Beautiful Sunset at Walakiri Beach, Sumba Island


“Sunsets are proof that endings can often be beautiful too.” – Beau Taplin

Pantai-pantai di Sumba Timur terkenal cantik dan alami, terutama saat senja. Sebagian di antaranya menghadap ke Laut Sawu yang memisahkan Sumba dan Flores, lokasi yang sempurna bagi para penikmat senja untuk menyambut sunset.

Dua pantai cantik yang terletak tak jauh dari Waingapu adalah Pantai Puru Kambera dan Pantai Walakiri. Keduanya berada di luar kota, sekitar 30 menit perjalanan, tapi berlawanan arah, melewati padang savana khas alam Sumba dan jalanan lurus yang sudah teraspal halus.

East Sumba has many unspoiled and pretty beaches. These beaches frequented by tourists during the afternoon to enjoy the sunset. Some beach overlooking the Sawu Sea which separates the island of Sumba and Flores.

Two beautiful beaches in East Sumba is located not far from Waingapu is Puru Kambera and Walakiri Beach. Both are located about 30 kilometers from the city center Waingapu, but in opposite directions. The highway to the beach is already paved and very good condition.

Puru Kambera terkenal dengan pantai yang landai dan memanjang, Walakiri terkenal dengan “pohon berdoa”, deretan pohon-pohon bakau setinggi 1 sampai 1,5 yang tumbuh di sekitar pantai.

Saat air surut terlihat beberapa pasir timbul hingga beberapa puluh meter dari garis pantai di Walakiri. Kita bisa berjalan sampai 100 meter ke lautan tanpa tenggelam. Tapi hati-hati dengan bulu babi dan bintang laut yang banyak muncul di sore hari.

Walakiri beach is famous for the presence of “prayer tree”, which is a row of mangrove trees as high as 1 to 1.5 meters that grows around the coast. These trees have a sight of its own and looked so beautiful silhouette before sunset.

At low tide, seen some sand arise up to several meters from the shoreline. We could walk up to 100 meters into the sea without drowning. But be careful with the urchins and starfish. Come to Walakiri at the dusk, to enjoy the beauty of the sunset through the beautiful mangrove trees on the beach.
