My wife and I, being keen snorkelers, search for holiday destinations where the coral is not only good but easily accessible. We’ve encountered a few places where “right off the beach” should have been appended with “after a 10-minute swim”. Bokissa is genuinely right off the beach, and the reef (well maintained by the resort) teems with marine life. We...

We spent 6 days in this paradise Bokissa is everything you want in a holiday! Beach front vares set in lush tropical surrounds with rainforests to explore - just beautiful! We found the snorkelling some of the best in Vanuatu with numerous types of coloured fish and corals. Our room was neat and clean and more than adequate but was...

Dive the Henry Bonneaud at night, turn off the torches and wait for the most amazing light show courtesy of small luminescent fish. Mind your dive time though, you are at 41m. Professional and friendly dive staff ensured a great time, some of the best encountered in 18 years dive tourism. No probs with resort, rooms serviced daily, great meals...

Bokissa is great for a really chilled holiday. I spent the week poolside relaxing, I read two books, swam, snorkelled and enjoyed a delicious cocktail or two every night at happy hour. It is a remote island, there are tours off the island, but you need to enquire about them on check-in. The accomodation is basic, and in need of...

We stayed for a 6 night package right at the start of February this year, as a pre-birth final holiday (before life changes forever!). Sue and Pete, the new managers, were charming and accommodating and the staff on the island are friendly and sweet. Food was delish, with a continental breakfast of fresh fruit, cereals and island made bread and...

Easy flight from Brisbane into Santo airport and quick transfer to the island. All meals included, friendly staff and awesome diving & snorkelling. They have their own diving wreck and easy access to the US President Coolidge, a must for any wreck diver. If not into water sorts. lots of other activities to do.

An amazing beachfront room, that needed some care. That said, the location was unparalleled. Snorkelling off the beach was excellent - these were some of the best reefs we saw around Vanuatu. The staff were all very friendly. The walking track around the island is great for seeing flying foxes. It's also good for the 'off the grid' feeling -...
