“worth the trip”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

A long way out of town, down a very steep rough entrance, but a great location. Previously, run by an english chef we had a fabulous lunch. The staff trained by him do an admirable job on burgers, chips and drinks but there is a lot more could be done here and it would be 5 star. The entry/exit road can be a bit confronting, even with a 4 x 4. Don't attempt it in the rain if you are not a confident driver. Worth the trip just for the view and the peace and quiet - like being on your own little bit of paradise.

“Paradise.”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Like everywhere on the east coast of Santo, this place is another paradise. There isnt much there but its definetly worth taking a few snapshots, and having a chat with Ronan (the owner). Unfortunately we discovered it on the last day of our trip and the restaurnt bar was not open....It didnt matter, its heaven.
My recommendation is...Dont go to Velit Bay...You'll never want to leave!

“It's got it all !”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

This is a huge plantation which has a beautiful azure blue beach and white soft sand where you can swim and snorkel..it has acres of lawn to play games and volleyball or you can use their kayaks and surfboards to your heart's content. There is even a fresh water pond and river to wash off the salty water before you walk up to the restaurant for a delicious meal and drink...it really has got it all !!

“Definately stop here”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Great little secluded bay, nice for a swim although not as pristine as Champagne beach. We had lunch here and the food was great. Nice quiet place to spend a few hours.
