Tomia island one of the four islands that form Wakatobi (Wangi-wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia, Binongko). Of all four islands, Tomia is the most pristine since it is a national park. We stayed at people's homes, and breakfast, lunch, and dinner was served in other homes in the village.
We went there to dive, and really the dive sites are of world class quality. But I'll talk more about it later, this post covers pictures of how Tomia looks like in the surface.
How to get to Tomia from Jakarta :
It is quite a long journey to Tomia, but at time of visiting we do have plenty of time so we decided to break the journey to a couple of stages. First we took evening flight with Garuda Indonesia to Makassar. Flights to Wangi-Wangi (Wakatobi's capital) are only available early in the morning so we stayed overnight in Ibis in Sultan Hasanuddin Airport. Refreshed early in the morning, we took Lion Air ATR plane to Wangi-Wangi. Took some dive, stayed again for the night, then the next day we took 4 hour boat ride to Tomia.
