Breuh Island

Monday, March 12, 2012

The fishing village Lampuyang is the major entry point on Pulo Breuh. Here is a post office, a health center and the local government. Lampuyang was very hard hit by the tsunami. If you land here it is better to continue to Gugup or the villages beyond to the north. Gugup is spread out and its economy based on agriculture. Nearby are Lambaru and the fishing village of Serapong, Gugup sits on a very scenic peninsula with a calm bay on one side and a grand beach on the other. Further north along the dramatic and scenic coast line are the villages of Alue Raya, Rinon and Meulingge.

The best beaches on Pulo Breuh are found in the Gugup area. Five hundred meters west of the village Lambaru is Pantai Lambaru with yellow sand and big waves rolling in. A similar but more secluded beach is Pantai Baluh to the north. At the northern end of this beach are fluorescent rocks. At special occasions the locals use the dust of these rocks as decorations on hats and shirts. Baluh is a 1-1,5 hrs walk from Gugup. Further up the coast, near Rinon and Meulingge are more beautiful beaches to explore.

Pulau Breuh is the island that has most jungles left and it is easy to spot wild boar, rusa deer, monkeys, squirrels and many beautiful birds and butterflies. The highest mountain in Pulo Aceh is on Pulo Breuh, Gunung Ceumoh. It is clad in jungles and offers a nice one day trek up and down. Start the trek at Pantai Baloh.

The coconut palms on the small island Pulau Kelapa near Gugup were planted by a holy person. The coconuts can only be collected if used for local consumption. If anyone collects the nuts with the intention to sell them, he will never make it back alive, according to the locals.

In the far north, east of Meulingge the unique historical remnant; the 132 year old light house "Willem's-Toren", still in operation. Willem's Toren is worth a visit. Besides the tall classical tower, there are buildings from three different times.

The oldest buildings are intertwined by roots and trees. Two generators form the 1940ies are still producing the needed electricity. The light house staff can help out with information, show you around and to cook some noodles and coffee, but bring the food stuff and give some money in a handshake for their help.

The place can be reached by a nice 4 kilometer walk from Meulingge. An alternative is by boat to Ujung Peuneung. Land at the almost totally broken down light house pier and follow the path up the hill. It is a nice walk. This is best route if you do the excursion from Pulau Weh.

pulau dengan hutan yang terjaga lestari dan isi hutan yang penuh satwa liar yang menarik..apalagi dengan koleksi kupu-kupu dan burung, monyet dan rusa..wow..membayangkan suasana hutan yang orisinil.
Genset-nya masih berfungsi sejak tahun 1940 hingga sekarang..benar-benar kualitas barang yang bagus, apalagi dibandingkan dengan genset masa kini..yang paling tahan sekitar tiga tahun sudah turun mesin total...
