Worth mentioning that this is now called Palambak Island Resort as it was purchased by an Australian named David (see -http://palambakislandresort.com). In order to get here we flew to Medan, hired a driver to take us 10 hours (approx. AUD $70) to Singkil. We then hired a speed boat which is the more expensive route for $150 each way. Also... More
