We had the opportunity to make a trip to the Pink Beach at a lonely area of the island. This place is unbelievable. The sand is of pink color. Its grain is so fine that it feels you have flour in your hand. If you put it into a bottle, it looks like strawberry yogurt !!!
As the Island is a restricted area, only few people have the opportunity to see and feel this marvel.
