BO’A

While staying at Bo’a Vida, you will enjoy one of the best surfs in Rote. Just at your doorstep you can enjoy Bo’a’s famous wave, known as a wave of many moods.
Depending on the swell, wind and tide, this break can provide a powerful barreling wave one day, to fun and playful long walls the next. The best time to surf is dependent on the day, but usually the low tide coming in or the outgoing tide is the best time to hit this spot.

DANA

Right in front of Bo’a Vida, on the horizon you can see Pulau Dana. There is a beautiful almond shaped left-hander that requires a solid swell from the right to break. With an easy take off, the wave brings you into the shallow inside of the reef that turns into a barrel you won’t forget.
Located inside a small natural pass, the reef on the north side also produces a fun and easier right-hander. We can hire a boat for you that pick you up at Bo’a Vida.
