Relax on the Philippines' version of the Bahamas' Pink Sand Beach and ride a colorful vinta when you visit the Great Sta. Cruz Island in Zamboanga City. This tour is perfect for beach and island lovers seeking new places to visit in the Philippines. It also comes with a vinta ride, the service of a guide, a seafood picnic lunch, and hotel pick-up and drop-off within the city proper.

The tour begins in the morning as your guide picks you up from your accommodations. It's recommended to bring your own sunblock, dry bag, and snorkeling gear as well. From the town proper, you will head to the pier, where you will ride a boat that will take you the Pink Beach. 

When you arrive at the beach, feel free to pose and take photos with the pink-hued shore and swim in the surrounding waters. Following your time there, you will sail to a mangrove forest where you'll have a close encounter with stingless jellyfish. You will also go bird watching to discover what colorful species call the trees their home. Next, you'll ride a vinta, a traditional outrigger boat in Mindanao, to go on a cruise across the island's lagoon. If the tide permits, you can also visit the small sand bar of Sta. Cruz Island and have a quick photo opportunity on this pristine stretch of sand. 

Capping off this tour is a picnic seafood lunch complete with fruits by the shore of Pink Beach. After your meal, you can swim some more at the Pink Sand Beach before you are taken back to the town proper and dropped off at your hotel.

Discover Zamboanga's Pink Beach and its attractions when you book this day tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
