Cliffs, Caves and Hot Springs

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.
