1. Pink Sand

Because the beach sand is pink, that's why this beach is known as “Pink Beach”. The pink color comes from a microscopic animal called Foraminifera which then gives the red pigment to the coral. The corals are carried by the waves towards the coast and then crushed into shreds and grains which now become beach sand.

The pink color is not only at one point, but along the coastline on Komodo Island  the sand is reddish pink. This proves that in this area there are quite a lot of Foraminifera animals. It is the mixing of red coral and white crystalline sand that causes the color to turn pink.
