When it comes to working those calories off, there’s nothing as relaxing as a leisurely beach walk. Just a few minutes stroll down our beach road and you’ll find yourself on a grey volcanic sand beach, curving along the golf course next door on one side and down to Hideaway Cove on the other side, lined by tropical palms and Banyan trees.

Being usually uncrowded, you will find the beach peaceful and reflective – with a real island feel. It's only a short stroll away from Hideaway Island and its resort.

For something really different, if you want to acquaint yourself with the local culture and village life, you can ask one of resort staff, to take you along on a short Mele village tour, for a modest fee.

The village is a short stroll away from Worawia, where you can see traditional island life of Vanuatu. The tour will take an hour or two, but please respect the village locals as you would respect anyone’s else’s home.
