Manado is located at the Bay of Manado, [2] and is surrounded by a mountainous area. The city had 675,411 inhabitants at the 2010 Census, [3] making it the second-largest city in Sulawesi after Makassar. The latest official estimate (for January 2014) is 701,390.


The name Manado, which is derived from the Minahasan Language, comes from manadou or wanazou meaning "on the far coast" or "in the distance" and originally referred to the further of two islands which can be seen from the mainland. When the settlement on this island was relocated to the mainland, the name Manado was brought with it, after which the island itself became referred to as Manado Tua ("Old Manado"). [4] The name for Manado in the Sangir language is Manaro.
