Sumba - almost a paradise island! It is twice the size of Bali but with only a sixth of the population. Mountains and beaches, and a still vibrant stone age culture. Poor, and just got a modern airport. Even now, it can be very difficult to convince someone from say Bali to go work there even for a few weeks - they are afraid! (it is not the best place to travel alone...). Very little tourist infrastructure, except for the world's best hotel on a beach close to this one, if you can afford 1,000+ USD pp per night... Few tourists fly over from Bali although it is just an hour flight. We had this 2 km stretch of beach for ourselves. Even better, there was absolutely no garbage. Not even the tiniest piece of plastic.* * #beach #beachtime #beachday #beachfront #beachfun #beachdays #landscapeporn #travellover #natureporn #paradiseisland #paradisebeach #beachlife #sunnyday #beachy #travelersnotebook #traveldiary #travelandlife #travelog #travelworld #natureshots #travelstroke #beautifuldestination #paradiseonearth #bluelagoon #blueocean #bluesea #thediscoverer #vacationtime #relaxation #relaxmode
