Located on the eastern part of Lombok island, Tangsi beach is one of the three beaches in Asia and 10 known beaches in the world with pink sand. Two beaches are known to be in Greece, one in Italy, one in Bermuda, one in the Bahamas, two in the Caribbean, one in the Philippines and two in Indonesia (the other one is on the island of Flores).
The reason the sand is pink is because the incoming sea water often bring millions of dead red coral fragments from the seabed. When the fragments get to the beach, they blend with the sand and gives the beach a pinkish tone. What a phenomenal sight.
Take a hike up Padar Island, Once you are at the top of hill, be prepared to get your mind blown away as you will witness it’s three colored beaches. You’ll be able to see a pink sand beach, a black sand beach, and a white sand beach, separated only by land ridges and the deep blue sea.
