Headhunting was practiced on this remote island until the late 20th Century! After so long sailing amongst uninhabited islands and white sand beaches, we step ashore in Nias and get to experience the rich culture and heritage there. By chance we got to see a tribal war dance and demonstration of the stone jumping that the island is famous for. Sailing around the world is all about the people we meet and the rich cultural experiences that exist in each country we visit.
