ISLAND STILL UNDISCOVERED

News Post New Entry

Threat to the Turtle Conservation Center - Pulau Bangkaru

Posted by jirikoo on February 11, 2012 at 12:40 PM

Back in 2010, upon the establishment of this website, I had expressed fears for the low-key tourism along with pristine environment of Pualu Banyak turning into one of those commercial places that are swamped and run down by people who do not seek to keep it that way. 


It can't have kept escaping attention of investors for so long. Now, there is a real threat to Pualu Banyak's authenticity and seclusion. According to various sources http://www.sumatraecotourism.com/pulaubanyak/index.html or http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/thread.jspa?threadID=2161033, a group of investors is going to build a surf resort on Pula Bangkaru, where the Turtle Conservation Center, organization for preservation sea turtles and their nesting sites, is based. As a result, this island and partly also Pulau Tuangku are closed for tourists. This measure is purely political and will affect the eco-tourism and the local communities in the whole area. Those who are planning to visit these two islands will be most likely prohibited from entering. I will keep you informed about further development.

since the year 2013, mr charly, no longer work in tailana island, the island is now replaced with mr tailana daswan. make sure you bring enough cash, because in Singkil no foreign exchange, and could not take the money using a visa card, master card and maestro only. I darmawan, email: [email protected], willing to provide information about the transportation to singkil and pulau banyak from the: medan, bukit lawang, ketambe, tangkahan, berastagi, tongging, tuk tuk dan lake toba, maupun bukit tinggi dan padang.

We've been on bangkaru this august (2012), and it was amazing! the only sad thing is, that it's getting more and more crowdy, the surfers are on the turtle-beach and more and more night-fisherboats which disturbs with their lights the turtles by laying the eggs. for further Info have a look on www.acehturtleconservation.org

I was informed it is not as it used to be, but it runs its business with limited capacity of tourists that may enter. Some of the main propagators of the place do not have influence on the operations on daily basis any more.

I was there (aug.2012), on bangkaru, the turtle Island. It's amazing, the stuff there is very kind, good trained (that means the food is always covered against flies, even in the kitchen is a cage agains the rats, and everything is clean, congratulation!!!). It's difficult to find out who makes the transportation, because it's only one boat, the "Aurora", it's captains name is Adi. Adi is only available on his handphone if he is in Balai (the main Island were you arrive with the public boat or ferry from singkil) and if there is no break down of the electricity...so you just try to call him for bring you to pulau bangkaru. If you reach him, you can trust him. but even then, it can be wavy and if the risk is tooo big, there is no transport, maybe next day... If you have time, it's great!!! if you are in a hurry, don't do it, always count minimum 1 day, better more, as a reserve. than you can enjoy it!
I'll send adi's phone-no. next time. greetings diana
