Sulimatan Baths
Local residents call it the Mamen bath, the freshwater pool in Edalode village, Pantai Baru sub-district, Rote Ndao.

Flagpole Beach (Tiang Bendera)
The iconic landmark on this beach is a 2.5 meter high concrete flagpole on a rock. That is proof of the struggle of the people of Rote Island to expel the Dutch invaders from their territory a few decades ago. The island itself has extraordinary beauty, and the most memorable moment is when watching an impressive sunset.

Mando'o Hill
After being spoiled by many beaches with beautiful views that have been mentioned above, there is one unique destination besides the beach which is also a pity to miss. The place is Mando'o Hill located in Kuli Village, East Rote District. This hillside beach has approximately 300 steps that we have to go through to get to the top of hill. If you imagine, you must be tired of climbing that many steps. However, don't worry, all fatigue will pay off after you get to the top. How come? From the top of the hill, we can enjoy the vast and beautiful view of the Indian Ocean.
