Pink Beach

One of the most visited beach in Komodo is Pink Beach. It is popular with the color of the sand in pink and also stunning underwater life. Pink sand is formed from pieces of red coral. But the truth is a kind of amoeba microscopic animals called Foraminifera which produce red or pink light on the reef. If we take a pinch of sand was then shown a red sand in between the white sand. When the waves sweeping the sand and pull it, then sand the color turned into dark pink. Cool! Grains of sand was smooth and soft, so delicious when walking or sunbathing on it. 

Located at the north east of Komodo entry point called Loh Liang, Pink Beach is one of a must-stop beach after trekking in Komodo Island. It is just less than 15 minutes with the boat from the Loh Liang boat jetty. Once you are there, you are just tempting to jump off the boat and start swimming. Coral reefs here are are so healthy and colorful which makes it always perfect for snorkeling. Whenever you want to hang out on the beach for sun bathing or playing with your tour mates, you are simply swim toward the beach. The sand is so perfect that makes you do not want to leave the beach. Some big liveaboard board often stop over for playing beach volley ball or fresbying.  

Padar Island

Padar Island is the third largest island in the Komodo National Park. It is located in the south central of the park, between Komodo and Rinca Island.

In the past, Padar was one of the island in Komodo where there were dragons live. Along with the illegal hunting activities by human being, they are slowly disappeared and almost unable to see them anymore, even once. The cause is simply because of the lack of foods, like deer and wild boar. Their extinction can be because they just died alone without any food to eat or prolonged hunger or they can be migrated to nearest island, Rinca. Nowadays, the island remains empty with no dragons. However, other wild animals such as wild boars are still around daily.

Although the island has no dragons existed, the island is one of the best charming spot of trekking. Those who love photographic, this is perhaps the best place for spectacular photos.
