Diving and Snorkeling:
The Diving and Snorkeling around Atauro Island is absolutely amazing from stunning shallow fringing reef teeming with fish life just inches below the surface to the deep walls and pinnacles that appear from the 3000+ meter depths surrounding the island.
We can organise local snorkeling trips to the outer reef just in-front of our lodge.
USD $5.00 per person (USD $10.00 per trip)
Hire of snorkeling equipment USD $3.00 per trip.
Tara Bandu reef tax:
All diving and snorkeling tours to the Tara Bandu site on the reef adjacent to Beloi harbor now incurs a USD$ 2.00 reef tax.
The proceeds from this reef tax will be used for maintenance of the protected area and excess funds will be channeled into the local community to help widows and to purchase medical supplies for the local community.
The tax can be paid at Barry's Place reception.
