Hideaway Island tour
For those who enjoy exploring, Worawia and Hideaway Cove Beaches,
with their uncrowded, grey volcanic sand, are just a few minutes stroll away. Whether it's quiet beach walk you
prefer, or swimming and diving, or other holiday activities, there'll be something for you.
Hideaway island in particular is popular with snorkelers and home to
the world's only underwater post office. You can visit Hideaway independently, or in an organized tour. Bring
your own snorkeling gear, or hire one on the island.

Bay, is Hideaway Island Resort,

waterfall is right in the neighbourhood and is also easily accessible by vehicle or a healthy walk, for a
day filled with swimming, walking and exploring activities. Two-hour and daily Cascade tours are available from
Evergreen Tours and can be also purchased at Worawia's reception. Bus pick up and drop off are usually included
in the tour prices.
Port Vila holiday activities
If you like a lot of holiday activities, then head to Port Vila. The
market in downtown Port Vila, selling everything from fresh fish to hand-crafts, is well worth a visit. There
are of course duty free stores in town, Vanuatu tours and cruises shops and several supermarkets.
Groceries' prices are comparable to those in Australia and New Zealand, where most of the supplies come from.
There are also groceries imported from France that can be found at Port
Vila supermarkets. Besides English language, many locals also speak French.
Port Vila has many different restaurants and bars, some with
hillviews, others on the waterfront. You can choose from medium priced family restaurants, to the more upmarket
ones; from steak and barbecue, to Chinese and French.
The large number of restaurants
in Port Vila is almost too numerous to mention all here. Almost every
restaurant in the city has received glowing reviews and offers great service. In fact, the entire city seems to
be service-driven, with the pleasure of guests as their primary focus. It's no wonder that Port Vila is known by
its culinary excellence in the South Pacific.

Port Vila Golf course
And if you like to hit a small white ball around while you
walk, Port Vila Golf and Country
Club is right next door to Worawia, with its 18-hole seaside golf
course. Available to both beginners and professionals, men and women.
This is where the Vanuatu Open golf competition is held every year.
It's an annual event that attracts pro and amateur golfers from Australia, New Zealand, Solomon Islands, and
Fiji. After golfing head to the clubhouse for some relaxation. The spacious terrace offers views of the course
and Mele Bay and is an ideal location from which to enjoy a quiet drink with friends.
So if you're golfer and require accommodation next to a golf course,
then Worawia resort is your place.
