An island situated 25 km (16 mi) north of the capital, Atauro makes a perfect escape from the noise and heat of Dili. The sparsely populated island has just two small villages on its eastern side, each offering a scattered few places to stay, eat, and recharge. Meanwhile, its beaches lead out into abundant, crystal clear waters. Snorkeling and diving excursions top many Atauro itineraries, as do inland hikes through the forests. Make the most of your holiday in Atauro by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our East Timor itinerary maker.

Where to stay in Atauro
Most Atauro accommodations lie in the small east-coast villages or just outside, along the shore. Some small, squat hotels provide standard rooms with air-conditioning, private bathrooms, and other facilities. Many visitors opt for the island's ecotourism lodges and resorts, with a good number of charmingly rustic and sustainable retreats to choose from. Again, most sit on the eastern shore of the island, although you'll find a couple of options farther inland.
