The West Timor islands have some of the best uncrowded waves in Indonesia. The book points you to a long lefthander with cheap rooms right on the beach. You can organise yacht tours from here to the nearby Spice Islands, or check out the surf travel specialists which are all listed in the book.
After the 1999 vote for East Timor's independence, travel to West Timor was restricted for a while, but these days plenty of adventurous surfers travel here every year, scoring some on Indonesia's best uncrowded barrels for their efforts. >> ORDER NOW
Our #1 Recommendation for Timor:
It's definitely worth paying the $10 a day for Travel Insurance to avoid having to pay $50,000 for a medical airlift if you get badly injured on the sharp coral reefs or crazy roads. "If you can't afford Travel Insurance, you can't afford to travel" - get the best value Travel Insurance here.
