manado (sulawesi)

Tangkoko at the northern finger tip of the Island of Sulawesi (formerly Celebes) is  the place in the daytime to hire a boat to sail, snorkel and swim in the black sand coves around its coast.  In the evening the nearby Tangkoko-Batuangus Nature Reserve is one of the best places to see the world’s smallest monkeys known as tarsiers. When the sun sets these gremlin-like critters hop out from their tree homes to exercise their large eyes and feed on grasshoppers.
