Enjoyable day out with some great fish and coral. The underwater post office is quite the challenge-Difficult to swim down to. Nice bar and snacks. Toilets and change room available.

Everyone had a wonderful time at Hideaway snorkelling the day away. And even if you don't snorkel, a simple paddle will immerse yourself in the abundant sea life.

Shouldn't cost you more than 1000 Vatu per person one way for a bus or you're definitely paying foreigner prices. It costed me 300 Vatu to get from the middle of port Vila to hideaway via bus.
