Nusa Tenggara | Destinations on JustGoIndonesia

The islands of Nusa Tenggara or the Lesser Sunda Islands are clusters of islands east of Java Island, from Bali Island in the west, to Timor Island on the east. The Southwest Islands and the Tanimbar Islands which are part of the Maluku Province region are geologically also included in the Nusa Tenggara islands.

Administratively, the Nusa Tenggara Islands belong to the territory of the Indonesian state, except the eastern part of Timor Island including the territory of the state of East Timor.

At the beginning of Indonesian independence, this archipelago was a small Sundanese province with a capital city of Singaraja, now comprised of 3 provinces (consecutively from the west): Bali, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara.

The existence of Sumba Island itself is located in the Lesser Sunda Islands (Lesser Sunda Island). The islands of the small northern sunda islands found the existence of volcanic eruptions that indicate these islands are volcanic archipelagic islands, among them the island of Bali, Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores and Wetar. While part of the small southern sunda islands, such as the island of Sumba and the island of Timor, there is no discovery of the active volcano.
