Liman An epic journey
with an epic reward...

Why is Liman so special?

Liman Beach is a long stretch of white sandy beach well away from the hustle and bustle of Kupang City being located on the south-western tip of Semau Island...

As clean, white sand, clear water beaches go - this is one of Indonesia's best... The beach is rather secluded on Semau island with minimal tourists for a quiet and calm experience...

Liman FAQs

Will I have time?

A Semau Island adventure can take up to a full day because of the time and effort it take just to get there... Kupang hotel - Tenau harbor is 30 mins drive... Tenau harbor - Hansisi harbor is 30 mins by boat... Hansisi harbor - Liman is 30 mins by motorbike...

Located on the south-west tip of Semau island... You'll need to take a 30 minute boat ride from Tenau harbor to Hansisi harbor which is located on the the east side on Semau and another 30 minute motorcycle ride across the island...

Anything to remember?

Although there are trees along this white sandy beach, cover up as you not only get the sun directly but also reflected rays off the water and white sand... You will also be sun exposed on the boat trip over and back as there is minimal shade onboard...

How do I get there?

Local bemos go all the way to Tenau harbor leaving from the Kupang Bemo Station in the center of old Kupang town... Or just grab a taxi or Grab there... Then boat over to Semau island and then motorbike (or sometimes open air pickup truck) to take you by request to Liman...

How much will it cost?

As an example... Car hotel - harbor is IDR100k/car... Boat to Semau is IDR25k/person... Semau motorbike one way is IDR75-100k/bike... All prices are negotiable and there is no entrance fee to the beach or parking facilities there either... Just you and nature...

What can I do there?

If you have decided to make the trip then I strongly recommend you make a day of it and take everything you need with you... There are few places to buy anything so pack some lunch too... Have a picnic on the beach and swim and enjoy the amazing scenery...

Best season and best time of day

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

January and February expect the sea conditions to be about 10% rougher than the rest of the year and of course there will be more chance of rain or cloudy weather during the monsoon season which unofficially is from mid-December until mid-March...

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...

I would start the day early and maybe forgo the sunset photos otherwise you will be taking the boat back to Kupang at night... This is by no means dangerous as the sea is often calmer in the early evening than late afternoon...

Sunsets can be quite beautiful viewed from Liman, so if you decide to wait until sunset and catch that perfect BEACH AT SUNSET photograph then you will be satisfied...

It's a great day out and you'll sleep like a baby that night...
