Tangsi beach

Pink Beach is one of the few "pink" beaches Tangsi, which is located in the South-Eastern part of the Indonesian island of Lombok. Thanks to the remoteness and uncomfortable entrance, this part of the shore is untouched by mass tourism. For now it is a weekend getaway recreation place with unique beauty and crystal clear calm waters.

Beach description

On a clear day sand is almost white. During sunsets it's pinkish. On closer inspection, people can see that the grains of sand are mixed with the smallest fragments of dead red corals, which gives the beach such an unusual appearance.

Pink Beach is one of a few places where tourists can enjoy swimming in calm waters. Surfing is not developed here, so visitors just swim or dive. The bottom is very gentle, so this place is one of the safest, and parents can be sure in their children's security. There are no lifeguards, but also no noisy parties. Usual visitors of this beach are couples, families with children, photography and relaxation lovers.

Cliff encloses Eastern part of the beach, and anyone can climb it without an effort and special equipment. There is a beautiful view of pink shore and ocean.
