Iboih (Teupin Layeu)

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

The beach area near Pulau Rubiah has become known as Iboih. Teupin Layeu is a more exact name. Here we use Iboih. This area has more of a backpacker and family feeling than Gapang. Besides diving, snorkeling, swimming and relaxing the area is also nice for walks, either north to the next beach and Km 0 or south along the path to Ujung Patek and Lhok Weing.

The island Rubiah just outside is worth a visit. There are even a few bungalows on the southern end. It is possible to swim over, but only if you are a good swimmer. Use fins and remember that the current in between can be very strong. Don’t do it alone. Otherwise, go by boat. Boat trips are arranged by a boat owner community group. They have a shop at the parking lot "Loket Boat". There are also glass bottom boats available.

KLKP View information at the parking lot is owned by a tourism community group. They arrange boat trips, motorbikes, bicycles, snorkeling equipment etc. Internet is available next to the dive shop, Rp. 8.000/hr. However, many establishments now offer free Wi-Fi. Ph: +6285260904101 (Mr. M. Nasir Is).

Several restaurants and coffee shops can be found at the fishermen's beach and parking area are overlooking the beach. They serve mainly Indonesian food. Beyond the gate to the bungalow area are also several restaurants, serving Western inspired food, such as Dolphin, Mama, and Dee Dee’s. Most accommodations have their own restaurants, such as Olala, O'Ong, Yulia's and Iboih Inn.

Bungalows in Iboih have improved their standard over the last few years. Inexpensive bungalows are still there, but there are now more bungalows with private bathroom, even with aircon.
