 Other destinations
D'Aloha Resort on the Dahegila peninsula offers accomodation from 600,000-800,000 rupiah (june 2013). Daruba has a wider range of food available than this resort. Loud music is sometimes played in the resort's restaurant.
Very good Bahasa Indonesia is widely spoken. There are English language speakers, but they are a very small minority.
 Get in
Catch an overnight boat from Ternate to Daruba: Geovani on Wednesdays and Fridays. Agil Pratama on Mondays.These boats return to Ternate the following night and each has a limited number of cabins with fan cooling or air conditioning. There are also many cheaper sleeping spaces available on lower decks.
Three times a week there is a four hour boat to morotai leaving in the daytime.
 Get around
Bentols (motorbikes pushing a rickshaw like cabin) can seat two not overly large people and can travel wherever there is a bitumen road. These guys drive very slowly by most standards and get angry at other road users who drive at speeds which they consider unsafe: maybe the laid back tropical island speeds are something the world should imitate.
