Kolbano FAQs

Will I have time?

Following the main road up through Timor you will come to a right turn intersection at Batu Putih directly after the Noelmina Bridge... If you don't turn right then a longer route will take 5 hours but If you turn right then the trip is just 3.5 hours... Total time 8-10 hours...

Located along the south coast of South Central Timor Regency... Most taxi drivers know exactly where it is and is locally known as Pantai Kolbano... You can park just off the road right along the beach just about anywhere...

Anything to remember?

Swimming should always be done carefully due to the waves... All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times... Being an open area, one concern would definitely be sun protection so make sure you put on ample amounts of suncream before you head off...

How do I get there?

It may be possible to catch a village bound bemo or bus towards the general direction and maybe even straight to the beach... Your best chance to get there is by local taxi by asking your hotel reception...

How much will it cost?

The rental car or taxi will be the most expensive of the transport options available to you and may be as much as IDR550k - IDR850k for the round trip including waiting while you enjoy the beach... There maybe a small IDR10k - IDR20k/car parking fee depending on where you park...

What can I do there?

If you have seen the pictures then you know that some activities could include, beach walking, swimming, sun bathing, taking beautiful photos, coloured rock collecting or simply relaxing and enjoying the atmosphere...

Best season and best time of day

Kolbano Beach can be visited all year and is never closed to the public...

Expect more chance of rain or cloudy weather during the monsoon season which unofficially is from mid-December until mid-March even a cloudy day down at Kolbano Beach is a good day...

Because of the heat of the mid-day sun you should be careful between the hours of 9am - 3pm where the chance of severe sunburn is greatest...

Late afternoon pre-sunset warm light is really amazing for catching that perfect photograph... Please note that Kolbano Beach faces south-east therefore the sun will actually set over the hills behind the beach...

If you're wanting to go when there is almost no-one there you should avoid Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays as it can be a little bit more crowded on those days...
