You’ll pass it on your left after a 30-minute ride from Ende towards Bajawa.
After all the enthusiastic reading about the unique features of the Blue Beach, we expected to see some nature’s wonder. In reality, the Blue Beach is quite plain. It is full of gray/bluish stones you can see anywhere else in the world. The real blue stones are a rarity, collected by the local people and sold away a long time ago.
But it is worth a stop and a short visit if you travel from Ende to Bajawa. One reason is a picturesque location of the Blue Beach – in a little bay, the best visible from the tarmac road. So take a picture right after you leave your car, before descending to the beach. Another reason is the people collecting the stones and selling them by the road. It was very interesting to watch the process of collecting and sorting the stones into categories according to their color and size.
