Introducing Baucau

While Baucau is best known for its beach, it’s actually a long way down (5km) to the water from the Old Town, and even further from the bland, Indonesian-built New Town (Kota Baru). The Old Town boasts a Portuguese-era mercado municipal (municipal market) and roadside town market where pyramid-shaped piles of potatoes, neat bunches of greens and mounds of maize form a colourful patchwork on the pavement. Head down through the market and take a left to spot the pink Pousada. A right turn at the roundabout takes you towards Lospalos, or keep travelling down the lush ravine to find the delightful palm-fringed beach of Osolata.
