Sumba Island

Sumba Island

We come back from Sumba Island!

We are back from Nusa Tenggara Timur  for the second time in a few months. We visited Rote Island, and after that we decided to stay again in Sumba Island. Why not? Sumba is always a good option!

Sumba is the hidden world of adventure and wilderness in Indonesia. It is still intact and relatively unknown in the tourism sector. It is one of the Lesser Sunda Islands and is in the province of East Nusa Tenggara. Sumba is easy to get from Bali. There are direct flights available to its main airports, Waingapu and Tambolaka.

The best places to visit in Sumba are its  traditional villages. Sumba has many pristine natural wonders an also unique culture. Sumba is covered with traditional villages featuring Sumba’s unique megalithic tombs and stunning high-roofed hut architecture. Amazing Island!

Another highlight of Sumba is its beaches. The beaches of Sumba are incredible! Clear blue waters and clean sands and the scenery that surrounds it is equally stunning. You can expect to be impressed by the magnificent cliffs and rock formations in most of the beaches of the island. Its difficult to make a list of the best beaches in Sumba Island as each beach has its own uniqueness and scene. Sumba is just a paradise...And the island  has also  a surprising surf scene only for experts!

We spent some days at Nihiwatu Resort; staying in this  Top Luxury Resort is an experience itself. Nihiwatu Beach is included on the list of top 20 of the 100 most beautiful beaches in the world released by the CNN. Nihiwatu Resort has everything: quality, good services, good location and views to one of the most beautiful beaches of the world with stunning sunstes.
