We go there for snorkeling, but too crowded. Accomodation still minimum. Not really comfort when go there. Underwater object is great. Many beautiful fish there. You can see under sea ecosistem after tsunami is broke, but the reefs slowly form again. Meet so much nemo and dori there (from finding nemo movie)

Even though you do not dive/snorkel I would still recommend going to this beach when you visit Pulau Weh. The water is clear and you could pay for a trip using the glass-bottomed boat to see the corals and fishes. A round trip to Rubiah Island is IDR 350,000 (you do not have to bargain as the price for the... More

Was my first time there and I was amazed by its clear water and clean beach. A lot of fishes and absolutely beautiful. Best beach I've ever visited within 3 countries I've been.

Iboih offers a nice snorkeling and diving area. Great to see the underwater world. It is also a good choice for families with kids. There is a small sandy beach where kids can play and swim. That gives one of the parents the chance to enjoy snorkeling.

Around 40mins away from the Sabang port. Taxi ride was Rp150,000, where as a rickshaw ride around Rp100,000 for two. When we first arrived, we were surrounded by taxi/rickshaw drivers peddling to us. It was a little unnerving initially but after a while you realise that they were all offering the same price, none the higher than what we were... More

Iboih beach is not ideal for beach goers. It's rocky and only patches of sands for kids to play. Typical volcanic island with rugged terrains. From the moment we've been dropped off, the walk to the resort is hilly and with man made path. Be careful for those with knee problems as there are good 5 minutes of steps to... More

the equipment to rent for snorkeling is cheap. It cost me around 45,000 rph. The boat is only 200,000 rph. Top save cost, you can just rent the snorkeling equipment and playing with local around the area, no need to rent a boat because colourful fishes is everywhere.

It takes around 45 minutes by fast ferry to reach this island from the main land, Banda Aceh. You can rent a motorbike, which cost you around $6 to $8 /day or taking public transportation ($5) from Balohan to Iboh or if you want to stay overnight around the city, it will cost you almost the same amount.
