Welcome to Donggala & Tanjung Karang
The town was once a Dutch administrative centre and briefly the most important port in Central Sulawesi. When the harbour silted up, ships used the ones on the other side of the bay, and Palu became the regional capital.
In September 2018, an earthquake and tsunami caused severe damage to many parts of the coastline. Though the Donggala regency, a vast area that covers both sides of the Makassar Strait, was mostly okay, the city of Donggala suffered severe damage. The tourist areas listed here were lucky and escaped with only minor damage.
