Have fun exploring the Pink Sand Beach in Sta. Cruz Island on this half-day tour from Zamboanga City. If you’re looking for a quick vacation to a unique beach that isn’t too far from the city, then this tour is for you. This tour is inclusive of entrance fees, environmental fees, hotel pick-up and drop-off, a vinta ride, and tour guide assistance.

You will be picked up at your hotel in Zamboanga City. You will then get on a boat and travel straight to Sta. Cruz Island. The island, which is off the coast of the city and is tucked away in the Basilan Strait, is home to a small Badjao community and has long been accessible to travelers. It's also known as Zamboanga Pink Beach.

The magnificent sight of the island's pink sand, which was created from the crushed red organ pipe corals, will greet you as soon as you dock there. Admire the beach's distinctiveness and snap lots of pictures as mementos. Following that, you'll have plenty of time to explore the island's fascinating aquatic life while swimming and snorkeling to your heart's delight. 

Following your time spent visiting the island, you will board a small boat for a cruise to the Sta. Cruz Island Mangrove, where you may view and touch stingless jellyfish and discover the island's century-old mangroves. Additionally, you will have ample time and a chance to board and snap a picture inside a vinta boat, a vibrant boat in Mindanao, when you go to Sta. Cruise Lagoon.

You might be able to halt for a brief period of time at a little sandbar near Sta. Cruz for a photo opportunity before enjoying more time at the Pink Beach and then returning to the heart of Zamboanga.
