Beaches and underwater cave

Olele Beach in Kabila Bone District is 27 kilometres from Gorontalo or around an hour's drive on poor condition roads. The beach is ideal for diving to see various giant coral sponges. In the left side of Olele's beach there is vertical Jin Cave with 50 metres depth. Olele Beach is protected from extreme current, so diving can be done day and night along the year. Besides the Olele dive site, there are totaling 23 spots along the southern coast of Gorontalo from Biluhu village to Bilungala village.[8]
