PULO CINTA
A perfect blend of turquoise and blue sea stretching as far as the eye can see. Feel the calming whisper as the wind breeze as you admire the heart-shaped shoal, love is in the air here at Pulo Cinta.
 
Situated pleasantly off the coast of Tomini Gulf in Gorontalo Province in the northern part of Sulawesi Island, Pulo (or Pulau) Cinta literally means the island of love. You may not notice it right away, but if you look from above or through the lens of a drone camera, the shoal in this little piece of a heaven forms the shape of a heart - as if Mother Nature sculpted the universal symbol of love. Pulo Cinta also got its name from a local legend akin to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.  The story goes that during the Dutch colonial era, a prince from the Kingdom of Gorontalo fell in love with a daughter of a Dutch merchant. A tale of forbidden love, the two lovebirds from the conflicting sides would come to the small island just to be with one another. Pulo Cinta was their secret escape, a place of love amidst the bloodshed and violent war.

Amidst the serenity, you can gaze upon millions of stars painting the night sky and immerse yourself in the wonders of the universe.
