If you were around to like Thailand 40 years ago well you will really appreciate this place. Sensational beaches with water the color of Bombay Gin. Top spot to have a couple also :) A must if you visit Espiritu Santo

Perfect tropical beach with white talcum powder sand and palm trees. Great meal at the local restaurant that’s right on the beach. Must check this place out if you never been, as this is our third visit and always magnificent every time we come.

Excellent beach and surrounded by 3 islands. Brilliant white sand and just as good, if not better than Champagne Beach. It cost nothing to go there too!!

Soft sand, azure waters, friendly people. It was overcast when we visited, so the photos don't really do it justice.
