How did other travellers experience Pulau Weh? Read how they
expressed it in these direct quotes.
Carmillo (18 yo) from Austria:
Better than expected. People actually living here - therefore real
price shops. Basic living. Coral. Sharks. If full of tourists? Then
like what? needs development of water supply/sanitation.
Simon (27) from England:
3 dives and seen everything - sharks, (well I missed them but
everyone else saw them and said I must be blind??) turtles, octopus,
manta rays, eagle rays, massive groupers, huge schools of barracuda.
Excellent diving with such amazing variety. Great Chai and poached
egg breakfasts at Mama's. I donated my Marmite.
Betti (27) from Munic, Germany:
Pulau Weh is beautiful with a good atmosphere. Lifestyle is easy and
close to the locals. Great snorkeling, many fish. O yeah, Mama -
thanks for the Betti Sandwiches!
Jaap (37) from Holland, a visiting dive instructor:
After 2-3 weeks in Gapang he says: "I have traveled around a lot,
but Pulau Weh has touched me. The beauty, the green nature, the
people, and for sure the diving."
Petra (31) from Germany a dive instructor on her second visit to
"Visibility and variety can be compared to Sibadan, Borneo. I like
it better here. The clear blue water is amazing and the currents a
challenge to me. I have had my best dives ever in Pulau Weh."
Claus (40) from Germany:
"Nice to spend time with a big family in the public next to the
well. Once they get started in the morning you get a pretty good
breakfast and the BBQ dinner is exquisite."
Lenka Mikleticova (29) from Czech Republic:
"One of the best experiences in my life. After one day snorkeling I
decided to try diving. Beautiful! Hopefully I do more dives here in
Steven Shannon from Texas wrote:
"I did 6 dives, every one of them blew me away. If there were any
problem it is that there is so much to see, it is a sensory overload
and maybe too much for my brain to handle. The staff were all great
and so was the overall experience."
Pablo Villanueva from Spain wrote:
"Really great dive sites! I had the best diving in Southeast Asia so
far. Friendly and professional staff and relaxed island to be in."
Jose "Pepe" Duben from Czech Republic:
I decided to join an open water dive course after I saw how
beautiful it is here under water. It was a great experience to dive
in this place and I can recommend everybody to do the same. Nice
dives with nice people.
Hannah Derwent, 30, Australia:
"Pulau Weh is Paradise". We came as a family and stayed at Sumur
Tiga, which was a real treat, a nice relaxing holiday for Mum and
James and Travis, 22 Ohio, USA:
Pulau Weh - Island Paradise, stunning island with bungalows directly
on the sea, here we went around the island on a boat and went to an
awesome waterfall. Have a Hydro-massage by just standing under the
waterfall- AWESOME- better than Thailand. Do yourself a favour and
Check Out Sumatra!!!
