Aptly named Pink Beach, this magnificent blush hued shoreline gets its vivid colour from microscopic organisms called Foraminifera, which are essentially single-celled creatures with shells that are sometimes red and pink in colour.
These shells, mostly made up of organic compounds, sand grains or calcium carbonate, then get broken down into tiny fragments. When fused with white sand, these specks leave a soft, cotton candy coloured tint on the coast.
While this stretch of pink sand is arguably an attraction on its own, the shallow azure waters and fantastic underwater gardens at the Pink Beach are no less alluring, with an abundance of marine life and corals that are any ocean lover’s dream.
Stopping by the Pink Beach is one of the highlights of every Komodo National Park boat tour and for the purposes of environmental sustainability, the unspoiled, picture-perfect beach is not accessible by public ferries, making it all the more stunning.

With a tiny land size that is no larger than a football field, this crescent-shaped sandbar in the middle of the ocean is a supreme spot for relaxing, snorkelling or simply taking a dip in its crystal clear waters.
With only about 6,000 of these world famous beasts left on the planet, the endangered Komodo dragons have inculcated both fear and intrigue for decades.
Beyond Komodo National Park is Wae Rebo, an isolated village perched 1,100 meters above sea level in a valley of mountains, and home to about 50 people of the Indonesian indigenous Manggarai ethnic group.
While it is first and foremost known for its ancient dragons, Komodo National Park is home to a sheer abundance of marine life that will leave you wishing for more time under its pristine blue waters.
