It was our first trip to vanuatu and this was our first stop for 8 nights and then we would go to another island for the remaining trip. When we arrived at the airport there was someone waiting for us so we could be taken to the island. We took a nice 30 minute car trip with another couple .... More

What started out as a shaky start to our day trip turned into an experience that was a shame to leave. Brad was so accommodating and quick to fix any dramas that started at a huge wait for lunch and the pressure was certainly on as half of his staff on New Years Day decided not to show up. Brad...

We stayed three days on oyster island and had a great time. There are a few snorkelling and swimming beaches tucked away but within walking distance and you might have it for yourself. The bungalow was nice, clean and absolute beach front. The management was very helpful organising trips. Great stay overall.

Beautiful island for you to explore - Thank you for your review of Oyster Island. Indeed it is a special place and it is great to hear that you took the time to explore the 75a of Oyster Island, the secluded beaches and snorkelling area's. It is always possible to walk through the nature gates, and find a 'secret' spot... More

This was our first trip Vanuatu late in November, and were unsure of the selection we had made for our first of 3 islands. We were collected from the airport, kindly taken to town to pick up a Sim card and then the drive past coconut plantations, glimpses of pristine streams, villages and of course the sea. We arrived at... More

Oyster Island is a charming holiday resort just off the east coast of Santo. You really have the best of both worlds here: your own private tropical island, yet still only a few hundred metres across the water to get back to the mainland allowing you the opportunity to see some the spectacular natural beauty of Santo. The resort itself... More

Idyllic tropical island hideaway - Thank you for your notes regarding your stay on Oyster Island. We (management and staff) really enjoyed your families enthusiasm, early morning smiles and good old humble chat. It is encouraging to see that not only you got to spend time and enjoy the beauty of Oyster Island, but also immersed yourselves in culture and... More

Wonderful, smiling, calm, helpful staff here who are able to give good touring advice. The island resort is accessible by a small punt that carries you back and forth (about 4 minutes trip) whenever you summon it with a bell. Choose carefully where you swim on this small island. Some swimming spots around the island have coral floor while others... More

We stayed at Oyster Island for just under a week after a recommendation from a friend and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful resort, very friendly people, plenty to do on the island but also close to a lot of wonderful places in Santo. There were four of us travelling aged from 4 years to 60+ and there was something for each... More

The island has a great location, just a minute away from the coast by boat. The resort is basic but beautiful. We have booked a Frangipani bungalow: definitely lovely, although small and after a couple of days we were missing at least one or two more shelves. But overall for us the space wasn't a problem. The island has a... More

I have just returned from two seeks in Espiritu Santo and I'm finding it hard to come back down to the harsh reality of suburbia. While there, I paddled m SUP across to Oyster for dinner and on another occasion, to indulge in the Sunday buffer, which is legendary. I noticed that some new family bungalows have been completed and... More

We attended my brother's wedding at the Oyster Island Resort. Nothing was too much trouble for the managers, David and Ollie, and the staff were amazing. The chef was so good that we returned kilos heavier. The outdoor dining area was close to our waterfront bungalow and the staff were happy for us to take our meals to our accommodation... More
