PINK SAND BEACH in the Philippines? WOW!

Whenever somebody mentions a pink sand beach, people will often think of the Pink Sand Beaches of the Out Islands of the Bahamas or the Horseshoe Bay in Bermuda. Other than that is located in Santorini, Greece and the Barbuda Island of the Carribean. But will you believe that the Philippines also has its own pink sand beach?

Fortunate enough, the Philippines is blessed to have one of the uniquely gorgeous beaches in the world that offers a different hue of sand aside of its hundreds and thousands of tropical beaches with pristine and powder-liked sand bar and clear aquamarine water. Henceforth, it is only waiting to be explored by tourists: The Great Santa Cruz Island.

The Great Santa Cruz Island is one of the rare beaches in the Philippines with unspoiled beauty of a pink sand surrounded by crystal clear turquoise water located in the Hispanic City or The Little Spain of Asia most specifically in Zamboanga Golf Course and Beach Park, Upper Calarian, Zamboanga City. Also, it is one of the protected areas in Region 9 under the Proclamation No. 271 for Marine Life preservation, conservation and protection. A truly hidden paradise where you can enjoy the serenity of the area!

The hue of the sand is more likely the same as the cherry blossom type of color which is different from that of the Pink Sands Beach of Harbour Island, part of the Out Islands of the Bahamas that is more on the soft-rosy-hue-type-of-sand.
Accordingly, the pink sand beach of the Great Santa Cruz Island is "a coloration effect of pulverized rare Red Organ-pipe Coral (Tubipora Musica) from eons of surf erosion mixed in with the white sand" -

TOUCH DOWN:

The only way to go to the Island from the City Proper is to coordinate with the Department of Tourism Office of Zamboanga located inside the Lantaka Hotel by the Sea of the Valderrosa Street. Roundtrip cost is roughly about P800.00-P1, 000.00 for the exclusive rental of the motorized boat with Police escorts.

Sooner, this pink sand beach will surely be one of the next post-card perfect.
