Ever been to Pink Beach Lombok or Tangsi Beach? Well, Tangsi Beach in Lombok, NTB is special beachm destination in Lombok. There is one beach in Lombok named after Pink Beach Lombok whose real name is Pantai Tangsi. For those who have never been to the famous Pink Beach Lombok on Komodo Island, Maybe you can visit Pink Lombok beach first.
Pink Lombok Beach (Pink Beach Lombok) or Tangsi Beach is one of the few beaches in the world that has a unique pink colored sand. This beach is pink due to white sand that blends with the grains of a dead red coral. So that it has a reddish effect after mixing with sea water and then being exposed to sunlight and making the pink color of the sand more visible.
This Pink Beach Lombok seems not yet well known, because rarely travel agents offer packages tour to this place. That is precisely what made everyone more curious and wanted to go there. But from the search results to Google it turned out that in addition to the long distance, access to the road to it was still damaged. So many tourists or travel agents are reluctant to go there.
One that makes tourist curious about this beach is because there is the word ‘pink’ tucked after the word beach. Is the sand really that pink? Usually beach sand is white, brown or even black. Because sometimes some tours, selling excessive names to attract visitors who in reality are not same as visitor expectations. But, how about Pink Beach Lombok?
The trip to Pink Beach Lombok takes almost 2 hours with a journey that is quite tiring and fuel draining . For road instructions already available, especially in areas that have already begun to be deserted. And the most unpleasant is the damaged road when it is near the location of Pink Beach Lombok. It might be around 2 km. The only thing I have in everyone imagination is, what if the motorcycle tire breaks or the motorbike breaks down? Because the left corner of the right hand corner is rarely found in people’s homes.
However, once arrived at the location all tired immediately disappeared. Beautiful beach with clean sea water spread, which makes anyone want to swim immediately. But wait a minute! where the pink color makes this beach known as the Pink Beach Lombok. Need careful observation and search for this one. After being seen again, the pink color is there and is real. The color is seen when the sand is exposed to the waves of the sea.
Pink gradation on the sand can be seen. After being closely observed, there were pink grains of sand mixed with white sand. That makes the sand look pink. This pink color can not be seen if the sun is too hot. So if there is a photo on the internet that shows a very clear pink color in Pink Beach Lombok, that means the photo is edited.
In this Pink Beach Lombok, besides being able to find pink sand, you can also do snorkeling near the beach area. Snorkeling near the edge of the beach can or if you want a snorkeling spot that is a bit far away you can. Many offer boat rental services to get to snorkeling spots. All prices are pegged per boat (up to 10 people / boat) so it is a bit heavy for tourists who come in small amounts or alone.
That also does not include the cost of snorkeling equipment rental. We will be taken to two snorkeling spots plus a bonus to Pink Beach Lombok 2 (this Pink Beach Lombok that makes on Google Maps there are two Pink Beach Lombok tags). You really have to try snorkeling at Pink Lombok Beach. The fish is diverse and the coral is also colorful. After snorkeling, we can relax on the quiet Pink Beach Lombok 2.
So even though the place is far away and the terrain is difficult all will be very satisfying. One of the best beach locations in Lombok to visit. Indeed, to go to Pink Beach Lombok, Lombok will definitely spend a day. Maybe this is what causes many tourists with limited time to be reluctant to go here. But for those of you who have enough time and of course like the beach don’t let this place be missed when you go to Lombok.
