Contrary to what I had expected, this place was not too far from the earlier location. It was a mere 20 minutes drive from the earlier location and a little set in in its location on the Sumatran tip.

I believe this was simply due to the fact that these waters were much deeper to accommodate heavy vessels and speed boats heading off to various parts of Indonesia. I was told that there are boats heading even to Java island from here, of course it may take up to four days before it reaches Jakarta.

However, it is not as busy as other ports that I have visited in Indonesia like Batam Island, Semarang and even Dumai perhaps but facilities wise, it was pretty decent. Not more than five boats depart from this jetty everyday.

The sea here too was absolutely bluish and beautiful and very clean in contrast to most other jetties. This is perhaps due to the fact that this part of it is quite close to the Andaman Sea. The world famous Andaman Islands are just 20 nautical miles away from this location but there is no direct ferry heading there. I wish there was, would surely make it much easier for us travelling there from Malaysia and surely much cheaper too. 

Here my stop was pretty brief. I truly wise all port jetty's were as clean as this. By now, it is just past noon and our tummy's were already making noises and we had to leave back into town to catch some lunch.
