Pink Beach in Komodo National Park
Pink Beach is located in Komodo National Park and is crazy beautiful! As I looked through photos online, I really believed that the beaches had a hint of pink and the rest was photoshop, but it’s not! The contrast of the clear blue waters and the pink sand make for the most breathtaking sight.
In this guide, I will walk you through how to get to Komodo National Park, how to book a tour through the islands, and some photos to inspire your trip to Pink Beach.
HOW TO GET TO PINK BEACH IN KOMODO NATIONAL PARK
Now I must say there are several Pink Beaches in Komodo National Park. Usually, when people refer to Pink Beach in the Komodo Islands, they are referring to the one on Rinca Island. However, our boat trip opted for the not so crowded beaches instead of heading to the main “Pink Beach”.
In order to get to Komodo National Park, you will need to take a flight to Labuan Bajo. This is the main airport in Flores and this is where the boats to Komodo National Park leave from. I always book using SKYSCANNER as I have never found cheaper flights elsewhere. Our flight from Bali to Labuan Bajo was roughly $100 USD round trip.
BOOKING A TOUR TO KOMODO NATIONAL PARK
Depending on your travel style you can either book a boat tour once you arrive in Labuan Bajo, or you can prebook your trip through a company such as LE PIRATE.
Thomas and I booked our trip through LE PIRATE EXPLORER three months in advance as we knew for sure it was something we wanted to do in Indonesia. LE PIRATE is a trendy company that offers everything from beach cottages to liveaboards, that take you through the Komodo Islands. Check out the link for the current pricing and details of the trip.
If you are a last minute kind of person, fear not, as there are SO many boats leaving every day, you will have no problem booking a tour.
There are several different trips you can take it just depends on your travel style and budget. Thomas and I did the 4 days and 3-night trip and I think this was the perfect amount of time. I mean I could live on one of those boats in Komodo National Park but that’s not the point HA!
EXPLORING PINK BEACH IN KOMODO NATIONAL PARK
As I mentioned earlier, our tour opted for the less crowded Pink Beach and we were actually lucky enough to visit two. One was definitely much pinker than the other but that is just fine! In case you were wondering, the sand is Pink because of the red corals that get broken down and eventually become sand!
Remember if you do decide to visit Pink Beach, please do not take sand home with you! If everyone took sand home with them there would be no Pink Beach left! I tried to advise that to one of the fellow passengers but he didn’t seem to care. Be courteous of this planet, it has already given us so much!
