Description

Komodo Pink Beach



What we will see
  • Komodo National Park
  • Village of Kampung Komodo: meeting the inhabitants
  • Pink Beach


What we will do
  • We will leave the ship and a tender boat will take us to Loh Lian Bay quay within Komodo National Park, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • There we will board a wooden boat and embark on a 30-minute ride to Kampung Komodo, a small fishing village that is the only fixed settlement on the island.
  • When we arrive, we will be welcomed by the village's inhabitants, who will be happy to tell us about their habits and customs. We will visit the school and talk to the children, discovering a simple but genuine place with houses on stilts, dirt roads and colourful clothes hanging out to dry.
  • We will wave goodbye to the village and continue our excursion by boat to the fabulous Pink Beach, a cove boasting glistening sand that turns an incredible shade of pink due to the presence of coral, and it is particularly bright where it meets the backwash of the blue sea.
  • In this awe-inspiring place we can enjoy a relaxing break, sprawling out over the soft, pink sand, admiring the views or snorkelling in the clean, transparent waters in search of some of the area's incredible coral formations.
  • At the end of our time on the beach, we will return to the ship well aware of the fact that we have witnessed a truly unique place.

What you need to know
  • The excursion is part of a social programme to support the inhabitants of Kampung Komodo and the local school.
  • Komodo dragon sightings are not expected.
  • The temperature on the island is very high and there are few shaded areas, therefore we recommend that you dress accordingly and bring a bottle of water.
  • Snorkelling equipment not provided on-site.
