Komodo Diving at Pink Beach
OYour dive site at Pink Beach is called Pantai Merah by local people. The naming describes the place well: it has red colored sand. This Komodo diving site is part of Komodo Island's shoreline. It is probably the most well-known Komodo dive site as you have to pass this dive site when you want to see the fiery dragons from the park station Generally, the dive site is a good place with clear water. Pink Beach is between 5 and 30m deep with visibility between 8 and 25m. Sometimes it sees occasional current of 0-1 knot, with rather stronger current flows in the area between Punya Island and Komodo Island. The current represents the transition between the temperate water in the south and the tropical water of the north Marine life is rich here with the schooling fish, fusiliers, as the dominant species. When you go deeper, you find pelagic such as snapper, trevallies, and sweetlips. At around 25m, the coral outcrops drops rather slightly. Around the corals, you can find reef fish like cardinal, butterfly, damselfish, grouper, angel, batfish, anthias, wrasse, surgeon, parrot, box, trigger, porcupine, and puffer. Flounder, Moray, Gobies, Frogfish, Eels and Leaf fish are permanent bottom dwellers at this Komodo diving site. Octopus, shrimp and crabs are easily visible. Snakes and turtles are rarely visible here as well as the rays and sharks, but sometimes you can meet white tip shark.
