TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Indonesia is an archipelago that has a row of the most beautiful beaches to visit. There are various beaches starting from Sabang to Merauke, each with its own charm and uniqueness. So, what are the best beaches in Indonesia?

The Most Beautiful Beaches in Indonesia

Quoting the Trips to Discover page, here is a list of the 10 most beautiful beaches in Indonesia:

1. Pink Beach, East Nusa Tenggara

Pink Beach is located in the Komodo National Park area, East Nusa Tenggara. As the name suggests, the sand on this beach is not brown, white or black, but pink. These color pigments are produced by the decomposition of foraminifera organisms and are an attraction in themselves.

2. Karimunjawa, Central Java

The Karimunjawa Islands are included in the administrative area of Jepara Regency. One of the ten most beautiful beaches in Indonesia can be reached by ferry for 4-5 hours. Not only enjoying the natural scenery, tourists who visit will be welcomed by the ethnic diversity of the population, such as from Javanese, Madurese to Bugis.

3. Banyak Island, Aceh

This time, the most beautiful beaches are at the western tip of Indonesia, precisely on Banyak Island, Aceh Singkil District. Its difficult to reach location makes this island the right choice to calm down. Visitors who want to stop by Banyak Island must travel 14 hours from Banda Aceh City. Even so, this island, which is nicknamed paradise island by the local Department of Transportation (Dishub), presents extraordinary beauty.

4. Raja Ampat, West Papua

UNESCO Global Geopark named Raja Ampat as the most beautiful island in the world. Rows of karst (coral) hills amidst the blue sea water make anyone interested in visiting. There are around 1,500 small islands in West Papua waters. Not only can you enjoy the beauty from above land, the underwater world is also a habitat for 1,000 species of tropical fish and coral reefs.

5. Balangan Beach, Bali

This beach, which is on the south side of Bali Island, is still relatively quiet, unlike Kuta Beach. The roar of the wind and the roar of the waves without human voices is the best option to restore the mood. Balangan Beach is open every day morning to evening with ticket prices ranging from Rp5,000 – Rp10,000 only.

6. Derawan Islands, East Kalimantan

If you want to witness rare animals directly, namely hawksbill and green turtles, then the Derawan Islands are very suitable to visit. This archipelago, which consists of several islands, is known to be the nesting location for these ocean-going shelled animals. On Kakaban Island, tourists can swim with stingless jellyfish in a lake. It is not surprising that the Derawan Islands are included in the ten most beautiful beaches in Indonesia.

7. Gili Islands, West Nusa Tenggara

West Nusa Tenggara Province is known for a number of exotic islands called Gili. The Gili Islands include Gili Trawangan, Gili Air, Gili Pasir, Gili Meno, Gili Nanggu and Gili Kedis. The neighboring islands in the northwestern part of Lombok are often a favorite tourist destination, especially for snorkeling and diving.

8. Kanawa Island, East Nusa Tenggara

The next most beautiful beach in Indonesia is Kanawa Island in East Nusa Tenggara. Still part of the Komodo National Park in Labuan Bajo, the underwater Kanawa Island displays various species of fish and coral. The gradient of crystal clear sea water is also suitable as a location for fun swimming on the beach.

9. Canggu Beach, Bali

Unlike most beaches in Bali, Canggu Beach offers unique views. Near the beach, there is a stretch of rice fields that can attract tourists. Even though it is located between Seminyak and Tanah Lot, Canggu Beach is no less interesting. In fact, this beach is often chosen by beginner and professional surfers to practice against the waves.

10. Kelingking Beach, Bali

The last most beautiful beach in Indonesia is Kelingking Beach. Kelingking Beach is one of the most photogenic places. The contrasting view between the white cliffs and the turquoise waters is enough to amaze domestic and foreign tourists who come. This horseshoe-shaped beach also gives visitors the opportunity to dive with protected Manta Rays.
