Sumba island with its unique culture, untouched nature and endless white beaches is a real gem among the Indonesian islands.
Sumba island remained for centuries out of the interest of local rulers and colonizers.
Thanks to that it has developed a very unique religious tradition and culture that still defies influences of modern civilization.
Everyday life and work on Sumba is still governed by the principles of animist beliefs Marapu, whether it concerns rice planting or ancient martial rituals PASOLA.
Tambolaka airport in the west and Waingapu airport in the east of Sumba Island can be accessed by a 1-hour flight from Denpasar airport located on Bali Island – the most popular tourist destination in Indonesia. Three airline companies service the area daily – Garuda Indonesia, Wings Air, and Nam Air, bringing as many as 1200 people to the island every day.
