Wakatobi National Park

Wakatobi National Marine Park is a marine conservation area. Name ‘Wakatobi; is taken from the abbreviation of the name of the larger islands that make up this archipelago, among them Wangi-Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia, and Binongko. Another name of the cluster of islands is also known as the Artisan Iron Islands (Kepulauan Tukang Besi).
