Picture yourself on an exotic beach surrounded by enchanting natural splendors with nothing but vast stretches of white sands as soft as flour underneath you. No, this is not some imaginary beach on a fantasy land; this is what awaits at Ngurbloat Beach at the Ngilngof Village, Southeast Maluku Regency, on Kei Island, in the province of Maluku. Ngurbloat Beach is also known by locals as the Long Sands Beach, since it goes on and on for 5 km from Ngurbloat Beach in Ngingof Village all the way to Ngursamadan Beach in Ohilir Village, Kei Kecil District.
This swathe of white sand is also what makes this beach so exceptional. The sands are so smooth and soft that the National Geographic dubbed it as: the softest beach sands in Asia. Rows of coconut trees decorate the shores over the indulging sands overlooking the vast blue sea, creating a truly magnificent sight. One will truly find oneself embraced by the beauty of every inch of beach. The soft sand also make this a perfect place to play beach volley, football, build sandcastles, or simply lay back and soak in. Its beauty under the tropical sun.
You can also observe from afar how local fishermen cast their nets. As day slowly turns into night, and the sun sets on the far horizon, nature presents some of its best artworks at Ngurbloat Beach. The turning colors of the sky from deep blue into golden yellow with shades of orange is a truly magnificent sight. If you are armed with camera, this is truly the one shot you should definitely not miss.
