Visiting Nemberala In Rote Island

Visiting Nemberala In Rote Island

If you’re feeling adventurous and are planning to visit Rote Island, here are some things that you should know: Rote Island is Indonesia’s southernmost island and to get there, you need to fly to the capital city of East Nusa Tenggara Timur, Kupang, before a 2-hour ferry ride to Rote Island.

Rote Island is a destination that is completely off the beaten track and is usually visited by surfers. It is filled with beautiful clean white beaches and clear blue turquoise waters. If you’re not a surfer, Rote is definitely a great destination to get away from it all. It offers astounding landscapes, untouched nature and breathtakingly clear waters.

When you get to Rote Island on the port of Ba’a, you could bargain with the hoards of bemos and ojeks to get to your destination of Nemberala, which would approximately take you one and a half hours. Along the way you’ll notice that farm animals here are allowed to roam freely; you’ll find plenty of pigs foraging for food on the beaches. Another oddity is the random locations of graves, as people bury their dead on their own land.

There’s not much to do in Rote if you’re not a surfer. But there are plenty of beautiful deserted beaches that you could have all to yourself. You could enjoy long walks, amazing sunsets, snorkel and swim to your heart’s content.

Don’t expect fancy foods or shops. Warungs serve simple meals at a leisurely pace and if you forget to pack anything, you might not be able to purchase it while you’re in Rote. There are plenty of guesthouses in Nemberala; try searching online to pre-book rooms and transportation prior to your trip there.

Travel Tips:

– Bring enough cash just in case

– Pre-book accommodations and transportation

– Don’t forget to pack all your necessities!
