The port of Pare Pare is located on the West coast of Sulawesi.
The coast around the port is sandy and muddy and so is the sea bottom.
There are two coral reefs located west of the harbour, Karang Tete and Karang Laubang. The access channel is 3 nautical miles long, 0.5 nm wide with a depth of -11m00 LWS.
The port was not in compliance with the ISPS code in 2009 but, as all Indonesian ports, it is perfectly closed with security guards at the gates.
