"Peace at the end of the road..." Com by DSwede

Com Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 6 photos

Com is about as far away as you can get from Dili without quite arriving at the eastern point of the island at Tutuala.

Com is a popular relaxation destination for expats living in Dili due to the nice beaches, quiet serenity and stress free atmosphere. It is therefore a bit more busy on Friday and Saturdays since most of the expats work weekdays.

The drive up to Com will be on some beautiful, if not remote, roads that pass mountainous coast lines and sweeping plains with planted fields. What traffic does come to Com, usually stops at Com, since this is where the pavement ends. If you wish, you can take a dirt road south towards Fuiloro (~15km), at which point you can turn east and again continue to Tutuala on paved road (for most of the way)

Feel free to visit my East Timor page for more general comments about my time in the country.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:One of the last swimmable beaches on the coast.
  • Cons:Lights out early and must bring your own provisions.
  • In a nutshell:A peaceful retreat for many stressed expats at the end of the (paved) road.

    Oh, I'm the first one :) People seem friendly in this far away village. Always interesting to visit such places to see and learn how people live. And they even speak portuguese, my favourite language. I'm wondering how does it sound compared to the portuguese spoken in Portugal and Brazil.
