Dari Pantai Pero dengan ombak yang menunjukkan kekuatannya, dan karang-karang tajam yang membentuk garis pantai, hingga putihnya pasir Pantai Tarimbang dengan iconic tree bagaikan karya seni yang sempurna diletakkan di tengah pantai dengan latar laut biru menggoda, Sumba trully have some best beaches in Indonesia
From Pero beach Pero with waves that show its strength, and sharp corals coral that form the coastline, to the white sand beach Tarimbang with the iconic tree is just like a perfect work of art placed in the middle of the beach with a background of blue seductive sea, Sumba trully have some best beaches in Indonesia
Been saying this few times but I'm gonna say it again: Weekuri Lake is one of the best. Actually, "danau" yang berbatasan dengan laut ini adalah lagoon, dengan kombinasi air tawar dan air laut yang menghasilkan sensasi thermocline - kadang dingin, dan kadang hangat, serta air yang terlihat seperti air gula (foggy). Weekuri adalah salah satu spot wajib saat mengunjungi Sumba, meski kini danau ini sudah populer, it's still so beautiful as ever!
Been saying this few times but I'm gonna say it again: Weekuri Lake is one of the best. Actually, the "lake" that is bordered with the sea is a lagoon, with a combination of fresh water and sea water which produces a sensation thermocline - sometimes cold and sometimes warm, and the water that looks like sugar water (foggy). Weekuri is one of the must-visit spots while visiting Sumba, although now the lake is already popular, it's still so beautiful as ever!

Freshwater will boost your mood instantly. Dipping in Lapopu Waterfall is a must, we even get past the "water curtains" and enjoy the natural massage of waterfall's water pressure :)

Sumba people are blessed with amazing view everyday. Ratenggaro village is directly opposite with the beach that has beautiful white sand. Traditional homes with distinctive towering roof, and Sumba children who enjoy the beauty of their nature, it's so exotic.
What's so beautiful about land full of grass? Well, you gotta see and feel yourself. Sumba memiliki kontur padang savana yang berlekuk-lekuk, perbukitan yang indah dengan warna rumput yang menguning di saat musim kering sangat picture perfect, and it's even 1000% better during the golden moment, saat sunset!
What's so beautiful about a land full of grass? Well, you gotta see and feel yourself. Sumba has an undulating savanna contour, beautiful hills with grass yellowed color in the dry season which are so picture perfect, and it's even better 1000% during the golden moment, when it's sunset!
There are still more from Sumba, I know when I visit this land again, there will be more wow and more places to explore. Sumba, I'm coming again next year!
