As published by Travel Guide Bali, Sumba is a unique opportunity. With Sumba’s natural vocation for tourism, you need to visit the island to understand the beauty of the majestic coast line, white sandy beaches, green hill sides facing the ocean, rivers and forests, one hour plane from Denpasar, Bali. I have been traveling throughout Sumba for the last 6 years and I still keep finding hidden corners of paradise. Sumba has become the natural extension of Bali, since many Balinese are fed up with pollution, traffic and construction sites.
In Sumba, water is more precious than gold and the gold can sit there in the belly of our lands. Only 3 years ago you couldn’t eat an ice cream in Sumba neither drink a cold beer. Today you can also have a decent pizza couple hundred meters away from the airport. No more frustration for not being able to have western style food; If you mix this with the possibility to go to an almost deserted beach and ask the local people to catch a fish for you, they will be more then happy and grill it for you with some ubi (sweet potatoes) and drink coconut water out of the tree. Who wouldn’t want to be able to do this, it is a truly amazing experience. Traveling around Sumba is not an easy task, especially if you wanted to stay overnight in remote areas. Even so, if you have your own gear you can stay overnight almost anywhere by following simple rules. Read more info here.
We need places like Sumba: untouched natural paradise where we can build a future for us and our kids following the rules of nature and respect for traditional life there. Sumba is there for everybody to bring their own life experience and knowledge. It is a great challenge to be part of this process of growth. Come to Sumba and see with your own eyes what is here.
