Why is Lasiana so special?

Lasiana Beach is a long stretch of light-brown sandy coastline infused with hundreds of Lontar Palms... Well away from the hustle and bustle of Kupang City but just 30 mins drive from the center...

This beach is very popular with the locals having beautiful sunsets and dozens of small pop-up shops selling cold drinks, charcoal BBQ corn and fresh young coconuts...

Lasiana FAQs

Will I have time?

A 30 minute car ride from most hotels in Kupang will get you there... How long you spend there is completely up to you but if you head there in the afternoon, try to stay for the beautiful sunsets as the beach is facing north-west almost guaranteeing some amazing photos...

Located in a north eastern direction 12km from Kupang following the main road Jalan Timor Raya heading up the center of Timor Island... Left turn at around the 12lm marker... Easy walk from the main road... Most taxi drivers and locals know it as Pantai Lasiana...

Anything to remember?

Lasiana is full of tall Lontar Palms so there is lots of shade along the whole beach but please follow the obvious sun protection recommendations... Please note that crocodiles have been spotted in the area over the years so check with a local before even attempting to swim...

How do I get there?

You can easily catch any Oesapa bound bemo heading out of Kupang along Jalan Timor Raya... Your could also get there by either local taxi (ask your hotel reception) or by yourself with rental motorbikes... It's easy to find and you can't get lost - just ask a local...

How much will it cost?

The cheapest transport option is to just jump on a bemo heading out of town towards Oesapa... Grab Bike at IDR30-35k..., Grab Car at IDR45-50k.... The rental taxi will be the most expensive of the transport options at IDR150k - IDR200k for the round trip but it is negotiable...

What can I do there?

Beach strolling, snacking on BBQ corn and fresh young coconut, sun bathing, beach soccer or volleyball (BYO balls) or simply relaxing on a towel and enjoying the atmosphere... The Lontar Palms are not rare but make for some cool photos especially in the late afternoon glow...

Best season and best time of day

Lasiana 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 Lasiana Beach is a good day...

With lots of Lontar Palms there is heaps of shade but 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...

The entrance gate opens early in the morning until after dark so no restrictions there...

Sunsets can be quite beautiful viewed from Lasiana Beach so if you're there in the afternoon you may wish to wait until sunset and maybe catch that perfect beach/sunset photograph...

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 quite busy on those days...
