Sumbawa is one of the 13,000 plus islands in the Indonesian archipelago. It’s a large island to the east of Bali and Lombok. Sumbawa, along with Lombok, is part of West Nusa Tenggara. There are hundreds of small islands in this area in addition to the two major islands.
Sumbawa is known to some tourists for its great waves and sandy white beaches. Due to the somewhat trying process of getting there and the scarcity of cheap tourist facilities, the island is not visited much by non-surfing tourists which is unfortunate as parts of the island are quite beautiful.
Sumbawa is a rugged island with an indented coastline that feature a number of peninsulas, spectacular bays and numerous off-shore islands.
There are two main languages. In the west people speak Bahasa Sumbawa (Samawa) and in the east people speak Bahasa Bima (Mbojo)
