Maitara Island

maitara.jpgWhen viewed from Ternate, the small, bushy volcanic cone of Maitara rises out of the sea just in front of Tidore. The island has some of the most accessible white sand beaches and snorkelling spots (often LOTS of inquisitive reef sharks!) around Ternate and Tidore, and makes for a great outing. Although it belongs to Tidore and is closest to the Tidorese port of Rum, Maitara is just as easily accessible by public boats from Bastiong harbour on Ternate.
