Sumba is a relatively flat and dry island. The south of the island receives more rain than the north and is therefore more green and forested, while the north has to a large extent savannah-like landscapes. Rice is cultivated even in the dry season in southern Sumba. A characteristic feature of Sumba is the presence of sharp coral rocks along the coast.
