Sea Routes to Sumba Island

From Flores


The most common sea route to Sumba starts from the island of Flores, particularly from the port town of Aimere. Boats from Aimere frequently set sail to Waikelo Port in West Sumba. This journey provides a picturesque voyage across the Flores Sea, offering views of volcanic islands and an opportunity to experience life on the Indonesian seas.


From Sumbawa


Another route to consider starts from Sape Harbor on the eastern tip of Sumbawa Island. From Sape, ferries make their way to Waingapu Port, the largest town in East Sumba. This route traverses the Sumba Strait, a stretch of sea known for its strong currents and deep waters, making for an exhilarating sea voyage.
