Rote Surf Trips

Book your surf trip in Indonesia

An Indonesian Jewel - Rote

Rote island is one of the very few remaining surfing frontiers in Indonesia and hasn’t been getting the same amount of love as other hotspots like Bali or the Mentawais. We aren’t really sure why because the place is just one tropical dream with waves that can rival any other destination in the world when it’s on. The island is home to an impressive lineup of waves ranging from long winding lefts to mellow little A-frames to empty caves as hollow as they come and wide enough that you could hide a freight train in. Rote is the perfect place if you are sick and tired of sharing mediocre waves with 20+ heads every time you paddle out as there is a chance that you’ll have some of the most impressive waves you have ever laid eyes on all to yourselves if you get lucky.

Be aware

Rote is arguably Indonesia’s best-kept secret and the area is yet to be fully discovered. As a result, some organizational & negotiation skills are required to get the best out of your vacation. Don’t forget, Rote is a relatively remote island a few hundred clicks away from the comfort and hustle of Bali and things aren’t always as simple as they seem. Don’t waste your time on small but time-consuming details and let us grind it out for you to make sure you’ll have the time of your life in one of Indonesia’s best areas for waves.

"...We stayed at Boa Vida for 10 days and LOVED it. The location is unreal. White sand beaches, clear blue water, looking at one of Rotes surf breaks right out of your bedroom window, your own "private" beaches a few steps away..."

Three reasons to try out Rote Surf Vacation


Get to surf one of the longest waves on the planet

Yes, you heard right...Longest. T-Land is the area’s premier wave and a blockbuster attraction in itself. In the right conditions, T-Land produces super long left walls that peel along the reef for several hundred meters over relatively forgiving coral shelves. The wave works on all tides, is super consistent and has 3 main sections that offer something for all skill levels. The wave is super forgiving on small swells but turns into a (manageable) beast once the swell hits above 8ft.


Rote Island has an array on offer for all skill sets

While T-land gets most of the attention, Rote has so much more to offer than just ridiculously long and perfect left wall that gets your leg burning when it's on. Rote is a wave mecca - period, featuring everything from heavy right slabs to picture-perfect a frame breaking over a forgiving reef. The area is jammed packed with waves and there are so many nooks and crannies yet to be explored.


There are plenty of non-surf activities available on Rote Island

With such an epic arsenal of high quality waves on offer it may well be that you’ll do nothing else other than surfing your brains out but should you want a break there will be plenty to keep you occupied here. Head out for an adventure ride around the area and discover pristine, untouched sandy beaches or mingle with the locals and get to know a little bit about their marvelous and unique culture. Jump back into the ocean and float serenely above the multi-colored coral reefs and spot turtles, manta rays and other beautiful sea creatures, armed with nothing else but a snorkel and mask. Indulge in delicious fresh seafood dining or get open water certified - there are plenty more fun things to do.
