Location
Rota Island is located in the Mariana Island Chain.

Today
Relatively undeveloped and offers a chance to experience the natural beauty of the Marianas. The dense jungle, prolific wildlife and solitary stretches of white sand beaches remain largely undisturbed. Lush, living reefs with hundreds of species of tropical fish, coral, sponges and crustaceans can be seen in crystal clear waters.
