Halmahera, Tobelo

Tobelo

Tobelo

Humble Tobelo is northern Halmahera’s only real ‘town’. Its bay is fronted by a pretty jigsaw of islands, many ringed with golden sandy beaches, though they feel a world apart from this otherwise grotty little backwater. The most accessible isle is Pulau Kakara, where there is now a government-run fishing and diving resort that is Halmahera’s only consistent draw.

The main Kao–Galela road (Jl Kemakmuran/Jl H Simange) is bisected just north of the market by Jl Pelabuhan leading 300m to the main port.
