Luwuk Sulawesi

Well all we can say about Luwuk located in Sulawesi is that this is a quaint laid-back town in the north-central corner of the island. This town is now coming more into limelight due to the gas wells discovered south of the city. Earlier the main stay of the town was nickel mining and fishing but slowly things are heating up. The airport located bang on the sea ( well almost ) is one of the most beautiful we have seen till date. The food is great and the local coastline is awesome. Luwuk Sulawesi is a gateway for the Togean Islands which are great for scuba diving. There are places near the town where you can snorkel and see some good underwater life.

Top things to do in Luwuk.

  • Kilo 5: The small beach with white coarse sands and clean clear waters is a nice place to spend time. You can swim in the shallow sea here and snorkel the blues.
  • Kilo 8: This place is for some good coconut water and corn. The place is full during the evening weekends.
  • Salodic Waterfalls: About an hour from Luwuk north on the way to Ampana, the waterfall is in the hills. The water is clean and fresh and a dive into the pool is must.
  • Pulau Dua: A island with nice snorkel and brilliant views. Read more.

I stayed at Estrella Hotel. This is a great property with balcony overlooking the vast sea line. The food is good and setting is simply brilliant. Planning to book the hotels. Use this code and get discounts in your next hotel booking.
