Follow a wonderfully circuitous route across Weh Island, taking in the natural beauty and then stopping in an alluring oceanfront village.
After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a leisurely drive up to an elevated ridge that offers panoramic views of volcanically formed Weh Island. Not far inland, you will find Anak Laut, a clear freshwater lake that supplies drinking water to the entire island.
Continuing along a series of winding roads, you will soon enter an expanse of emerald-green rainforest and pass through one fishing village after another. In time, you will reach the northernmost and westernmost tip of the Indonesian archipelago, a point of land marked with a monument known as Tugu KM 0 or Kilometer Zero.
Inaugurated in 1997, the monument is situated on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean, and the views from the top are spectacular. More scenic wonders await you nearby in Iboih Village, a small beach village that is a popular spot for divers and snorkelers. Feel free to wander about the village and relax on the beautiful beach, as Iboih is exceptionally welcoming and laid-back.
Then, following a snack of sweet pastries made with fried bananas and coconut, you will return to Sabang. The atmosphere is a bit more energetic here in the main city, especially in the Market Place, a collection of shops and stalls offering garden-fresh produce, seafood and meats. Expect the sounds to be lively, the fragrances mesmerizing and the vendors friendly. After visiting, you will drive back to the pier.
