Pulau Tailana


How much is it going to set me back?


  A bill please!


Bungalow for two people: 80.000 Rp per night and bungalow 

Food: 100.000 Rp a person (meals 3-times a day, including coffee, tea, Milo, etc.)

Transfer from Pulau Balai to Pulau Tailana and back: 150.000 Rp on a speed canoe (one way, per boat)

Island hoping tour on a local motorized boat with snorkeling: Possible on request (around 100.000 Rp per boat, about 7 hours). 

Mawan, who runs the accommodation, brings all the provisions necessary for your stay with him. There is obviously no shop on the Pulau Tailana, so if you desire to bring in your own groceries, snacks or drinks with you, you can do that before you reach the island. Closest shops are in the village on Pulau Balai, which is the gateway to the whole Pulau Banyak archipelago, and from which you depart for Pulau Tailana.  

Besides, Mawan can help you with organization other activities in Pulau Banyak.  

Important note:
All prices stated on this website are in Indonesian Rupiahs (Rp). Should you need to know how much it is in your currency, please go to xe.com.

There are no ATMs accepting international credit or debit cards in Pulau Banyak archipelago, so we suggest you withdraw your cash already in Medan (numerous banks) or in the town of Singkil (Bank Aceh and BRI), or potentally in Rimau, which is a small town a few kilometers before on your way to Singkil. 

Bringing in a sufficient supply of bottled water to Pulau Tailana is strongly recommended. The water can be purchased from one of numerous shops on Pulau Balai before you embark your boat bound for Pulau Tailana (see above).
