Enjoy the journey, not just the destination
This spacious vehicle and passenger ferry service (3.5 hours) is the slowest but one of the most comfortable crossing options available. The ferry departs at 8:00 am from the Dili Port and at 3:00 pm from Beloi Pier back to Dili. The vessel is spacious and comfortable with sitting room outside and inside. Though it is the slowest option, it is hard to argue with the price and the comfort.
To buy a ticket to Ataúro, you can go to the Dragon Star Shipping Company office in Dili across from the port or show up at the pier at least 45 minutes before departure.
