Waingapu is the largest town on the island of Sumba, in the province of East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. It is the capital town of the District of Sumba Timur. The older part of town is around the port, the newer part a 15-minute walk centres on the markets. The town is served by ferries from several nearby islands, and rented cars are available for hire. The island is renowned for its quality surf and several surf resorts cater for world-wide visitors. The surrounding bays and reefs provide excellent opportunities for fishing, surfing, snorkelling and diving enthusiasts.

Waingapu is also famous for the local art and handicrafts made of sandalwood, and hand woven textiles that reflect the unique tribal Sumba culture. At Kampung Kallu see demonstrations of traditional ikat weaving. For history buffs, visiting some of the original cemeteries also proves to be most interesting, such as at Istana Pasunga. Three kilometres out of town at Prailiu are impressive megalithic structures. Learn the reasons for their fascinating tall-roofed houses made from sharp leaves. Here you can also find the traditional woven fabric, ikat, which is now very popular even as far away as Europe. Kawangu is 10km out of town, where you can see a traditional (asli) village and grave stones.

As you wander Waingapu, far from Jakarta, you’ll still see ubiquitous motor cycles, crowded buses, motorcycle taxis (ojek), busy markets selling just everything, food carts, wandering goats, and children playing. Horse-racing is popular and taken very seriously at the local racetrack.
