Ratenggaro is probably the most scenic village in Sumba. It consists of a number of houses built in traditional Sumbanese style, with peaked and thatched roofs, surrounding a central square with megalithic tombs. The village is overlooking a bay over the Sungai Rateboya river with a nice sandy beach. Since a fire has been reported in 2012, it's likely that the current houses were rebuilt after that with traditional materials. Ratenggaro lies at the western end of Sumba on the southern coast.
