Off north-east Padar, Serai Island boasts a beach that flushes a vibrant shade of pink. Serai Island is one of the places in the country where Pink beaches can be found. Interestingly, Indonesia is a country where three of the total seven Pink beaches in the entire world can be discovered. Although not as famous as Pink beach located on neighboring Komodo Island, the beach on Serai Island is an ultimate destination for nature and beach lovers alike. Similar to how other Pink beaches get their unique color, the one on Serai Island results from millions of coral fragments mixed with shells and calcium carbonate left behind by the red microscopic creature, Foraminifera.
A true paradise for beach lovers, the Pink beach found on Serai Island is left untouched and sees little to no human interference. Boats serve as the sole transportation option and anchor a few meters from the shoreline as an effort in pRotecting the delicate yet beautiful coral reefs. Passengers are required to swim to shore. Snorkeling is an exciting activity here. Still, most would opt to just walk around the beach, taking in the natural colors that are bestowed from nature. The pink hues that make up the whole beach may not be seen throughout the day, but when it does, the view is spectacular beyond words. The rest of the island is a marvelous rainbow; yellow sandstone cliffs overlook a beach surrounded by jade and emerald trees. Contrasting beautifully with lapping turquoise waves and azure skies – Serai Island is a perfect castaway backdrop.
