“Rough road to mellow beach”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

It took us 3 hours to get to the Pink Beach from Kuta, Lombok, but it was worth every bump on the road. The road signs are often missing, but just ask around and the locals will point you in the right direction. The sand looks slightly pink, the water is clear, you can also one by a charter boat from Kuta.

“Beautiful spot ”
Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

We happened to stumble across a tour agency opposite the papaya cafe called lombok-adventure tours ( not to be confused with the other company called adventure lombok tour ) . We went with them on a day tour to pink beach and tanjung kaliatan beach. They are the pioneers for 4WD guided tours and it seemed special because it was just myself, my husband Ida the guide and Adi the driver. After about two hours we arrived at the beach known to the locals as Tangsi beach. Due to the Land Rover we actually parked on the cliff.
After a rest Adi joined us in the glass bottom boat to a little island and had a great time snorkelling there. We had been to the gilis and I must say the corals here are magnificent better than gili Trawangan and better visibility. We could have stayed there all day but it was time for lunch back at the picnic shelter on the cliff next to the land Rover.
After that we went to another beach along ekas bay. We had another quick swim and went out another way where the 4WD had to go through water like a flood plain. It was fun ! By this time we knew why Adi said that the 4WD was his second wife hahaha. He was a good driver. We stopped for a tea break where coffee and biscuits were served by Ida. The drive back was scenic with mount rinjani following us for part of the way.
All in all we would recommend lombok-adventure tours. It was personalized ..we stopped to buy some rambutans that were in season. Everything was included ie lunch, ,boat hire, snorkelling gear and coffee biscuits. We paid AUD 50 each for the whole day and the two of them are English speaking and are informative about the places we passed by and locals in pink beach know of them. They also gave the locals the leftovers from lunch which I thought was nice of them.
I would not hesitate to recommend them on a guided tour to pink beach or kuta

“Real Pink Beach!”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

This beach is in Tanjung Ringgit, Jerowaru which is on the southeast tip of Lombok... NOT in Desa Sekotong Barat, which is on the southwest tip.

The road leading to the beach is really quite bad. It's about 10km stretch of pebbled rocky road and before that, 14km of tarmac from the junction of the main road called Jalan Raya Keruak. The nearest 'town' in the area is Keruak.

It's better for you to park your vehicle before the entrance as the earthen road sloping down to the beach is really in a bad condition. The pink hue of the beach is due to the pink bits of what some of the reviewers here call bits of pink corals. Whatever that is, they are mixed with the light colored sands and gave the beach the pink hue.

It's really fascinating to see the pink 'sands' up close and there are more of them in the waters. The surrounding headlands and cliffs of Tanjung Ringgit are also beautiful. As mentioned by many, it's better to come around 3-4pm to see the pink hues. However, if you want to spend more time in the surroundings, better come earlier and trek around the area first as you may want to spend a good measure of time admiring the landscape and the waves beating against the cliffs. Quite a trek, really.

The place is beautiful! Worth the trip here...

“Gili Petelu ..the Jewel of Pink Beach Lombok”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

The beach is actually named Tangsi in Indonesian language. The beach is located in the small village Sekaroh, Jerowaru East Lombok district is part of Tanjung Ringgit, but due to the location and road infrastructure may be inadequate so the beach is not exposed Pink is a media and tourists.

Barracks in the Big Indonesian Dictionary defined the word “dorm” or “barracks”. Somehow the beginning of history, but if looked at from the surrounding circumstances, it may be in this place is the location that was once used as the headquarters of the Japanese army. This was evidenced by the presence of artificial caves and also relic cannon Japanese invaders.

When viewed more closely, it is actually the original color is actually white sand beach, but because it is mixed with crushed pieces of pink coral, natural procession along the reef and flake fragments are then fused and formed pink, especially when exposed to sea water and exposed sun, so that its Pink color was obvious. there is a Gili's among this area..ones called Gili Petelu

“Calm and pretty”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

While everyone seems to go for the Gilis, Pink Beach (or used to called Tangsi Beach) can be an anti-mainstream option. It has a secluded beach with pink sands (not really visible if the sun shines too bright though) and pretty water color, gradient of blue. It's clean and calm. Make sure to visit other beaches that close by such as Tanjung Ringgit. The only fee you're gonna be paying is parking fee, IDR 5.000 for one car.
