About
The Philippines is difficult to top when it comes to stunning beaches. Tourists and locals alike never run out of reasons to explore what our country has to offer, and National Geographic seems to be on the same boat. In fact, in the magazine's recently published 21 Best Beaches in the World list, Sta. Cruz Island in Zamboanga made the cut. Dubbed aptly as the Pink Beach, Santa Cruz Island is covered in beautiful pink sand that results from all the crushed red organ pipe coral that washes ashore.

    Great Santa Cruz Island
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Great Santa Cruz Island is a small inhabited island in Zamboanga City in the southern region of the Philippines that is famous for its pink coralline sand. The island, located 4 kilometres (2.49 mi) south of downtown at the Santa Cruz Bank in the Basilan Strait, boasts the only pink sand beach in the Philippines. The color of the sand comes from the pulverized red organ pipe coral from eons of surf erosion mixed with the white sand.

Kind of boring. Didn't really need to purchase. Could've just taken a trike to the site, would have been much cheap

Unfortunately, the tour guide acted more like an assistant to the driver. She had minimal information of the island
