Blue Stone Beach

This Blue Stone Beach in Ende is composed almost entirely of unusual turquoise, blue, and reddish stones. Locally known as Penggajawa Beach, you’ll see the Blue Stone Beach at the scenic 25-kilometre drive northwest from Ende on the road to Bajawa that takes about 30 or 40 minutes.

From the distance this spot looks like a giant blue mosaic stretching to the horizon. A good source of income to the local villagers, they would gather these colorful pebbles to be sold to ready buyers. It is said that these stones were originated from seafloor swept by waves and stranded on the shores of this beach. Local people around are mostly work as rock miners to sale. They will sort the stones by shape, color and size. Later, stones they gathered would be sold to collectors who come from the city.

This beach also doesn’t yet have tourist facilities and food vendors. But the view presented by this beach could pay for the absence of the tourist facility. Moreover, coastal hills around add the cool scenery around the coast. Swimming here is fine, although it’s likely best if you keep some clothes on to avoid offending local sensibilities.
