"The Tidore volcanic complex consists of two dramatically different volcanic structures. The beautifully conical 1730-m-high Kiematabu peak on the south end of Tidore Island is the highest volcano of the North Maluku island chain west of Halmahera. The broad, lower Sabale volcano on the north side of the island is a caldera containing two cones. Maitara Island, 1 km off the NW coast, forms another volcanic construct. Tidore was mapped as Holocene by Apandi and Sudana (1980)."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
