WHAT MAKES THIS TOUR AMAZING?
This tour is designed for any travelers who are willing to explore the untouched paradise in Indonesia which is very accessible from Bali island or any bigger airport in Indonesia. So, we introduce Sumba Island as your untouched paradise destination and we offer six days to explore from the west side and finish on the east side of the island.

Sumba Island is a remote island that has two small airports in the west part (Tambolaka Airport ) and the east part (Waingapu Airport). There are not many big hotels, villas, or any good homestays. Most of them are quite basic and the cost is higher compared to Java Island or Bali Island. Because everything is still from Java Island, for example, some important things such as rice, fuel, car, and many more. Mostly they deliver by land which takes more than 6 days to be on Sumba Island.

Besides that, Sumba Island has beautiful nature; a clear crystal salty lake, an amazing waterfall, a surfing spot, traditional villages, tradition and culture, the best landscapes for photography, and friendly local people.

HOW TO GET HERE:
The best way to reach Sumba Island is by plane from Bali. It’s about a 1h25m flight and there is a 2-3 schedule every day, so make sure you book earlier to get here. Because the tickets are easily sold out. There are not many foreigners who come here because most of them don’t yet know about this island.

We recommend you, to fly from Bali to Tambolaka Airport (South West of Sumba) and fly back to Bali from Waingapu Airport (East of Sumba). We recommend visiting Sumba Island in 6 days, it’s the best length to explore the island.
