Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Diver and non-divers alike will enjoy a vacation at Hideaway Island Marine Reserve, a place where guests can swim, snorkel, dive, and relax in the water. This attraction is more than just accommodation. It offers three scheduled dives a day, but if you would rather stay close to shore, take time to discover the beach's beautiful secret. The coral reef just off shore is teeming with tropical fish and bright coral. Remember to wear reef shoes and be careful of the sharp coral. Also be aware that visiting to swim requires a fee.

Where to stay in Port Vila

As Efate's largest town and the hub of tourist activity, Port Vila offers solid lodging options catering to foreign visitors. Consider staying in an upscale hotel or chain resort along the shores of Vila Bay for easy access to beaches and central attractions. Many hotels and guesthouses allow children under 12 to stay free of charge, and checking for this ahead of time can help you score extremely economical accommodations. You can also look for affordable rooms a bit out of town, at inland guesthouses or low-key resorts. If you do choose to go that far, consider renting a car.
