Was skeptical about the trip to Gua Sarang as we were offered to get there with a fee (on top of an entrance fee) on a jetski. We passed and settled for a pic on the swing instead.

Located id south-west side of Weh island. To reach the cave you can either by small boat from the entrance or walk around 200 meter along the rocky coast. Be aware of the tide, you could face difficulty walking during high tide.

A bit of a hike to get to. Nothing serious but it requires some climbing and walking over rocks. Nice area for snorkeling and scuba. The cave formations are interesting. Small entrance fee. Water is very clear and there are lots of fish and other...More
