Just offshore from Sumbawa's towering Tambora volcano is Satonda, a tiny island with a mysterious crater lake and beautiful coral reefs teeming with underwater life.
It is only a short walk from the beach to the crater lake where the trees are adorned with hundreds of stones on a rope. Locals come here to make a wish while attaching a stone on a branch of a tree. When the rope breaks your wish comes true...
Before leaving Satonda in the late afternoon, you'll have time to explore the beautiful coral gardens or just laze in the sun.
