The Togian (or Togean) Islands are an archipelago of 56 islands and islets, in the Gulf of Tomini, off the coast of Central Sulawesi, in Indonesia.
The three largest islands are Batudaka, Togian, and Talatakoh. There are 37 villages on the islands.
Formed by volcanic activity, the islands are covered by rainforest and surrounded by coral reef formations, which provide habitat and breeding areas for hawksbill turtle, Green Turtle and the Dugong. The Tonkean Macaque is found in the islands' forests. The Togian Hawk-owl, discovered in 1999, is endemic to the islands. The Togian White-eye, another endemic bird species, was described in 2008. ... read more

Wikitravel - Togian Islands

The most well known islands are Kadidiri and Melange. Kadidiri is reached by private speedboats from Waikai, provided free by the three resorts on the island. Melange can be reached by public ferry from mainland Sulawesi. Some of the islands that have been visited in the past now have abandoned hotels. Note that all the hotels charge per person (not per room!!), and there are no ATM's, so bring enough cash.
