About the area
Deserted white sand beaches, unique mangroves, uninhabited little islands, intact coral reefs, diverse marine live and world-class waves are some of the features that make Rote a little paradise on earth.
Rote has two distinctive seasons: the dry season and wet season, with the in-between seasons. During the dry season (May – Sep) the sky is nearly always clear with regular trade winds from the south east and cooler temperature. The wet season (Nov – Feb) sees some rainfall especially December and January and temperatures rise. In between seasons there are light variable winds and very pleasant temperatures. Mosquitoes are a rare occurrence due to the arid climate of Pulau Rote.
Rotenese people are friendly and helpful but since tourism is something quite new on their island they tend to react quite curious towards western travelers. They are mainly of Christian faith and religion plays an important role in their lives.
Economically Rote is characterized by lontar plantation, fishing, seaweed farming, agriculture as well as animal rearing. Here you will get used to see animals running free throughout the landscape and pigs looking for crabs on the beaches is an entertaining sight. Apart that you usually are able to watch cows, horses, buffaloes and monkeys inhabiting the villages, forests and beaches around.
Rote’s food culture is generally based on organic local products. Fruits and vegetables you are able to buy in the local markets are mainly grown on the island, meat and fish you usually buy directly from the local farmers and fishermen.
All in all Rote offers you an exciting tropical island destination, which unlike other famous destinations around Indonesia is still remote and unexplored.
