Sumba: A Lush Tropical Haven and Treasure Trove of Waves


Let World Surfaris introduce you to the raw, rugged beauty of Sumba, one of Indonesia’s best-kept secrets. An easy 90-minute flight from Bali, Sumba is a unique surf destination that offers empty waves, dazzling scenery and a chance to switch off and immerse yourself in a beautiful island culture. 

Step back in time and explore the wonders of this lush tropical haven. A surf trip to Sumba offers a treasure trove of epic waves, with fun and inviting left-handers and big deep-water bombies. The tropical backdrop makes surfing Sumba an absolute dream. 

World Surfaris represents a couple of beautiful and unique surf resorts in Sumba with access to the best waves in the area. At these stunning Sumba resorts, guests can switch off from reality and take in everything this island paradise offers, whether they want to spend their time in or out of the water. 

Wander through the traditional Sumbanese villages lined with thatched-roof houses, snorkel the untouched coral reefs, take off on a horse riding adventure, try fishing, or join one of the beautiful cultural tours around the island. When staying on Sumba, you can do as little or as much as you like!
