Cruises from Pulau Weh
Pulau Weh or Weh Island is a small active volcanic island in Aceh Province, just off the northern tip of Sumatra. The largest city on the island, Sabang, has a deep water harbour providing a logistic hub for international vessels passing through the busy shipping route, the Malacca Strait. Islam is the main religion, as Aceh is a special province where Sharia law has been applied, exclusively for the province. Weh Island is best known for ecotourism and underwater diving.
Most visitors head straight to either Gapang or Iboih beaches, 40-50 minutes from the ferry, while some go hiking through to the volcanic mountain.
