How to get to Pink Beach

 

Pink Beach is located in Komodo National Park, on Komodo Island. All trips to Komodo Island (but not necessarily to Komodo National Park – if the trip includes Rinca Island only) have Pink Beach on their menu.

 

The length of time for leisure at the beach varies. In the case of our trip, we were granted 45 minutes – until the cook prepared the lunch.

 

Tips before you visit Pink Beach

 

The beach owes its name to the coral sand that, if you place your head at the right angle, looks pink(ish). From wrong angles, it looks regular yellow. Pink or not-so-much, the beach is nice. And even nicer is the coral reef you have to swim over to get to the island from a boat.

 

In fact, the main reason for boats to come here is the reef, not the beach. Beautiful, pristine, full of life and color.

 

But if you aren’t a big fan of snorkeling and you just want to waste time on the beach, you should consider swimming in shoes instead of fins (or barefoot). It will allow you to climb the little hill near the beach, from where you’ll have the panoramic view on Komodo Island (including Pink Beach). Some people tried to climb it barefoot but failed. And swimming back to a boat to get the shoes (the boats are anchored further from the reef, not to destroy it) takes time and energy.
