The town of Malaka is quite familiar to the people of Timor Leste since daily, many travel across the border from Timor Leste to shop here for basic necessities. Malaka is also renowned among citizens of Timor Leste as a favorite tourist destination.

A popular vacation spot is the Motadikin Beach which is known for its pristine beauty and refreshing ambience. The beach is situated south of the Regency where visitors are greeted with unique scenery of rows of fishponds before arriving at the beach. "The beach itself is picturesque, located only about 11Km from the border. Here you can find vast stretches of soft white sand, and crystal clear blue waters" added Rofinus Bau. Tourists will also enjoy the spectacular view of sunset and the full moon rising – a picture perfect postcard of a tropical island.
Moreover, from January to March, when the waves are high, the beach is perfect for surfing.
Quoting the words of Indonesia's Tourism Minister, Arief Yahya, Deputy of National Tourism Marketing Development of the Ministry of Tourism, Esthy Reko Astuti said that border areas are today complemented with excellent infrastructure and facilities. "President Joko Widodo always emphasizes the importance of developing Indonesia's border areas, since these are the face of our country. So, do continue to develop the culture and attractions of these border areas so as to make tourists eager to visit Indonesia" added Esthy Reko Astuti.
