Bali may hold the title of dreamiest tropical island getaway in Indonesia, but with more than 17,000 islands scattered across the archipelago, travellers seeking island adventure have plenty of secluded beaches away from the crowd to choose from. Here are the best four beaches in Indonesia.
Pink Beach, Flores
Located in Komodo National Park in Flores, this natural wonder is one of just seven pink beaches found around the world. This gorgeous beach gets its striking colour from microscopic animals called foraminifera, which produce a red pigment on the coral reefs. This is why, for many locals, the beach is also known as Red Beach. When the tiny particles of red coral combine with the white sand it produces the notable pink sand found along the shore. Offering endless views of the turquoise waters, with rolling hills in the background, the Pink Beach is a great choice for anyone to relax and indulge in the stunning beauty.
Ngurtafur Beach, Maluku
With a long stretch of white sand merging into the shimmering sea, a visit to Ngurtafur Beach gives the illusion of walking on water. Situated on the beautiful Kei Islands, the elongated, winding beach has won many hearts. Under the water, colourful fish and coral reefs make this an ideal place for swimming or snorkelling.
Kelingking Beach, Nusa Penida
Situated only 30 minutes from mainland Bali, travellers get to enjoy the sight of a T-Rex head-shaped rock formation. Probably one of the most photographed sites in Indonesia, Kelingking Beach is not only amazing to view from above but also below. Be sure to wear sensible shoes because the route down the cliff to the beach is very steep.
Bingin Beach, Pecatu
Big rolling waves and unrivalled views of the Indian Ocean making this beach a popular surf spot in Bali. Located in the southern part of the island, Bingin Beach is a favourite with surfers and other tropical wanderers. Adorned with soft sand and crystal blue waters, visitors love to work on their tan during the day, while at dusk the majestic sunset view is incomparable.
