However, pink sand is not the only thing you could enjoy in Pink Beach. Cliffs that surrounded the beach beautifully offers unmatched beauties.
If you go to the top of the cliffs, you can easily see natural sceneries, feel fresh shore breeze and enjoy the enchanting sounds of waves.
Then, you can also swim in Pink Beach because the current is quite calm. You can feel how fresh the water and how peaceful the environment is.
More importantly, you can enjoy the beauty of underwater by going snorkeling. Not many beaches are a perfect snorkeling destination but Pink Beach is one of the best destinations on the world.
To get to Pink Beach, you should start from Mataram. It usually takes 2 hours of journey from Mataram to Pink Beach. Alternatively, you can get to Pink Beach using a fishing boat from Tanjung Luar port.
This port actually connects Pink Beach with surrounding islands including Maringkik Island. It is also the biggest fish auction center in Lombok. It takes 3 hours to get to the beach from the port.
However, because you will be able to see beautiful sceneries during your journey, you will not feel bored. Instead, you will be fully excited once you see how beautiful islands on the sea are.
