INDONESIA - Togian Islands

The Togian Islands are pretty much undiscovered territory as far as tourism goes. There are a number of beach losmen dotted around, and the clientele is almost exclusively Western, but in terms of mainstream tourism, the Togians are off the beaten track.

Not for long, though. If you manage to ignore the fairly typical and disgusting town of Wakai - smelly, dirty, environmentally hopeless and only there as a port for the boats to and from the mainland - the Togian Islands are relatively untouched, though worrying trends such as fish bombing and hunting the almost extinct coconut crab are symptoms of typical Indonesian foresight. There are six main islands, plus the recently-erupted volcano of Unauna, as well as countless tiny islands dotted all around, and with the lush vegetation and beautiful blue sea it's a perfect place for paradise.
