Located on the Komodo Island, Pink Beach is a popular attraction, due to its light pink sand. A mix of white and red sand, it is one of the seven “pink” beaches in the world.
Getting to the Pink Beach
The easiest way to reach Komodo is via Bali since it is well connected to the airports. Once in Bali, tourists can take the daily flight to Labuan Bajo offered by Trans Nusa. A tourist can reach Labuan Bajo via a connecting flight from Merpati Nusantara. Once reaching Labuan Bajo, there is a port 10 min away from the airport, where it is possible to hire speedboats to take you to Komodo Island. One has the choice of docking either directly on Pink Beach or the other side of the island and trekking 4 hours through the stunning coral cliffs.
Activities & recreation
There are no restaurants, although the home stays provide simple meals. As for recreation, most visitors opt to snorkel, as there are not any establishments. There are also no lifeguards, but the waters are safe under fair weather conditions.
Hotels near the beach
Most visitors prefer to spend the night in Labuan Bajo, as the island does not have the most comfortable settlements. For a more modest approach, tourists can stay at one of the laconic home stays on Komodo island.
