Kupang is the site to some of nature’s most extraordinary natural beauty. A great example is Goa Kristal or Crystal Cave. This natural beauty is located approximately 30 minutes from the center of Kupang by car in the Bolok area. It was first discovered during the Japanese colonial era and used by the Japanese soldiers as storage for weapons.

Located within the cave itself is a pond which. Walk for about 20 metres from the mouth of the cave and you’ll find it. The path is quite rocky so be careful. If you’re planning for an excursion to Goa Kristal, it is advised to engage the services of a local tour guide so that you won’t get lost or get hurt while exploring.

The pond holds cool, clear and salty water. You could most probably swim in it but check with your guide first. Goa Kristal is also known as Goa Cermin or Mirror Cave as the walls of the cave holds millions of crystals which reflects light everywhere when the sun is high.
