Pulau Sumba Things to Do

    On the way from Waingapu to Waikabubak, back in college years in 1995, our excursion group stopped over by a beach. No name but it was one of the best beaches I've seen in Indonesia. It was a white-pepper sized- sandy beach, clean and bluish water. Most importantly no sign of any tourists along the beach..There was only one young coconut stall there and each of us bought one. At that time and place, one big young coconut cost us only Rp 500 (about USD 5-10cents). Hot weather was cooled down by the delicious coconut drink and meat, it was truly a moment I still remember. Unfortunately we stayed only for a while and continued our journey after a while.

    Wonder if I can find that beach again......sighh...
