    Ratenggaro Beach, Natural and Historical Beach in Kodi - Sumba

    One of the beautiful beach in East Nusa Tenggara is Ratenggaro Beach. This beach is a combination of natural tourism and culture because near the beach there is a traditional village site named Kampung Ratenggaro with unique and historic old stone tomb right on the beach. Ratenggaro Beach has big wave with long roll, and it is suit to those who love surfing. Unfortunately, there is no facility for this activity. This is become a big homework for local government. The enchantment of the beach is not only from its beach, but visitors who come to Retanggaro can see ruin of tomb from megalithic era, or about 4,500 years ago.

    Ratenggaro beach is still natural and beautiful. The coastline is signed by white sand and facing to crystal water. The sound of wave’s water can be heard from the next village. Every evening, there are local residents visiting the beach. Most of them are elder people who want to meet their ancestor in Ratenggaro. When you come to this beach, or around Sumba Island, you are suggested to wear closed shoes. This is needed to avoid you from tetanus. One of uniqueness of the beach is that Ratenggaro is located right to estuary of river with blue water.

    Ratenggaro Beach exists at Ratenggaro Village, Kodi Bangedo sub-district, Southwest Sumba, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. From Tambolaka City, it takes 48 km. The infrastructure toward the beach is smooth and it takes around 1.5 hour from Waikabubak City. If you want to take public transportation, there is public bus and mini bus to Bondo Kodi. Then, you can continue your trip by motorcycle. If you want practical way, you can take travel agent to come to Ratenggaro Beach. Along the road toward the beach, you will see hardwood trees for about 2 km long.
