Sumbawa is one of the 13,000 plus islands in the Indonesia archipelago. It is 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, the scarcity of cheap tourist facilities, and the absence of clear local sights (which are either unexplored or too expensive to explore), the island is not visited much by non-surfing tourists — which is unfortunate, as parts of the island are quite beautiful.
