At the tip of Sumatra Island, is where Pulau Weh is located. To get there, we need to fly to Banda Aceh, the most northern city of Sumatra then a 45 minutes fast ferry to Sabang, Weh.
Lumba Lumba has rebuilt their resort after the 2008 Tsunami, their rooms are spacious and airy, a wooden veranda with sliding doors, facing the sea/beach above a hill slope behind the dive center. They do not have a restaurant, but there are a few restaurants on the beach to choose from to have your meals. Bare in mind that they are extremely slow in their service, if you are in a big group and you want your meals serve faster, try to order the same dish, or else order them 1 hour before hand and return after you take a shower. The pace of living on this island is just too relax. :-) Don't rush!
Weh is the only other place then Ambon that I have ever seen so many different species of moray eel, giant moray, white eye moray, snowflake moray, ribbon eels, snake eel, honeycomb moray and many more which I don't know the name for them.
Due to the current and depth, I recommend this place for advanced divers only.
