When the sun set it can be very crowded. Its not taken care well. It can be better. Its better to see Kuta bali than Walakiri

In the morning we arrived at the beach. Amazing palm trees and purity welcomed us. The ocean was pure and beautiful blue. We bathed and sun-bathed all day. In the evening, the sun ended with a beautiful sunset.

A perfect spot for sunset photography. The tiny mangroves on the beach create the flawless silhoutte you could ever imagine. This could be the only nice beach in East Sumba.

The beach is not that far from Waingapu, probably about 30-45 minutes drive. A very long long beach, with clean blue water. In the middle of the day, there will be small place that will look like a small sand island. But in the afternoon,...More
