Like on other beaches in West Sumba, the waves in Marosi are quite big. From May to September, many surfers visit. Not only those who come from within, tourists from abroad have started to glance at this place. Interestingly at low tide, you can see unique rock formations that are usually covered below sea level.
The clean white sand and blue sea water are also the main attraction. When exposed to sunlight, the sand will briefly turn pink. The grains are also larger, like peppercorns along the shoreline. Another uniqueness is the presence of several spots that have sand that is not dense. Visitors can feel the sensation of being sucked in.
This beach also has a small hill in the middle of the sea. The waves circled from the right and left of the hill. From a distance it will look foggy because of the splash of sea water. Mangroves also add to its beauty. Moreover, add with several species of birds habitat there. When the tide is low, many people from the surrounding villages descend to the sea to catch crabs and squid. Interested to try there? This is a must-visit area when in West Sumba.
