I brought 3 kids (4,6 and 9 years) for just a visit as tourist, apparently my kids love the lagoon. Instead of only photo taking, we spent 5 hours here to enjoy and swim with the locals.

Amazing torquise color of the water, friendly local kids, breathtaking views

Please note when you go with family, please use local driver + guide to save your time of journey.
The access to every spot is not that easy to reach.

Better access and better managed compared to other locations in Sumba Island, definitely worth the visit. Beautiful view, water colors, heart shaped algae. Apparently they are also working on opening an additional lagoon to the public in the future a few hundred meters from this one.

a magnificent swimming pool at low tide... at high tide you can jump from the pontoon,. but watch out...many many sea urchins...with long needles. If you are lucky you can see some fishes...they rent buoys, and you can buy local fabrics at reasonable prices. do not forget that people are very poor...so be generous. negotiate a bit..but not too much.

We made the mistake of visiting on a weekend and it was pretty crazy. There were lots of people and it was a bit loud and full of young men showing off. Not really worth the drive, on this occasion. But it is a beautiful spot and on a quieter day I would have enjoyed it more.

Note that we left our belongings in care, but left a nice pair of thongs by the water edge when we went swimming. These were stolen in the twenty minutes we were in the water. This is a first for me in around 20 visits to Indonesia, although we also had a T-Shirt taken on the same trip at a different location. There were lots of kids around and we tried to get the thongs back by offering a reward, but no-go.

It is worth a visit if you are in the area.

It's such a beautiful and amazing lagoon with crystal clear and clean water. One of the most visited and a must come in West Sumba. You can enjoy sun bathing in the lagoon or just swimming. In the entrance, many local people who sell local handicrafts and homemade woven fabric. Our main concern is the toilet (it's small & stinky). The roads to reach this place are still under reconstruction, still rocky, bumpy and dusty. But don't worry, once you reach there, your journey will be paid off with the amazing views.

The place is very touristic, the lagoon is not very large, and will change very quickly because of human activity. There are so many other places around to enjoy, and no so busy.

Before arriving at the lake I’ve almost got robbed by a group of kids, and a lot of aggresive beggars. We came into the entrance fee was 20k rupiah each. Walking down on a concrete path packed with Chinese taking selfies, people were high on the betelnut (what they take). Some Very sad men were there with stalls selling their traditional ikat sarong. Finally weve got at the lagoon. Everybody staring at my girlfriend because she didn’t bring extra pants to cover her bikini but only a t-shirt’ (I even heard a story from my guesthouse owner that a girl was been followed back by a local because she wasn’t totally covered when she came for a swim). What I really didn’t expect was to see People theowibg snakes in the lake. The snakes are not aggressive but you really have to watch out for them because they are venoms. Totally experience completely not worth it and not recommended.

A must to swim at this lake. You can reach easily from Mario beach hotel. Need to bring lunch boxes as they only sell young coconuts around the place. The road to go there is not yet comfortable. But once you get there you will be stunned by the nature
