Ternate Island. Ternate, an island off the west coast of Halmahera, is
just 15 sq. km in size but it offers a treasure of sights and
experiences. There is an active volcano named Gamalama, two lakes, an
old Sultan's palace, a picturesque port and several good beaches.
The
peak of Gamalama is 1,271 meters high and can be reached by trail. It
has three craters and its surrounding environment is very beautiful.
Stones from Gamalama's eruption are scattered across the landscape.
Both Lake Laguna, 7 km from town and Lake Tolire, 24 km from town, can
be reached by car.
About 4 km west of the town, is the Afo clove
tree, which is said to be more than 350 years old. Good beaches are to
be found at Bastion, Ngade, Sulamadaha and Tobololo. Ternate Bay is
popular for fishing and motorboats can be hired to take you to the best
fishing grounds.
