This pink beaches in the Philippines were named as one of the Best Beaches Around the Wolrd.
The Philippines tagline is “It’s More Fun In The Philippines” and it truly was. Tourist and locals can’t get enough of stunning beaches and sceneries the country has to offer. As a matter of fact, Sta. Cruz Island in Zamboanga made the cut, enlisted as one of the 21 Best Beaches in the World
Santa Cruz Island is deemed as the Pink Beach, covered in beautiful pink sand that results from all the crushed red organ pipe coral that washes ashore.
Because of the vast potential of the island to be spotted by the tourists, the local government of Zamboanga regulates its visitors. If you are planning to visit, you need to coordinate with their tourist office to visit, and staying overnight is not allowed.
Aside from Santa Cruz Island, there are other not-so-well-known pink shores in the country and that definitely worth to hunt.
Below are the four pink sand beaches in the Philippines you need to visit now.
1. Pink Beach of Sila Island
Easily one of the Philippines’ prettiest, Sila Island is found along the coast of Northern Samar! Its powdery, sweet-hued shore is the result of pulverized red corals and shelled creatures, called foraminifera, blending with the white sand. These fragments are washed ashore during the southwest monsoon season
2. Subic Beach
Nope, we’re not referring to a mere two-hour drive from Manila. This particular Subic is in Matnog, Sorsogon, and is divided into Subic Laki and Subic Liit (because two beaches are better than one)! The beach’s fine, pink-tinged sand also comes from crushed red corals.
3. Tikling Island
If there’s anything you need to know, Sorsogon is clearly brimming with rose-tinted shores! Yet another beach found in Matnog, Tikling Island is a hidden gem of pink sand you ought to explore. Brb, booking a flight!
4. Pundaguitan Beach
Also called Parola Beach (yes, of the famous Parola Lighthouses!), this long stretch of pink shoreline can be found in Cape San Agustin, Davao Oriental. Pundaguitan’s candy-colored sand comes from red organ-pipe coral sediments that mix with its original white sand.
