Welcome to Rote

Ba’a, Rote’s commercial centre, is a sleepy port town on the west coast where fast ferry and flights land, but people don't tend to linger. Stunning Pantai Nemberala is home to the world-renowned T-Land break, and there are dozens of hidden beaches to the south and north. To find them you’ll roll through villages, over natural limestone bridges and through undulating savannah that turns from green in the December to March wet season to gold in the dry season, which is also when offshore winds fold swells into barrels. Don’t overlook the tiny offshore islands where you can find gorgeous ikat, turquoise bays and more surf.
