Summer Tropical Island

*About Tomia Island & Wakatobi: Tomia Island is one of four islands that form an administrative area to become Wakatobi Regency. While the word Wakatobi is taken from the first two letters of the names of the four islands, namely, Wangi-Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia, Binongko. So it becomes Wakatobi. Wakatobi by the government has been designated as one of the leading marine tourism destinations in Indonesia through its tagline as an underwater paradise and the heart of the world's coral triangle. This may be supported by the panorama and its underwater potential through the very varied number of coral and fish species. So that it attracts many tourists to come to do diving or snorkeling activities. Meanwhile, Tomia Island is the center of this destination in Wakatobi. What concerns me and my friends here is that Tomia Island should not only be known through its underwater panorama, because it is only beneficial for some parties, especially underwater tourism businesses who are able to have complete facilities, but also the land and coastal areas have the potential to explored by tourists. If everything goes synergistically, I believe the society will benefit equally through tourism activities on Tomia Island. I founded Sikola Kampo in Kahianga Village, where this village has also become a tourist village on Tomia Island. The distance from my house to this village only takes 20 minutes by motorbike. At Sikola Kampo we also developed several special activities for local youth such as painting (murals), bamboo crafts, music, food and beverage processing, and others that we can do through the potential that exists in the village. So you can also share with us about useful experiences that you have and we can develop here.

You can call me Al for simpler. I am in a small town, namely Usuku, Tomia Island, Wakatobi Regency, Southeast Sulawesi. Here I am also active in managing a Non Profit Organization that concentrates on empowering and strengthening the capacity of local communities in villages to obtain decent livelihood rights through sustainable management of natural potential. As long as you are on Tomia Island, you will stay at my house with a private room. A very simple house in the city center, close to shopping for basic needs, traditional restaurant, and has very friendly neighbors. In this house we will cook and eat together and you can also share your experiences with me about the cuisine from your country. I think it will be very fun because here you and I are like a family, so I hope you don't hesitate. If you want to visit the traditional market then you can reach it by walking or by motorbike from my house. Besides that, you can also walk around to see unique house designs, the surrounding environment, and explore directly with the community because we are very open to anyone. My house is also very close to the port where you may arrive or depart from the port. *Especially? If you like outdoor activities, I will invite you to do camping on small islands around Tomia Island. These islands are very exotic and remote, becoming a second home for me to find peace. Here I will invite you to fish with traditional techniques and teach you about traditional tropical cuisine. In addition, on this island you will also be satisfied with swimming, snorkeling, because the area of the waters of these small islands has a beautiful panorama to enjoy. You can sunbathe on the wide beach and read a book, feel the breeze, enjoy the freshness of coconut water, etc. I also often do this activity with tourists who have the same activity background if they wish. *So how to reach Tomia Island? when you are in Indonesia, there are two choices of the nearest airport that will be your flight destination. First, you will take a flight to Betoambari Airport (Baubau). After that you will take a regular ferry Tomia through Murhum Port. This regular ferry departure schedule every Thursday and Sunday at 10 pm. You will get the ticket directly through the counter at the port when you are about to depart. Second, you will take a flight to Matahora Airport (Wangi-Wangi Island). After that, you will take a regular fast boat to Tomia Island through Numana Harbor. Fast boat departure schedule every day at 2 pm. You will get the ticket directly via fast boat. I will be at the port where you will arrive to pick you up.
