Oekussi

Destination Details

The enclave of Oekussi is a challenging district to visit. Surrounded on three sides by West Timor, this isolated former Portuguese coastal enclave is politically part of Timor Leste. Pantemakassar, the capital, was the first permanent Portuguese settlement in Timor. The first Portuguese landing place is five kilometers west of the capital at Lifau, where a monument marks the spot. About 1.5 kilometers from Pantemakassar is the old hilltop of Fatusuba, offering wonderful views. Local religious festivals are held at the shrine here.

You can visit with the “Nakroma Ferry or overland across the border (vehicles must have releases to cross the border from the Director of Transports office) but once you get there Oekussi is a really special place. Dominated by stunning geography, Oekussis mountain ranges plunge right into the crystal clear waters of the Timor Straight – the snorkeling and fishing here is outstanding.
