You needn't pay a lot for a day trip from the cruise ships which anchor in Port Vila.
There are dozens of taxi drivers clamoring for your custom.
I only wanted a trip to Hideaway Island to go snorkelling. The fare quoted started at $80 to take me, wait until I finished, and returned. When I said "too expensive", this was reduced to $60, and after I stated that I only wanted to be dropped off at the pier to catch the ferry, the fare was subsequently reduced to $10 each way.
The short ferry trip to the island is free, but you have to pay $10 on arrival at the resort.
The changing facilities are limited and not that clean, but adequqate.
Walking on the coral beach can be painful, so take slip on shoes.
The coral isn't very colourful, but there are masses of fish of all colours.
A pleasant relaxing day.
