“Nice but have seen better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

This is a lovely spot with decent coral however I have already seen several better spots for snorkelling in Vanuatu. The water is fairly murky and the fish whilst beautiful are not as plentiful as in other locales.

“Hideaway Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

A wonderful day excursion from our resort to Hideaway Island. Snorkeling was great, water was beautiful. Glass water boat was enjoyable tho did not need to be quite as long...lovely lazy way to spend a Vanuatu Day. Food was good and nice cocktails!

AWESOME snorkel and dive site. Very friendly staff. The 'postbox' was a nice easy swim to get to, although you can buy cheaper underwater postcards from the post office in Port Vila.

“Good snorkelling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

The boat ride out to the island wasn't the best and it was a bit rough on the day that we went. We had to pay around $10 each to get onto the island. The snorkelling was really amazing. Had lunch and it was around $15 a meal. Overall a good way to spend an afternoon
