The Gulf of Tolo (Indonesian: Teluk Tolo or Towori), also known as the Bay of Tolo, is the body of water lying between the eastern and south-eastern peninsulas of the island of Sulawesi (Celebes) in Indonesia.

Unlike the Gulf of Tomini to its north[1] or the Gulf of Boni to its south-west,[2] the Bay of Tolo is not recognized as a gulf by the International Hydrographic Organization. Instead, it is included in the area of the Banda Sea.[3]
