Lasiana Beach, Near Kupang
As the capital of Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT), the province in which Flores is located, Kupang is a thriving city, well-connected to the rest of the country in a bustling network of domestic and international routes. It is also the administrative centre for the government, businesses, trade and education.
If you ever find yourself in Kupang, perhaps during a transit to one of the other exotic islands of Nusa Tenggara Timur, be sure to visit one of the more popular beaches known to international tourists since the 1970s – Lasiana Beach is located only 12km away from Kupang and since the 1980s, it has attracted even more international tourists thanks to a number of new facilities.
Here you’ll find beautiful, dramatic landscapes of coral white sands and clear sea. Unlike many other popular beaches around the world, Lasiana Beach still retains its natural charm and beauty as it isn’t too crowded. Coconut trees line the coastline and on Sundays, the locals head to Lasiana to spend time relaxing with family and friends.
Lasiana is also a good spot from which to dive from. There is a Japan Warship from 1942 that sank nearby that is a great spot for diving. The underwater world here is also amazing.
