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

I spent three week in the north-western part of Sumatra, on a little archipelago called the Banyak Islands. From Medan it takes 6 hours by bus to go there. There are several busses a day and they are comfortable and inexpensive (100,000 RP per person). You can travel over night or by day. I have been to many islands in... More
