Our Beautiful Location

Located within the coral triangle, Timor Leste is home to a stunning reef system. Most noteworthy is the extensive biodiversity of marine life plus unique unspoiled corals and it is all just metres off the shore making it an ideal place for snorkelers, free divers and scuba divers alike. The substantial length of the reef along the main (north) coastline, in close proximity to the capital city of Dili, means there are many sites to choose from and plenty of potential to explore new places along the way.

Aside from the main island’s coast there is also exceptional wall diving off of Atauro Island. With Beloi reef holding current record on fish biodiversity per site in the world! and is worth highlighting that Timor Leste contains an incredible diversity of cetaceans as well, with at least 30 species known to live or transit through these waters including the mighty Blue Whales migrating between the months of September and December.
