Things To Do At East Timor

Snorkeling in clear, warm waters and seeing the amazing pristine underwater world having incredible diversity - coral and fish and hundreds of other marine creatures is an experience you wil never forget.

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of a naturally beautiful, simple and untouched part of the world: walk, swim, read, sleep, meditate, dream; eat fresh vegetables, fresh fruit and fresh seafood; breathe fresh, fresh air.

You can see pods of dolphins, migratory whales; and visit villages and beaches around the extensible coast. Also glide across the water in an outrigger – watch fishermen catching fish using spears in the traditional, see another way of life

Climb to the highest peak on Atauro – the summit of the sacred Mt. Manucoco (997m) – pass through grasslands and rainforests, mountain villages and traditional gardens

The spirit of hiking around the coast or over the hills to the west coast of Atauro with its sparkling white coral beaches and close to shore reef gardens; stay in remote villages as guests of local communities and see traditional craft work being made

Fishing will be added fun to your trip– do carry along lure, line or rod or try the traditional way with a spear. Taking home your fish or squid or lobster to be roasted over hot coals assures heavenly satisfaction.

Go bird-watching along the coast and in the hills. Timor-Leste is a sanctuary for a variety of rare species. These birds make this island exclusive.

Riding a bicycle along the east coast of the island from Vila to Akrema on the northern tip, breathing in the fresh air, just gives you the most deserved holiday.

Basket-weaving can be learnt from the Makili or Macadade women and take home your own basket ware.

At East Timor you just cannot miss out on scuba-diving on some of the best and untouched coral reefs in the world.Play in the lagoon in a dug-out canoe – learn how to paddle and direct it out to the reef.

The nights can be tranquil by listen to the ancient traditional singing of the elders or the music of the young people go to Makili by outrigger in the moonlight to see traditional dancing OR just amuse yourself in an old-fashioned way – strum guitar, play board games or sit on a deserted beach watching a golden moon rise out of the sea
