Welcome to Pulau Weh...

Click to enlargePulau Weh is one of the best snorkeling and diving destinations in Southeast Asia. Pulau Weh is still the Pulau Weh (or Weh Island or Sabang) that we remember; the coral reefs, the scenery, the atmosphere and its friendly people.Click to enlarge

There is so much more to this island than diving; fishing, nature, sceneries, atmosphere and much more. Ask any of the many travelers who stay month after month and still come back for more all the time. Iboih, Gapang, Sumur Tiga and Sabang Town are all interesting, relaxing and popular amongst foreign visitors.

The three most popular beach areas are Kincir, Iboih, Gapang, and Sumur Tiga.

THE NAME PULAU WEH

Western tourists have come to use the geographical name Pulau Weh or Weh Island. Indonesians normally use the administrative name, i.e. Sabang. It can be confusing when you ask for directions.
