Not to far from the Waingapu city.. easy access, relaxing beach to just sitting around while enjoying the View.

People also go here for photo taking at the mangrove next to the beach. Just make sure the timing of the riptide if you want to Take picture here.

Besides that, the local provide a toilet to wash yourself (very rare in Sumba)

Nice beach

Best place for photographers, but very fragile. Come here in low tide to capture sunset. I rented motorbike to get here

​Go for low tide and walk through the mangrove. Great photo spot!
Very nice beach just for hanging out. Several food stalls directly on the beach under the palm trees, serving basic local meals and drinks. Cold beer too! Many locals come here, especially during weekends and it was lots of fun for us to walk around and be the main attraction for them. Beautiful sunset can be seen from the further part of the beach during high tide or through the mangrove during low tide.

If you are a beach lover, the Walakiri beach should be your A-list for exploring the beautiful beaches in the eastern part of Indonesia. The white sand and calm waves would pacify your mind and soul.

An average flat beach where you cannot swim. It has a little mangrove site on the left side, where there are too many local instatourists taking photos and some drones. A good site just to shortly visit. Sunset in December wasn't so appealing as it sets behind the mangrove site. Nice "warungs" along the beach selling fresh coconuts, beer, and instant noodles.

Walakiri beach is one of my favourite beach for watching sunset, because it has the iconic dancing tree that makes your photos more dramatic.

To come here means to take pictures while sunset with the mangrove trees as the back ground. The mangrove trees are very beautiful among you as a silhouette.
