PULO ACEH > TRANSPORTATION


GOING TO PULO ACEH

Click to enlargeThere is a ferry from Ulee Lhe to Lamting on Pulo Nasi. The schedule is still temporary, but normally Tues., Thurs., Sat., and Sun. morning to Nasi and back after noon. Rp. 15.000. From the ferry terminal in Ulee Lhe.

Traditional boats leave Pulo Aceh at 08.00 for the market in Banda Aceh and return back to the islands after the noon prayers, app. 14.00. From Ulee Lhe (near the fast ferries for Pulau Weh) to Deudap and to Lamting on Pulau Nasi, daily except Fridays, Rp. 15.000. From  Lampuloh (app. 500m from Peunayong towards the sea) to Lampuyang on Pulau Breuh daily except Fridays. Sometimes pay, sometimes free! Also occasional boats to Gugup and Meulingge.

Boats can also be chartered on Pulau Weh. The cheapest ones are from Keunekai or Paya Keunekai. A one day roundtrip can cost app. Rp.1 million, depending on boat size and your bargaining skills.

ON AND BETWEEN THE ISLANDS

Pulo Nasi has motorcycle taxis, so called "RBT". They wait for passengers in the villages of Rabo, Deudap and Kandang. At odd hours they can be difficult to find in other villages. Pulo Breuh has a few occasional motorcycle taxis, but they can be very expensive. The second alternative is walking.

Pulo Nasi is small enough for that; however Pulo Breuh can be a bit too big. A walk from Gugup to Meulingge can take five to seven hours. The sceneries along the walk make the walk into an attraction by itself.

If you want to go between the islands, you can either ask around if anyone is going, or charter by yourself.
