MEIMELALI.COM: An Escape To Untouched Sumba.
Sumba is quite big and a few days is not enough to even scratch the surface of all there is to see. We only stayed on the West side of Sumba during this trip. When in West Sumba the number one spot you must visit is Weekuri Lagoon. The lagoon is around a 2.5-hour ride/drive from Lelewatu resort.
We spent a day and rented a motorbike and had fun riding through remote villages to get there. We got lost a lot (even with offline maps), in hindsight I’d recommend taking a car and a local driver which the resort will arrange for you (they also arranged our bike for us).
We did have a great time on the bike though and the Sumbanese people were so welcoming and helpful. No one really spoke much English, so if you have at least basic Bahasa Indonesia this helps if you’re navigating yourself. In some of the more remote villages, the children were so excited to see us and some were a little scared, they had not seen foreigners before.
