Our island, Pulau Weh is located in the Sumatra region of Indonesia and is called “zero kilometer” as it is the very northern tip of Indonesia. We are neighbored by Malaysia and Singapore.
It is full of jungle, forests, various wild animals and abundant marine life.
You can enjoy the local city life through markets full of fresh fish, fruits and meat. Then you can stop by at a secret waterfall to cool down. Enjoy coconuts along the way and join us at Gapang Beach where turquoise sea and white sand beach await you.
