Discover the Island

Discover the Island

Espiritu Santo offers a unique and genuine Island experience for travellers who want to get off the beaten track.

For many years it was famous for it’s wreck diving on the Coolidge. To this day you can still dive this incredible wreck that caters for both novices and the most experienced divers. However the Island has so much more to offer.

The East coast of Santo is the gateway to some of the most untouched areas of the world. The beaches are empty, pristine white sand meeting the turquoise pacific blue waters. Spend the day lazing by the ocean and enjoying a local seafood lunch at Hideaway, Port Olry or Lonnoc Beach.

If you’re looking for a trekking adventure then look no further than the Millenium Cave or Mount Hope Tour. A day out at the Millenium Cave is a life long experience. It’s an ever changing environment depending on how much rain we have recently had as you traverse through the cave of water by torchlight, float down the river and climb the rope ladders at the other side. Not for the feint hearted.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

Our local staff have a wealth of experience and knowledge that they are eager to share with our guests at Turtle Bay. They love to introduce guests to their tradition of kava; a local drink to share stories at the end of the day with friends. We’ll take you out to the local villages, a real Vanuatu experience.

If you want to explore even further afield, head up inland and pass through untouched local villages towards Big Bay in the North and the village of Matantas. You’ll pass by exquisite rainforest and villages from yesteryear.

At Turtle Bay Lodge we aim to make your stay as memorable as we possibly can. We are a small and independant resort and are flexible in our thinking. Whatever the holiday you’re looking for, we’ll try and guide you to this end.
