Pink Beach in Komodo Island, Indonesia (Photo by

Pink Beach, as the name suggests, is one of the seven pink beaches on the planet. This incredible beach gets striking colors from microscopic animals called Foraminifera, which produce red pigments on coral reefs. For this reason, this is called the “Pantai Merah” or “Red Beach” in the local language.

When small fragments of red coral join white sand, this produces a soft pink color that is seen along the coastline. Apart from the Pink Beach itself, several small segments along the eastern bay of Komodo Island also have a pink color.

Located within the Komodo National Park area, with clear and calm water makes this beach the perfect place for snorkeling, especially since coral reefs just below the surface are home to hundreds of marine species of plants and animals.

With only a 15 minute boat trip from the Loh Liang boat dock, this beach is a comfortable place to relax in the sun or cool off in the water after a day of trekking in the national park.
