt to collect the sands or coral in the national park to bring back home.
Pink Beach is reached approximately 4 hours from Labuan Bajo by boat and 15 minutes from Komodo island on a normal weather.
