A new English language website for tourists planning a trip to Nias has been launched. The Visitniasisland.com tourism information website is aimed at travelers heading for Nias or already here.
Nias Island have all the ingredients for a great tourism destination; miles of beaches, world class surfing and a unique culture, to name a few. Yet few travelers make their way to Nias, and most of them are surfers going to a only a few locations on the island. Part of the reasons for this has been lack of information. With the launch of this website this will hopefully change. This is the first tourism information website covering the whole island, with comprehensive information about accommodation, flights, local transport and activities. We think that this information will generate more visitors to the Island as well as interest from the wider tourism industry.
The Visit Nias Island campaign is managed by the same team that developed the North Nias Tourism webpage and associated social media. Visit Nias Island is a non-for-profit project aimed at promoting tourism on Nias Island by providing visitors with current travel information. The Visit Nias Island project is currently hosted by the Nias Heritage Foundation. For more information take a look at; www.visitniasisland.com
