A slender, rain-starved, limestone gem with grainy white beaches and epic surf, Rote floats south of West Timor. Offshore winds create swells wild enough for expert surfers, but astonishingly also gentle enough for beginners. Discover a mixed scenery of natural limestone bridges, undulating green-gold grasslands, tiny offshore islands bordered by hectares of deserted beaches, intact coral reefs, rare mangroves, turquoise bays and more top-class waves. Diving is exceptional due to large numbers of manta and dugong, plus the endangered snake-head turtle. With its own culture, beautiful ikat weavings, ritual traditions, and the Sasando (a musical instrument unique to the island) Rote offers a thrilling tropical getaway, still unexplored and remote.
