Rubiah Island, Sabang

3.9
#1 of 7 in Nature in Aceh
The real highlight of Rubiah Island takes place just offshore, where coral reefs and tropical fish surround the coastline. Simple snorkeling gear lets you take a good look at diverse marine life that includes clown fish, sea cucumbers, starfish, giant clams, and small sharks. Take aqua shoes to protect your feet from the coral, but avoid stepping on and damaging the formations. If you get hungry, grab lunch at one of the restaurants on the island.

  • From the beach to Iboh Rubiah island can use a motor boat. Rubiah island into a place that is perfect for snorkeling, either a beginner or already an expert. The water is very clear and there is a very impressive marine life. Snorkeling equipment is also very accessible and affordable. We recommend that if you want to your Rubiah island along with family or colleagues (max 8-10 people/ship) because it can reduce the cost of the defection. If you are still a beginner should along with a friend who is already an expert in snorkeling or you can hire a guide there. Stay away from areas that are prone to sea urchins.
