Pulau Weh’s main township (signposted Kota or Kota Sabang) is a mix of traditional fishing village, big-town bustle and old colonial-era villas. During Dutch rule, Sabang was a major coal and water depot for steamships. The town enjoyed a brief revival in the 1970s as a duty-free port, but these days it's a bit more relaxed, and its inhabitants generally fish or make rattan furniture. The main lure for travellers are the nearby beaches, which are the best on Pulau Weh.
