The Secret Garden, Mele

3.1
#6 of 13 in Parks in Efate
Wander the botanical gardens at The Secret Garden and view many kinds of wildlife in the reptile park. Lizards, turtles, and snakes like the indigenous boa await, but you will also see birds, foxes, and more. Keep an eye out for coconut crabs--the largest living anthropod in the world--and learn how to properly handle one. Old houses and plaques dot the park and teach visitors about Vanuatu's history. You can also take a dip in the swimming pool on hot days and check out the barbecue areas and restaurant.

  • We were here for one of their island feast nights, which included a talk about Vanuatu culture, a kastom dance and magic show, a demonstration about the local dishes, kava tasting, and a feast which was served in their dining room. We arrived before sunset so we could walk around the grounds and read the displays set up describing Vanuatu history and legends. We then headed upstairs to the treehouse lounge to enjoy some drinks before the show. We loved the entire experience: the displays (which our friends said was better than the museum in Port Vila), a really good dance and cultural show, and a pretty amazing array of tasty dishes served at the feast. We also loved the old-style Polynesian look of this place. Their show may be less flashy than some of the bigger resort shows (you won't see any fire dancing here), but we thought it was wonderful!
  • Amazing place the staff were excellent, food was soooo good :) kids loved it thanks mark an jenny :)
