A short ferry ride from Dili, the capital of Timor Leste (East Timor), Atauro Island is the perfect place to laze around in the sunshine, doing nothing but splash around in the clear water, snorkel and eat delicious fish and traditional Timorese food. Tip: If you do head there, when you get off the ferry, turn right at the dock and walk for a little under a kilometre. There, you’ll find an Aussie guy called Barry who rents out gorgeous huts right on the beach for ridiculously cheap prices. Amazing.
