Located 93 miles from the west coast of Aceh. Simeulue island is rarely visited by tourists. The tourists who come, they are only surfers who want to feel the waves of Simeulue. Not much is know about the underwater world in Simeulue Island. Beautiful beaches in the west of the island waiting to be explored. There are many other places of living coral reefs that were not visited by tourists. I only met two tourists on this island. Robert (57) and woman work for NGO i met in Teluk Dalam.

I took some underwater photos in Simeulue Island. please enjoy*

After the earthquake of 2004, the land rises up to one meter Simeulue. This incident led to the lifting of coral reefs. Many coral reefs in Simeulue were damaged by the earthquake. The earthquake caused a broken and dying coral reefs.
