The Philippines is positively dotted with amazing beautiful beaches. Not-so-well-known fact: we also happen to be brimming with pink shores! Though a little harder to find than the usual white sand spots, they’re definitely worth the hunt.
The Philippines is blessed with beautiful and picturesque destinations. It is also a home to different beaches that are very popular around the world. Some of these have become well-known because they offer a unique color of sand. Since most of these places are still waiting to be explored by quite a few travel enthusiasts across the globe, wouldn’t it be nice if you will be the first one to be the first one to explore them?
Great Santa Cruz Island is among the uncommon beaches in the Philippines. It touts the amazing pink sand beach, which is surrounded by crystal clear waters. At first sight, you would see that the color of the sand bears similarity with the color of a cherry blossom.
The pink sand beach of the place is in fact a coloration effect from a crushed Red Organ-pipe Coral that is fused with the white sand.
Easily one of the Philippines’ prettiest, Sila Island is situated 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.
3. Subic Beach
No, we’re not referring to a mere two-hour drive from Manila. This particular Subic is in Matnog, Sorsogon, and which is divided into Subic Laki and Subic Liit.
The beach’s fine, unique, pink-tinged sand also comes from crushed red corals.
4. Parola Beach
This long stretch of pink shoreline can be found in Cape San Agustin, Davao Oriental. Pundaguitan’s pink candy-colored sand comes from red organ-pipe coral sediments that mix with its original white sand.
Yet another beach situated in Matnog, Sorsogon, Tikling Island also has a hidden gem of pink sand beach that everyone need to explore. It is known as one of Philippines’ most magnificent beaches. Though it is mostly rainy in this part of the country, you’d never miss the scenic look of amazing pink beach and green trees surrounding the island.
Just like the sands in Subic Beach, you’d definietely see that the light pink color of the sand is due to a mixture of white sand and crushed red corals by the shore. Definitely one of the best pink beaches in the Philippines.
