The name ”Weekuri” comes from Sumba language which mean ”water splash”. Just how the lagoon is created. The constant strong crashing sea from the wide open Indian ocean just on the other side of the craggy wall, went through, flood it and formed the amazing salt water lagoon. Hence, the lagoon is also known as ”The Salt Lake”.

This tidal lagoon is pretty with every hue of blue, sandy ground, crystal clear and cool refreshing water makes it perfect for swimming. The reality of this lagoon far outshine any photos.

Enjoy the view of the entire lagoon on one side and the strong waves crashing on the other.
