Pantai Merah (Pink Beach)

Hopefully at the end of July, I'll be able to (finally) scratch off Borobudur from my Must-Do list. But this won't make the list shorter because I've just found out about "Pantai Merah" which means 'Red beach' but somehow in English it's called Pink Beach instead.

I'm actually not too keen on beaches, but the picture of this beach has really caught my eye. This beach is part of Komodo National Park, home to the Komodo dragon, the world's largest lizard and deemed as a vulnerable species (likely to become endangered).

Stunning as the beach is though, it is on the bottom of my list since going there is a bit of a hassle. You need to go from Bali to Labuan Bajo or Bima (both are not the typical tourist cities). And from there, take a boat to the park. Being the city girl that I am, I can imagine myself getting sea sick :)

But who knows, maybe someday there will be direct flights from Jakarta??

The beach and in particular the ultra clear water look incredible. I hope I can go there one day.
