Unlike what its name states, Sombori Island is actually a cluster of exquisite coral islands, some uninhabited and some occupied by a small fishing village.

Located about 5 hours away via speedboat from mainland Kendari, the capital city of Sulawesi, this tranquil paradise is perfect for a day trip, and isn’t just a place for you to relax by the beach. With their myriad of lagoons and clear blue bays, you can go snorkelling, diving, canoeing, and cave exploring too!

Its beauty has also been compared to the famous Raja Ampat Island before too, and it’s evident from all the stunning photos posted on Instagram.

Do keep in mind that the best time to visit Sombori Island is between September to May, when the waves are calmer and safer to be in!
