  • Tarimbang Village

Located in Tabundung District, the village of Tarimbang is known for its striking eponymously named beach, as well as the Pindu Harani Beach. The beaches are also known for their surfing.

Kambaru Beach and Laiwangi Wanggameti National Park are also ideal for exploration, while the age-old Repit Ana Au traditional ritual is worth a check.

  • Praimadita Village

Katundu and Waihungu beaches are two of a myriad of tourist draws for the village of Praimadita in Karera District.

The area has plenty of spots for snorkeling and diving. The beautiful outer islands of Salura, Mengkudu and Kotak are ideal for sighting dolphins, while the hot water springs of Nggongi Hill could provide an exhilarating outing.

He added that the East Sumba Regency is building support facilities for these villages' services, even as the Regency administration is drafting the regulations for the communities.
