Beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal clear water
Sulawesi is divided into five main provinces, namely South, Central, West, Southeast and North Sulawesi. The different customs, culture, religion and language people still coexist in harmony. Sulawesi has a marvelous natural beauty, with a dramatic background of mountains and sea, which makes it a unique place to visit.
Tanah Beru is a boat builders’ village. Many boat builders from the region moved to Tanah Beru, which results in a concentration of boats under construction. Most boats are of the Phinisi type and built without the use of any technical drawing. Even the connections are made with wooden pins.
Bira beach is a tropical getaway, with powdery white sand and pristine turquoise waters.
