The beach gets its striking color from microscopic animals called Foraminifera, which produce a red pigment on the coral reefs, then it mix with the white sands to produces a soft pink color that is visible along the shoreline. The corals of the Pink Beach’s underwater gardens are in excellent condition, with hundreds of species of both soft and hard corals, and thousands of species of fish.

Nestled between Sumbawa and Flores, the islands of Komodo and Rinca are the main components of Unesco-recognised Komodo National Park, The main difference compare to the Komodo Island, it is more natural here on Rinca. In terms of landscape, Rinca Island is quite similar to Komodo Island. It features beautiful beaches and some hills. Rinca occupies only 123 square miles, miserably hot and usually dry. Rinca is the perfect home for exotic and dangerous wildlife, such as Sunda deer, wild buffalo, wild boar, the macaque monkey, wild horses and snakes. Dense forest gives way to grassy fields and a few scattered watering holes where the Komodo dragons hunt for prey. The population is denser and there is less cover for the dragons to shelter under. It’s said that the dragons are bigger on Komodo, but sightings the komodo dragons in natural environment on Rinca are pretty much guaranteed.
In Rinca, you may find a Komodo Statue. The height is about 3 meters and it is located near to the dock gate. Once you enter the main gate, you can see some wild Komodos nearby.

In a good weather and sea condition, we could see the Mantas from distance. We won’t stop here. We only pass through the area with slow speed, giving you an opportunity to see the beautiful big Manta. You can spot them all year round but the best time to see them in ballet is during the rainy season when you can sometimes literally speak of schooling Manta rays
Day 4 GILI LABA
Day 5 DIWU MBAI WATERFALL - MOYO ISLAND
at 08.00 arrive in Moyo Island. After breakfast, get ashore to explore the moyo island and seek for the hidden waterfall.
The island is located on just outside the north coast of Sumbawa Island. It is the home to magnificent waterfalls, lush greenery and endless savannah. The main object on this island is the waterfall. We will visit Diwu Mbai Waterfall which is located in the midst of a small forest and on a hill. That means you should undergo a short trekking in order to reach the location. In terms of size, the waterfall is considered small. Also, the water discharge is not quite strong. Below the waterfall, a comfy and refreshing natural pond resides. The depth is suitable for both children and adults, so it is considered safe for both taking a bath and swimming. The best thing is this waterfall giving you a unique experience. You may climb the waterfall and jump off to the pond. You may even hang on the tree roots or vines first before plunging to the pond as a TARZAN.
Then we leave Moyo, have lunch on board while sailing westward to Keramat Island.
