Taliabu Island Regency (Indonesian: Kabupaten Pulau Taliabu) comprises Taliabu Island (with offshore islets) which is geographically part of the Sula Islnds group lying west of Halmahera in the North Maluku province of Indonesia. It was formerly part of the Sula Islands Regency, but in 2013 it was administratively separated to form a separate regency. It is located to the west of Mangole Island and Sanana Island, the two islands which remain part of the Sula Islands Regency.

Administration[edit]

In 2013 the seven districts (kecamatan) on Taliabu Island (and its offshore islets) were split off from the Sula Islands Regency to create a separate Taliabu Island Regency (Kabupaten Pulau Taliabu); they are tabulated below with their areas and their 2010 Census populations.
