SIMEULUE > HOW TO GO THERE


Simeulue is far off, but easy to reach. There are frequent air connections with Medan, Banda Aceh and Meulaboh. The only airport is Lasikin, 12 km west of Sinabang. The airlines offer transportation between your address in town and the airport to a fair price. There are also car ferries from Labuhan Haji and Singkil. The two airlines NBA and Merpati are cheaper, but risk of delays and cancellations are greater.
