The island nation of Indonesia straddles the equator between the Indian and Pacific Oceans and lies at the heart of the ‘Coral Triangle’ - the epicentre of the world’s marine biodiversity. Nowhere on ...
One of the world’s youngest nations, Timor Leste remains untouched by mass tourism that has swept much of Southeast Asia. Inquisitive travellers will relish the pristine empty beaches, rugged landscapes and rich, cultural heritage. Head to the mountains and meander through misty coffee plantations, or witness Atauro’s fisherfolk using handmade goggles and spearguns to catch their meal.
Whatever you decide to do, Timor Leste is guaranteed to deliver an authentic and unforgettable experience.
For adventurous divers, Timor Leste’s lack of tourism means pristine fringing reefs and fantastic biodiversity. Imagine diving some of the best reefs in the world, often without another dive group in sight!
Much of the diving takes place from the capital city of Dili and the neighbouring island of Atauro, offering a wide range of experiences between them. From steep walls and sloping reefs to silty muck sites and vast anemone gardens, East Timor’s wonderful diving will rarely fail to impress.
Best time to visit: Best season May to October
