Part of several small islands in the area, Sabang is located in Weh Island. Like the rest of the country, Sabang has dry and wet seasons through the years, averaging between 23 - 31 Celcius degrees. The coastal life of Sabang contains a rich history. Before World War II, Sabang used to be one of the most important port cities aside from Singapore. It continued to be one of Indonesia’s commerce hubs, despite momentary halts due to political unrest and the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami in 2004. Today, with vibrant local culture, stunning nature, and much smaller crowds, Sabang shines through as a hidden gem of Indonesian tourism.
