Welcome to Kota Ternate
Ternate is gorgeous, swathed in jungle and wild clove trees. However, when you first land here, in the looming shadow of Gamalama, with several more volcanic islands dotting the deep blue channel beyond, you may be surprised by Kota Ternate's frenetic pace. The commercial and transport hub of North Maluku, Kota Ternate is booming as new investment floods in. The locals are pleased and, in 2017, the city was voted the happiest in all Indonesia. With its superb seafood, historic sites and easy access to the rest of the island and its attractions, visitors will be smiling too.
