Komodo LOB trip: The Pink Beach

Indonesia - Komodo LOB trip - Komodo Island - Featured image

After a grueling morning at Padar Island lolss, the next spot for our Komodo LOB trip on the second day was the Pink Beach! This is the second pink beach that I visited – the first one was in Lombok.

Read about the Pink Beach in Lombok here

Although I did not see the komodo dragons on the Komodo Island, as I saw them on Rinca Island, we at least set our feet on the Komodo Island by visiting the Pink Beach.

There were no warungs at the beach, so we took our lunch on the boat after our time at this place.

Basically the things that we did here were checking the underwater scenery and enjoying the beach. Well, actually there is one thing that we did not do here. It’s climbing the hill on the side of the beach, and to check (plus taking picture of) the beach from the top of the hill. I think climbing the hill here is not going to be as demanding as the Padar’s – but I did not climb it, so I can’t judge it by just guessing on what I saw haha. I think I did not go up to the hill, as I thought I’ve just have had an exercise in the morning and later after the Pink Beach, I would climb another hill again … So it’s better to save my energy for later haha!

As Komodo Island is a national park, so no boats can drop their anchors here. Then to get to the beach (if your boat does not have a small boat), there were some small boats that could take us to the beach, but their service is not for free. I think we paid them IDR50,000 for return trips.

I think if you and your friends decide to just snorkel when visiting Pink Beach, it is best for you all to just bring limited items only, if not … who will guard your stuff when you are snorkeling haha.

Well anyway, perhaps on my next visit to Pink Beach, I will try to go to the hill and get some photos from over there haha.

Mixed Up Already

The things that I love are movies, music, and travel. I have an extended family in the movies world, called MoviegoersID, and we love to hang out and watch the movie together. How about music? Well, do you know The Corrs? Yep, they are a very talented family/musician that I deeply love since high school! If you love them, then we might get a long well ;-) . My love to music then grow to Sugarland, Christina Aguilera, The Script, and of course the one and only Anggun. Travel is the love that grows in me very late. At around 2011, I fell in love with travelling, and I tried my best to travel each month since that time. You can contact me at mixedupalready@gmail.com .

    Interesting! I have lived on board for a few days in Tanjung Puting National Park before, but live on board across the sea sure looks different. I imagine fresh fishes on my plate everyday!
