Great Sta. Cruz Island is where most travelers flock together. It is considered as the number 1 tourist spot in Zamboanga City in Mindanao. It became more popular due to the presence of pink sand beach. Recently, it was included in the list of 21 best beaches in the world by National Geographic.

The real reason why the sand is pink is that the color of the corals are pink. Since many years of clashing waves passed by, fine fragments of corals mixed with the sand on the beach and made it pink over the past years.

This beach is really very amazing. If you want to go and have some swimming here, just bring your own swimming and snorkeling gears.

You can also enjoy eating seafood from the locals in Great Sta. Cruz Island.

If you want to visit this beach, coordinate first with the Tourism Office in Zamboanga in order to provide you maximum security. Your stay in the beach is of limited time of the day so make sure enjoy every moment with your families and friends.
