Pink Beach in Indonesia

This Pink Beach, on the Coast of Komodo Island, is possibly the most well-known of all the pink beaches in the country. This beautiful stretch of pink-colored sand, also known as Pantai Merah, reveals a world of surreal beauty. As a bonus, you can also swim or dive on its coral reefs, see some Komodo dragons in the wild, and even explore the enchanting bays along Komodo’s eastern side.

Why is the sand pink?

Your curiosity must still be lingering on the pink shade of the beach. Let me unveil the mix of nature’s secret recipe.

The combination of white sand, crushed red coral, and bright marine life creates a fascinating mix. On coral reefs, tiny red creatures known as Foraminifera create a red pigment. When these fragments of red coral mix with the white sand, they produce a pink blush down the shoreline. Just how amazing is that? It’s as if nature created her watercolor painting! So, when you are soaking up the sun rays on this one-of-a-kind beach paradise during your Bali holiday packages, you are actually relaxing on a canvas of wonders painted by nature.

How do you get there?

This pink beach is on Komodo Island, a small, isolated island in Indonesia. Most tourists arrive on day trips from the main island of Bali. The fishing town of Labuan Bajo, which has an airport and many other services, is the nearest city to the beach. A local airline operates small jet or turboprop flights to Labuan Bajo daily from Bali. Entry to the Komodo Islands is through Labuan Bajo. The drive to Labuan Bajo’s harbor from the airport takes around ten minutes. You can board a speedboat at Labuan Bajo and travel to Komodo. The journey from Labuan to Komodo takes about 2-3 hours. The journey is as much an appeal as the destination. So gather your wanderlust and set off towards Pink Beach near Bali to experience its charm!
