This dive site is one of only seven pink or red beaches in the world. The color comes from the red coral that is broken off and then ends up being washed ashore, giving the sand its amazing color. The corals themselves get their red color from Foraminifera, microscopic animals that live on the coral reef.

The beach is more often than not visited for snorkeling and it is considered one of the most amazing areas of the Komodo National Park.

At low tide, a rock that is normally hidden by the water pokes out through the water indicating the starting point for this dive. As a walk-in beach dive, the site is relatively easy to dive with fantastic abundance of things to see that does not diminish at night. Night dives are fantastic and as visibility can vary, it is best to do them when the tide is falling.

The dive itself will often involve seeing relatively tame fish that have become used to the many divers and snorkelers. It is likely you will see scorpionfish, crocodile fish, and blue-ribbon eels; regal angle fish and checkerboard wrasse are easily spotted too. There are frequent encounters with unicornfish, fusiliers, shrimp gobbies and jawfish; the latter being well known for stuffing their mouths full of their litter of eggs to protect them.
