Location: 42.0KM East of Dili. Enter the area enclosed by a wall. The entrance is rocky and care should be taken when entering with a vehicle with low clrarance.

Entry : One can enter the water at the small gazebo-like structure in the enclosure. The first few meters is rocky leading to sandy bottom and then on to coral structures.

UW profile : To the West the coral is more of an expansive coral cover with small outcroppings whereas to the East, the area is characterized by larger coral outcroppings in a more sandy area.

Points of interest: Alternating small walls and sandy slopes. Resident Napoleon wrasse to the East of the entry.

Topside : Nice shady area with big trees and gazebo. The area is often frequented by people from the local village who are interested in watching divers.
