West Sumba basically is more popular
than East Sumba.
There are some beautiful beaches
in the edge of Indian Ocean in West Sumba
including Marosi & Nihiwatu Beach.
But for me, the Marosi Beach is special,
Contrast with the Nihiwatu Beach
that is known with the luxury resort where
David Beckham & fam stayed,
the Marosi Beach is a “resort” for buffalos 😉.
It’s a very natural beach
with authentic life of locals.
Besides of that this beach is also popular
as surfing spot but only for certain months.
Excluding surfing season this beach is very peaceful
just like when I visited it in July.
