Ataúro is the largest island of Timor-Leste, a recently independent country and new tourism destination. Timor-Leste has a strong unique cultural heritage reflecting many influences and has much to offer those who enjoy holidaying off the ‘beaten track’.
It has jagged mountain ranges, dense forests, cultivated river valleys and beautiful beaches, most of which are almost deserted. Off shore you’ll discover pristine reefs. Natural beauty is everywhere you look.
Dili, where you will arrive, is a modern city rapidly developing with accommodation, restaurants, shopping and other amenities. In contrast outside of Dili, the small towns and traditional villages of the surrounding districts are little changed with most Timorese still having a subsistence fishing and farming lifestyle.
