The Attraction of Pink Sand Beach Indonesia.
Apart from Indonesia, pink beaches can also be found in other countries such as Italy, Greece, the Philippines, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and the Caribbean Islands. But in Indonesia, we have Pink Beach on Komodo Island, and here are some of its attractions:
1. Pink Sand
The pink color in question apparently lies in the expanse of the sand. However, this color does not come from the grains of sand but from microscopic animals called Foraminifera. These super-mini-sized animals transfer pink pigment to the surface of the sea corals, and these corals are carried by the waves until they finally land on the shore. When it arrived on land, the corals were already disintegrated, and the debris mixed with sand.
2. Underwater Life
Snorkeling lovers are guaranteed to be satisfied when they come to this beach because hundreds of colorful fish species like to hide behind rocks. The rocks in this water have various colors and shapes. Some have a rough surface, and some are smooth. You can also find different types of other marine life.
3. Crystal Clear Water
Don’t worry if you can’t dive because various corals and fish in the water also can be seen from the shoreline. This is because the water at Pink Beach is apparent. But the water on this beach looks bluish when viewed from a distance or a height.
4. Sea-sighting by Boat
Another option to enjoy a variety of beautiful marine life without diving is to take a wooden boat rented by local fishermen. Just bring your camera and take a peek at the underwater life on this beach from the boat. As for the diving equipment, it can be rented from the beach administrator.
