We could have been in The Bahamas! Stunning Port Olry beach on the far eastern tip of Santo is well worth the drive. The beach and bay are beyond beautiful, one of the prettiest we've ever seen. We had a guide, who left us there for a couple of hours whilst we had lunch (not the greatest, but we've heard... More

This was my favourite beach on the whole island, closely followed by Lonnoc Beach. When the weather is right, its a perfect aqua colour with some great snorkeling. It reminded me a bit of French Polynesia however without the luxury or price tag. We had the whole place to ourselves and loved every second of it....including the cows the wandered... More

The beautiful crystal clear water is lovely to walk or swim in. We just sat around in the shade watching the large turtles swimming close to the shore. Went to the Resort's restaurant for lunch. A great choice on the menu, all reasonably priced. If you've never tried Santo Beef, do try it. Meals were prepared fresh when we ordered.... More

As a hotelier myself, I had numerous guests recommend Port Orly to visit. So we had to go and what a treat as we only went for lobster and crab. We spent the best morning at Champagne Beach and headed on down to Orly for lunch. Yet another fantastic surprise! Another wonderful beach this time with a delightful beach bar... More

A lunch and beach stop on our day trip. We had tried to organise local fair for lunch to get a taste of Vanuatu. But were given fish and assorted veg while others dined on lobster for similar prices. They amazingly had no change when we tried to pay either. No smiles during the survive. The beach itself is nice... More

Having access to Luis kayaks allows a 900m paddle to an uninhabited island, where every trip we came across a turtle. Accommodation is rustic but organic, we were woken up by a coconut crab peeling the roof away one night.

Only an hour from Luganville is a beautiful beach to relax on. There're hammocks to lounge in, canoes to use. We stayed in the tree house which was great. It even had its own bathroom. You have a place of 2 (soon3) places to eat. although the menu is limited it was lovely. Breakfast was local produce. You can bring... More

This beach definately has the WOW factor. So beautiful with its soft white sand. We ate at the Harbour Beach Seafood Restaurant where I had one of the best Lobster Meals I have ever had. The other restaurant Chez Louis looked just as good. Our driver who was a really nice man was Sam 5614970 who is one of the... More
