Berwisata ke Pantai Pink Lombok

Sedikit keluar dari topik blog, beberapa hari lalu saya menyempatkan diri untuk berkeliling Lombok bersama rekan-rekan saya. Ada beberapa pantai yang saya kunjungi. Selain Senggigi dan Gili Trawangan, Lombok masih punya banyak pantai yang jauh lebih indah yang pasti sangat menarik bagi Fotografer lanskap. Salah satu nya adalah Pantai Pink. Disebut Pantai Pink karena memang pasir nya berwarna agak pink.

Saya kurang tahu nama asli dari Pantai Pink ini. Pantai Pink terletak di tenggara Pulau Lombok dan masuk ke Kabupaten Lombok Timur. Jarak tempuh dari Mataram sekitar 2 jam menggunakan mobil atau sekitar 1.5 jam dari Bandara Internasional Lombok (BIL). Jalan sudah aspal dan mulus kecuali sekitar 2 km sebelum pantai jalan sudah rusak parah. Tetapi akan terbayar begitu melihat keindahan Pantai Pink, semua penat dan capek rasa nya langsung hilang. Kita bisa melihat gagahnya Gunung Rinjani dari Pantai Pink.
