Memory by Marla Ricafrente
According to Nat Geo, the Great Santa Cruz Island is one of the best beaches in the world! Famous for its pink sand beach, the pinkish tinge actually comes from crushed red organ pipe corals mixed with the white sand. A short boat ride from the main island will take you to the stunning sand bars of Little Santa Cruz and to the Mangrove Forest where I got to hold a stingless jellyfish!!! To get to Santa Cruz Island, you'd have to avail a day-tour package organized by the City Tourism Office. Otherwise, you won't be allowed to go to the island by yourself at all for safety reasons. There are also no accommodations available, just cottages and pavilions good for large groups. Reservations are required!
