When to travel

When To travel to Rote island

Rote Island has different seasons regarding weather and tourist numbers. Rote has good waves from March until November, the biggest swell comes in between May and September when the trade winds blow offshore and the breaks pick-up the south and southwest swells coming up from Antarctica.

Dry Season (April – November)

July and august are typically the coolest months with a steady breeze blowing for most of the day. Actively exploring Rote can be less straining in these temperatures with the added advantage of cooler nights to snuggle into. Still it won’t drop below 20/25° C – no need to pack the woolies!

Shoulder Seasons (March/April & October/November)

During the shoulder seasons in March/April and October/November it is generally warmer with less wind and a less consistent swell, though less people. This low season is the perfect time to come if you want peace and quiet.

Wet season (December – March)

Heavy rains and the storms come in from the south when temperatures and humidity are at their highest.
During wet season SEED Resort is closed.
