Apart from beaches, hammocks, corals, fish – for viewing as well as for eating – , variable-experience dive resorts and reminiscing about the recent Indonesian history, the Togian Islands still had something else to offer.

As you may have expected, this website does take an interest in crabs, as a side issue only, of course. And if nothing else, the pictures at least balance some of the more serious thoughts of the previous entry.
