Revision as of 06:27, 3 May 2013

Located just 15 km from Banda Aceh, you find the quiet beaches of Lhok Nga (sometimes pronounced Lhonga) and Lampuuk. These are perfect for those wanting to visit Banda Aceh, while avoiding the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Lhok Nga is said to offer the best surfing, and Lampuuk to have the best beaches for swimming and basking in the sun. However, as the two are 30 minutes walk apart, and it's hard to tell where one beach stops and the other starts, it doesn't make much difference where you opt to sleep.

Contents

Get in

Taxis will take you there from the airport for a "fixed" price of 120.000 Rp, bargain hard and you'll get close to half that price.

Local public transport from Banda Aceh center (labi labi) can be taken from Banda Aceh for 10.000 Rp (last departure at 17.00).

Get around

Motor bikes and bicycles are available for hire in the area. Just ask at your Losmen.

See

The Cement factory - in fact, you can't miss it. It's right on the beach.

Do

  • Surfing is the name of the game here. Take care when swimming, because the currents in this region tend to be very strong.
  • Golf The driving range is located in Lhok Nga.
  • Take a walk in the lush forest up the cliffs near Lampuuk.
  • Beaching Halfway between Lampuuk and Lhok Nga is a string of shaded, elevated sitting areas. Sort of like a porch without a house. Shops are abound selling cold drinks and food (fresh coconuts and grilled fish are a couple of favorites).

Eat

Lhok Nga

You won't go hungry in Lhok Nga. However, you won't find any fine dining either. The local food here is great and very cheap, and there are plenty Rumah Makan within short distance of the homestays. Additionally, it will be hard for you to stay long in a homestay without being invited to join your host for dinner.

  • Nurmashomestay,[1] (Jl Lap, Golf - Lhoknga -'). Indonesian, Aceh and Western Food.
  • Harry's place, (Close to the river). It's actually not called Harry's place - it's just the name of the owner. Harry and his wife makes excellent coffee and banana pancakes for breakfast. 10.000.
  • Rumah Makan, (Just before Harry's). 18.00 - 22.00. Popular with the locals this place (only open for dinner) serves wonderful Acehnese cuisine. The hosts don't speak much english, but that's ok. Just point to whatever you want, a calculator will show you the price (which is very reasonable). Drinking water is served complimentary, but do try their fresh Juices (6.000 Rs). 10.000 Rs.

Lampuuk

  • Dian Rana. Dian Rana has a restaurant with a western menu as well with slightly higher prices.

Drink

Alcohol is widely unavailable. However, both Joe's Bungalows and Dian Rana serve beer, wine or spirits at a price showing the fact that it's transported here from Medan.

Sleep
