Activities and points of interest in Sumba

Apart from beach-hopping, one of the most fascinating things you can explore around our Sumba villas is the traditional villages. The area is home to many tribal homes made with pointed roofs using dried grass. These Sumbanese houses can be often seen on hills and mountains—believed to bring dwellers closer to spirits and their ancestors—circled around tombs and altars.
Alternatively, surfers will be delighted to know that Sumba’s waters create incredible surf breaks. So if you fancy the sport, make sure to give the waves a ride.

Sumba’s restaurants, cafes & bars

For our Muslim guests, we recommend Mr. Cafe for their awesome Halal-food menu. For a taste of local food with a nice view and airy ambience, check out the PC Corner Cafe. Another team favourite for its traditional Sumbanese-designed facade and a wide variety of cuisine options is Warung Gula Garam.
