Besides being part of the Ring of Fire – the most seismically active region on earth, Timor Leste is also part of the Coral Triangle ; the epicenter for biodiversity.

Timor Leste probably has one of the best shore diving in the world, entries are so easy and within 10 meters from shore and there’s a 20 meters drop-off. Timor is still such a new nation that tourism infrastructure is still at its infancy. There are no crowds at the dive sites so imagine having the whole dive site to yourself.

There are more than 30 dive sites to choose from and many more yet to be explored and discovered.All in all, if you are after some diving off-the-beaten-path, looking for an adventure or even finding a new diving destination, Timor Leste is the place to go.

From pelagic as big as blue whale or tiny underwater macro critters the size of a sesame seed.

Timor Leste has it all.
