Sanddollar Vanuatu Holiday Rental Accommodation provides great holiday accommodation, 30 minutes out of Port Vila, Vanuatu.

You "need" to experience this little piece of paradise....... Depending on traffic, the 45min to one hour drive to Sanddollar seems like an eternity, but it's worth every bump in the road.
