1000 Vatu per person to go to the beach on top of your transport to get there. A few tables and a couple of toilets are available for your use but are commonly occupied by tour companies. There was a fair bit of building waste at the main entrance which was a bummer for a paid beach.

If you can, go at high tide for best snorkelling opportunities and head further around than the entry where it starts to look beautiful and more natural. There are a number of nice corals and small fish as well as the "fossil" reef limestone all around. It's sharp so at low tide wear booties if you have them and try to avoid damaging the coral that is left.

Beautiful, great for families, fun, best swimmers spot on this side of island, good snorkeling but better snorkeling on other side of island. We loved it, you pay to use but you get a little hit where you can keep your stuff... take a picnic lunch. Not busy here 😊👍🏾

Just so beautiful, one of the highlights of the holiday. Came across the beach by accident-very protected in a cove-water so clear and calm. So safe. 300 Vatu each but well worth it. About 30 min outside Vila. Shade provided-great for kids and families. A piece of heaven!

Stunning place. Perfect beach for a swim and relax. Entry fee was minimal 500Vt ($8AUD?) Only problem there isn't much shade. The water was amazing - we had the whole beach to ourselves. Just incredible.

It is located 44 min away from Port Vila. It is not worth even if it were at a 5 min distance. Who can say that loves this beach? Only a person who never saw a beach in his life. It has some rustic and horrible huts. They impose a fee to enter the beach!! Kids 250 VAV and Adults I don’t know as it the notice was not readable from where I was. But nobody even tried to charge me.

This is a place that you need low tide, a sunny day and calm waters. Pretty even if you don’t have all 3. But to enjoy a day of swimming and relaxing you definitely need all 3. Only $500 VATU to get in that is for the local villagers. Some Picnic tables there but not much else.

Upon our travels around the island we came across all three of the Eton beaches but by far Eton Beach #1 was our favourite. It had toilets, shelter huts to keep your belongings in while you swam and heaps of parking as well. For the low entry rate of 300 vatu per person it was well worth it. The water was crystal clear and so warm and the sand was white and clean. If you go out a bit further we found that there was wonderful snorkelling and saw some of the best fish and coral on the whole island. We are defiantly planning to come back sometime soon.

Scam beware. Tourist trap. $20 AUD entry per person. To be avoided especially if you don’t want to haggle just to visit a beach.

The attendant doesn’t tell you the price upon entry and tells you to go in only to shock you with a bill for visiting a beach for 5 minutes. Originally they wanted $30 per person too. Had to negotiate down to $20. That was $80 for 4 people.

I understand covid made tourism harder but this was just ridiculously absurd to charge people like this.

Save your money and go to the free beaches all around the place and don’t visit this run down tourist trap that’s full of garbage and graffiti designed for profiteering.

Visited 29 July 2023 and our group left extremely disappointed and scammed.

Nice location with good views. Can swim in ocean & at river outlet. Undercover tables are good for a picnic lunch. Bring your own food & drink. Change room & toilet provided. Not far past Blue Lagoon.

We went and my 2 year old had an amazing time, splashing and playing in the crystal blue water. It is a must see, but you do need to pay to use the beach.
