The Pink beach on Budelli Island, one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, owes its name to the colour of its sand, rich with tiny fragments of coral, granite and shells. Its spectacular colour is derived from a pink microorganism that inhabits the posidonia meadows and lives inside the shells. When it does, the shells are washed ashore and ground by water and wind. In the 20th century, anchoring boats and the irregular agitation of the sea slowed down posidonia growth and modified the composition of the sand. In 1998, new regulations were introduced to protect the beach, which was then closed to disembarking (to avoid looting as well), bathing and boat anchoring, allowing the beach to recover its original colour. You will find yourself facing clear waters that lap against reddish foreshore and, to your back, the Mediterranean vegetation displays the colours and scents of a paradise on earth, made famous by the genius of Michelangelo Antonioni, who shot part of his movie “Red Desert” here in 1964.
