Pink beach daysKomodo, Indonesia

There are seven beaches across the globe that have pink sand – caused by a cocktail of white and red sand, with Ma Nature acting as mixologist – but Komodo is definitely the only place where you’ll find pink sand and dragons. Giant goat-munching beasts aside, Komodo, in Indonesia, is a tropical wonderland where time is an abstract concept and all you really have to worry about is whether to stay lying on the surreal beach or go for a snorkel in the azure ocean.


A visit to Pink Beach can be made on the three-day Komodo National Park tour with Viator. The tour costs about US$590.

You need to be a competent swimmer – on some days the current can be strong.
