Flores’s Pink Beach
The Pink Beach on Komodo National Park’s Padar Island is an amazing natural phenomenon that you definitely don’t want to miss. Did you know that there are only 7 pink beaches in the world and 2 of them are in Indonesia? A smaller pink beach can also be found on Komodo Island.
The beach is pink instead of white or golden from red coral fragments. As expected, the pink beach here in the Komodo National Park is pretty popular with travellers as most have the beach on their so-called Bucket List. The waters right off the pink beach, just like the rest of Komodo National Park is amazingly clear and clean, home to a plethora of marine life – great for swimming, snorkelling and diving.
A visit to the pink beach would give you a calming and relaxing experience as the islands that both pink beaches are on are uninhabited. Sunbathe, stroll along the beach and of course, take that epic Instagram shot that would really liven up your feed!
It’s easy enough to get to the pink beach on either Padar or Komodo Island – simply rent a boat from Labuan Bajo, or make sure it is in the list of venues that you will visit when you book your tour package.
– There are no accommodations on Padar or Komodo Island save for some local villages
– Bring your camera for that epic Instagram shot and a change of clothes
– Do not litter!
