There is an left hand peak right out in front of the resort and the islands most known break – Pango Point – just off to the right. Pango Point is a right hand reef/point break which can be surfed nearly all tides depending on size. There are several other breaks in this area- most of them reef breaks but there are some nice beach breaks at Teouma Bay.
The best swell direction is South/South West (from lows that come up the Tasman Sea), although New Caledonia and New Zealand a lot of these. However, swells that pass under NZ and pump South East swells are quite consistent and powerful (3-5ft+) during the winter months. Unfortunately, with these swells come the South East trade winds (April/May – Dec), so the best bet is to surf early in the morning before they come up. There are, however, breaks in this area and on the other side of the island which are offshore in these winds.
Set back just off the beach in the sand and beneath the palms are these stand-alone Fares salute the tropical climate with cross-ventilation timber louvers, open air coral bathrooms and a traditional natangora ceiling to protect one from the elements. They believe in a “feet in the sand” holiday and celebrate the art of tropical living, relaxation and pleasure.
The resort offers two types of accommodation; The Tropical Garden Fare, set amongst a tropical garden, our garden farés were awarded for their distinctive tropical design that incorporates traditional Pacifica design elements including natagura roof, open-air coral bathrooms and local timber shutters. For those looking for romance and escapism these popular one-bedroom fares embody the perfect private haven.
The second is their Beachfront Fares; Positioned directly on the beach, your perfect view of the ocean each morning ensures you start the day believing that all is good in the world. A gentle lapping of turquoise waters only meters away from you lulls you into sweet slumber after a full day exploring Vanuatu.
With the magnificent panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, their restaurant sits on the edge of the sea- It doesn’t get much better than this. The à la carte restaurant provides an extraordinary setting for a beach side dining experience experience.
Their “Salt Bar” offers a fabulously long cocktail list and a selection of tapas and olives to set your senses on fire. Work your way through their wine list which supports some very worthy Australian, New Zealand and French Wines. Holiday- makers wind their way towards the Salt Bar, from a day of surfing, swimming and snorkeling. “Lobster or beef? An icy cold beer or French Champagne?” These are the questions one must ask while contemplating an idle afternoon lounging on daybeds and lazy hammocks. Life is hard in the tropics.
Aside from getting barreled in “Ni-van” tropical waves, there are a number of other island activities to enjoy.
The town markets are always a treat to explore or perhaps venturing further out of town to Treasure Island and snorkel the reefs in the ocean reserve. Island tours, scuba diving and another option well worth considering is a side trip for a few days down to Tanna Island. Apart from some seriously uncrowded waves down there (beachies, reefs and point breaks), you have the opportunity to take a day trip up to the crater rim of Mt Yassur. This is one of the very few active volcano’s in the world where you can stand on the crater rim and see lava blown out. A real trip to get the heart racing!
