Ataúro is geologically intriguing with overhanging cliffs, stepped terrace formations, limestone caves, rock fossils and even fresh water and small hot water springs.
In general it is very rugged with a high mountain spine stretching from the south and gradually diminishing in the north. Ataúro is incredibly dry with little water run-off and this contributes to the amazing reefs and sea water clarity.
If you are interested in exploring more of the island organise transport (local boats / 4WDs) or discover on foot with a guide.
