Great Sta Cruz Island or "Pink Beach" of Zamboanga is just 15 to 20 minutes boat ride from Paseo del Mar. Boat ride costs php 1000 (to and from) good for 10 persons (If less than 10, same amount will apply). Additional of 100 per head if exceeded 10.

The red coral that disperses in the sand is what contributes to the pink sand of the beach. They also limit the number of people that goes here because of security reasons. For everyone's safety, during bad weather, they will pull you out from the beach.

It was definitely a wonderful experience. You can bring your own food there and of course you have to bring back your trash to preserve the beauty of the beach. Taking home of corals is strictly prohibited as well.

They have restrooms there for you to change clothes. No shower available and the water they use is salt water. So it is only advisable to change clothes there and take a bath at home.

Pink sand beach. 128525 you can only visit the island on a short period of time, from 7am to 4pm due to security reasons since the island is nearby Basilan.
