Pantai Merah or simply, the pink beach Komodo Island, is one of seven pink sand beaches across the world. What makes the sand appear pink under the sun are microscopic residents, organisms called Foraminifera. They produce a red pigment on the coral reefs and leave small red particles behind that blend with the white sand, forming a soft pink tint that glows beautifully and is visible from the shore, water, and viewpoints on the hills.
This picture-perfect scenery is widely appreciated by photographers that seek to capture and sustain its beauty in a memorable photo. Moreover, it’s a favorite spot for relaxation and tanning and for visitors wanting to take a moment to indulge in and admire the beauty of Mother Nature.
