Indonesia // Sulawesi //


Four hours from Ampana and at the western end of Batu Daka, Bomba comprises two dozen houses and a mosque facing north across a pleasant bay. There’s a long beach 5km west of town, but it’s the sea that warrants a visit here, with the Togians’ best snorkelling an hour away at Catherine reef. The coast near here is interesting, too, offering the possibility of seeing crocodiles in remote inlets; some islets east of Bomba are completely covered by villages, their boundaries reinforced with hand-cut coral ramparts.
