There are only seven pink beaches in the world, yet two of them can be found in Indonesia. Here, in a secluded corner of Lombok, approximately a 2-hour drive from Mataram, you can find a beautiful curving arch of pink sand, framed by hills, meadows and forest. Unlike many of the beaches in east Lombok, where the waves grow quite large, Pink Beach offers a refuge from the pounding ocean currents and a safe place to swim or kayak in the placid warm waters just beyond the shore. This is a full-day excursion, ideal for those who seek an inexpensive tropical experience in a remote location away from the crowds.
What You Will Do
After breakfast at your hotel, drive for about 2 hours to the southeastern corner of Lombok to reach Tanjung Luar Harbour. From here, continue your journey by outrigger boat for approximately 20 minutes to Pulau Pasir/Pulau Gosong. This tiny islet (around 50m2) can only be visited during low tide. Continue with 10 minutes on outrigger boat to Gili Petelu, where multi-coloured fish and coral reefs will dazzle you as you snorkel the clear turquoise waters. After some leisure time on this islet,
proceed to Pink Beach. The sand gets its distinctive pink colour from crushed coral and natural minerals, bleached by sun and saltwater. Enjoy some swimming and sunbathing on the famous colourful beach, and then it’s back to your hotel for a leisure afternoon. (Picnic lunch is provided).
Why Book This: This trip takes you to 3 different islets on a motorized outrigger boat, and to one of Lombok’s most intriguing, yet unknown locations; the Pink Beach. This trip is perfect for those who love the sea, relaxing on the beach, sunbathing and snorkeling.
