The expanse of sand and the contemplation of the blue sea waves with various marine biota, are the charms of Indonesian beaches that are very attached to the hearts of tourists, making them unable to move on and wanting to come back again. Even Indonesia continues to develop to open up beach tourism that is constantly being explored.

Although the journey to reach beach destinations in Indonesia can be difficult, once you arrive at the location, you will not regret seeing how beautiful it is to watch the sunset on the edge of Indonesian beaches. 

Of the many beaches in Indonesia, here is a list of the most beautiful beaches in Indonesia that you must visit when the holidays arrive!

The most beautiful beach destinations in Indonesia include:

1. Ora Beach, Maluku

Eastern Indonesia is a part of Indonesia that has many options for beach tourism. Many destinations can be explored in this region, one of which is Ora Beach. The beach is located on Seram Island, North Seram District, Central Maluku Regency.

It has stunning beach beauty supported by clean white sand and clear greenish-blue sea, and you can even see the beauty of the coral reefs from a distance not far from the surface.

With the underwater beauty presented at Ora Beach, it is no wonder that this place is the perfect location for snorkeling and diving, because at a depth of only 2-3 meters, you can already enjoy the colorful coral reefs and fish.

Often referred to as the Maldives version of Indonesia, this beach does provide the same sensation as being in the Maldives because it also provides beautiful cottages built right above the surface of the sea!

2. Pink Beach, East Nusa Tenggara

Who wants to experience the beauty of the combination of blue sea and pink sand? Yup, you can get that experience if you visit Pink Beach, Labuan Bajo, Flores, East Nusa Tenggara.

One of the most stunning beach destinations in Indonesia is located in Komodo National Park and is one of the 7 pink beaches in the world.

The pink color on this beach can be caused by 2 things that are still debated. One theory is that it is caused by a creature called foraminifera that produces pink color on coral reefs.

Another theory explains that the pink color is caused by pink-colored coral reefs that are crushed by waves and debris that are carried to the mainland and mixed with white sand, ultimately resulting in the sand on this beach being pink. Interesting, right?
