AT ETON BEACH
This is probably the nicest white sand beach on Efate (there aren’t very many). It really is beautiful, with a gorgeous turquoise lagoon, and there are lots of little whares that you can set yourself up in for the day for a picnic. The locals own and look after this beach and as such will charge you a small entry charge.
Imagine floating on a tube in crystal clear water, surrounded by lush green vegetation, under a clear blue sky with only the sound of the birds and waterfall to serenade you. This is all possible after an easy walk through the garden and bush to enjoy and relax in the magic that is Eden.
Every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings the Nambawan Café (in the heart of Port Vila on the water in front of the Art and Crafts market), has a free ‘Moonlight Cinema’ where recent release or movie classics are shown on a big screen with the harbour as a backdrop. Grab a beer and a snack and relax with the locals.
Explore Vanuatu from the air with our good friend Simon, who owns Vanuatu Helicopters. The view is breath taking, and it will really help you get your bearings. If you’re feeling really rock star you can organize for the helicopter to pick you up from the beach at Breakas.
TAKE A LESSON
At Sea Horse Ranch at the end of Devils Point Road. Have a lesson with Eloise, the owner – an amazing French instructor. The horses are beautifully trained, definitely not typical kick along riding school ponies.
