Pulau Weh, Indonesia

Fundiving Extended (6 days / 5 nights. Incl. 8 dives)

The diving
Bored with rigid schedules, busy dive boats and crowded resorts. Looking to kick back in a hammock on a deserted beach and have spectacular diving at your doorstep? Pulau Weh is the place for you. Located an hour north of Banda Aceh on the Northern tip of Sumatra, this special location has an end-of-the-world feel to it. Indeed, 20 minutes drive past your resort you'll find Kilometre Zero, the westernmost point of Indonesia from which the government measures distances.

With steep underwater drop-offs and both oceanic and local currents converging, this is a location where interactions with big stuff such as mantas and larger sharks are a distinct possibility. On every dive expect to see reef sharks, turtles and rays cruising the dramatic moray eel-infested underwater topography. In addition, the beach dive in front of the dive shop is gaining a deserved reputation for critter diving, with ghost pipefish, waspfish and even mimic octopus being regularly found. Boat dives are single dives and the house reef can be dived anytime...

Pulau Weh is located north of the northern end of Sumatra, an hour by ferry from Banda Aceh. It is a mountainous, verdant island with waterfalls, caves and villages to be explored. Gapang Beach is located on the NE shore of the northern peninsular and is the definition of quiet. No bars, no clubs... just a diveshop, a few locally run bungalows and a couple of basic restaurants.

Your resort in Pulau Weh.
You'll be both diving and staying at the best-known and most respected operator on Pulau Weh. With over 12 years of experience in these waters these are the guys to dive with! Behind the dive shop they have created a 20 room boutique-style resort designed for leisurely contemplation rather than frenetic activity.

Your room
Upgraded room with double or twin bed, hot water, fan, bathroom with shower (or bath) & toilet, pantry, large veranda and just a few meters to the atmospheric dive center. The rooms are exactly what you want upgraded accommodation to be; Light, very spacious and with lots of soul!
