Aquana Beach Resort
Amongst lush tropical rainforest, sandy white beaches and a large aqua lagoon, Aquana Beach Resort captures the true essence of Vanuatu and its people. Aquana has plenty of activities to keep you entertained at the resort and the wonderful team of nannies are on hand for families to take the change to truly relax.

Swing with “Tarzan Rope” enjoy splashing in water? Yes you can, in this natural blue swimming pool. You will be amazed as you discover this small paradise. It a great spot, away from the town, where you can take your family, as it accessible place to swim, for all ages.
The waterfall at Rarru Rentapao has been open to the public since June 2016 and I am very glad they are now sharing this natural delight. Rentapao is around 15 minutes east of Port Vila, on the way to Eton and the Blue Lagoon. The Rentapao River flows freely even in the dry season, making these falls a sure bet all year round when other waterfalls stop running altogether. Shady pools and cascading waterfalls invite you to jump in -I dare you to resist! The main waterfall is around 150m from the carpark area. The stroll along the riverside is easy and beautiful. Jump (carefully) from the top, swing from the rope swing or gently float around with the kids. Floating rings and kayaks are also available. A must see for families of all ages and sizes. A small kiosk onsite sells snacks and drinks, and several covered picnic tables line the riverbank so you can stay the whole day if you wish.
Moso Island is an untouched paradise off the North West tip of Efate, about 45 minutes from Port Vila. There are several tours and trips that will get you to Moso, but this one is totally different. Run by our local host for Watermark on Moso, he has lived on the island his whole life, you really step outside the ‘touristy’ well-trodden path here. He provides day tour for our guests, around the island, where you can snorkell, see turtles and even dungongs and dolphins if you are lucky enough.
Opening Hours: Open daily from 10.00am to 11.00pm
The Reef Vanuatu Zoological
This beautiful and environmentally friendly eco-haven is just 15 minutes east of Port Vila, at Narpow Point. You can get up close and as personal as you like with animals native to Vanuatu. Have you even held an Iguana before? Or touched a baby turtle? Trust me, you haven’t seen cute until you’ve seen a baby turtle – they define the word! The Reef has marine animals such as sting rays, as well as birds of prey and a beautiful coral reef to carefully explore. They even have an animal nursery and their tours are informative and interesting. Combine a visit with a swim at the nearby Rarru Rentapao Waterfall, it’s a perfect day out for young and old alike.
