    Visiting The Exotic Waijarang Beach in Lembata Island, East Nusa Tenggara

    The excellence of Waijarang Beach is of course the stretch of sand and coastal views. The sheen of the beach sand is so exciting when blazing to the beach. Waijarang Beach is located in Nagawutung District, Lembata Island, East Nusa Tenggara. The fine white crystals of this beach is also emit light along the shore. Once the sea water leaves a wet trail, the sands reflect a much more glowing light. However, on the other hand, Waijarang Beach also looks beautiful because of the trees that grow thick lined coastline. At least, there are mangrove trees, coastal pine, ketapang, waru, tamarind, until pandanus.

    A number of houses, commonly called lopos with a size of 3 x 4 meters to 15 x 20 meters, are erected on the sidelines of the trees. Shellfish and small crabs do not miss the beach. The animals crawl slowly leave very fine footprints to form writings unreachable to the mind. As far as 20 meters from the beach, it's seen a large crab commonly called as a coconut crab. The crab makes holes in a number of places. The location of one hole with another hole is close together. A pile of crab digs is scattered everywhere.

    While sitting relaxed in lopo, which is a house on stilts, tourists can see the beauty of the beach and sea. Tourists also get the main bonus in the form of view of Mount Boleng on Adonara Island, on the opposite island. The total area that managed by the regency in Waijarang reaches 9,116 square meters. Around this beach, there are also built 15 lopos house units. In addition, there are also built variety of toys facilities, such as 8 units of slides and 5 units of swings. Waijarang Beach is safe. There are no crocodiles, and this beach is so sloped, therefore they can be used by the boys to swim.

    The beauty of Waijarang Beach has succeeded in "wooing" the Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, Mrs. Susi Pudjiastuti, for snorkeling on the beach on June 9, 2016. At that time, Mrs. Susi told the people of Lembata to keep the Lembata Sea to stay blue and to take care of the beach so as not to be contaminated with garbage.

    About 2 kilometers to the east of Waijarang Beach, Lembata District Government also arranges hills as high as 50 meters above sea level. At the top of the hill, there is built courtyard with seating. From the court, tourists can see the coastal scenery, Adonara Island along with towering Mount Boleng. In front of the court, there is built a concrete pillar bearing the words "LOVE", which is painted a golden color. The monument is 4 meters high from the top of the hill. In addition to the monument of "LOVE", there is also built with a capital letter of "LEMBATA" red. Monument of "LOVE" and Lembata Statue can be read from a distance of 700 meters, which was built with a budget of 1.4 billion Rupiah. People call it a "hill of love".

    As for 3 kilometers to the west of Waijarang Beach, there is built Kuma Resort. At least 15 units of 15 x 15 meter houses will be built. The main material of the house comes from wood. There is also an emergency port made of ulin wood as a place of travel, swimming, or snorkeling. The length of the emergency dock is almost 30 meters. Kuma Resort is located in Kuma Bay about 20 kilometers from Lewoleba. Just like Waijarang Beach, the sand and blue sea are so stunning. These destinations support the existence of Waijarang Beach.

    Reaching out to Waijarang Beach is easy. Tourists can travel overland from Lewoleba, the nearest town where there is a harbor with travelling time is less than half an hour as it is less than 10 kilometers away.
