The Vanuatu Beachfront Apartments is where you want to stay if your aim is to rest up and recover in what is close to paradise. Ten minutes from Port Villa (which I would get out of as soon as possible), this little spot is a gem.
Only recently opened its right on the beach front, its simple, modern and clean accommodation. We had a great front room overlooking the pool, the beach and bay. We could walk out of the room straight on to a deck. That is where we spent many an hour just sitting around, reading, writing and talking and watching the yachts passing by.
You can eat at the bar, or walk up the beach 5 minutes to another café- bar for a meal or drink. There are plenty of restaurants in Port Villa, but I would certainly take advise from the locals about where to go and out to get there. Getting around is best done by car or bus that can be easily organised through the (VBA).
A young Australian couple manage the Apartments and they are very friendly, good fun and genuinely nice people. They have two children who are a delight and the family is intimately connected with the local community. If you have children of your own this is the place to go, the locals adore them, its very safe and there are heaps of fun things for young children to do (eg net fishing in the shallow waters with the locals, petting friendly lizards, playing with local children, swings, bikes you name it).
There are plenty of adventures for all, from gentle shell collecting walks along the beach, ventures up into the estuary, visits the local waterfall, or the local community. Canoes are available for the more energetic visitor enticed by the idea of a paddle around the bay, down the beach are ski hires for those wanting speed and to make a noise. There is also the option of hiring a car for the day and driving around the island.
Its also a 15 minute drive from the airport and you can get to Vanuatu on direct flights from most major cities in Australia.
