Rote Island

Location

WIKIPEDIA: Rote Island (Indonesian: Pulau Rote, also spelled Roti) is an island of Indonesia, part of the East Nusa Tenggara province of the Lesser Sunda Islands. It has an area of 1,200 km2 (463 sq mi). It lies 500 km (311 mi) northeast of the Australian coast and 170 km (106 mi) northeast of the Ashmore and Cartier Islands. The island is situated to the southwest of the larger island of Timor. To the north is the Savu Sea, and to the south is the Timor Sea. To the west is Savu and Sumba. The uninhabited Ndana island, just south of Rote, with an area of 14 km2 (5 sq mi), is the southernmost island of Indonesia. Along with some other nearby small islands, such as Ndao island, it forms the kabupaten (regency) of Rote Ndao Regency, which in 2010 decennial census recorded a population of 119,711.

For most guests traveling to Nemberala Beach Resort this means a fair trek from home; but the travel is part of the experience and the remoteness is what makes it so special! Rote is the Southernmost inhabited island of Indonesia. Although hot and tropical, it is much more arid than the islands to the north such as Bali, Java and Sumatra. This dryer climate means very few bugs and the ability to cruise around and enjoy the area without being drenched in perspiration.

Travel to Rote begins in Bali. Most passengers will need to overnight in Bali given the various flight schedules, but many choose to add an additional night or two to experience the wonderful culture and vibrant atmosphere of Bali. From Bali is a short 75 minute flight to Kupang, W. Timor, the capital of Indonesia's East Nusa Tenggara province, then onto Rote by flight or ferry.
