Malvanua Island, 192 Luganville, Vanuatu
January 29, 2015
눇If you're looking for somewhere to get away from it all, to relax, unwind, sway in a hammock & swim, this is the place! Peaceful, private & secluded, there was nothing better than waking up & going for a swim literally a few steps away. The owners Marianne & Torqui were really, really lovely. They live over on the other side & couldn't have done anything more to make us feel at home - stocking a few supplies for us as we arrived in the evening, and Marianne baked us the most delicious bread! Torq took us into town the next day for food shopping and even then offered to go for us if we wanted to just give him a list & stay on the island. We went to relax, but there were plenty of activities for us. We went on a horse ride which Marianne organised & Torq transported us to & other tours were available if we wanted. The island has free use of kayaks which enabled us to explore nearby areas including the famous 'Blue Hole'. Although it was a hard task to get to as we were kayaking against the tide, was well worth it when we finally arrived! We were also lucky enough that Marianne and Torq showed us baby turtles that had just hatched and we watched in awe as they made their way to the sea to start their life adventures. As it was Malvanua's first ever turtle hatching it was pretty special to have been a part of it. On the rainy day we stayed in and watched movies, played scrabble & read books so even that was relaxing. The house was new, clean, surrounded with fly screen & had all cooking equipment that was needed. Beautiful outdoor table (i think Torq had made himself!) on the deck which was perfect to watch the sunset. One day we went for lunch at the nearby Oyster Island so there are options too if you dont want to cook every time. We had such an amazing 5 days. I really could keep raving on about how fantastic Malvanua is and the hospitality of Marianne and Torquil. I hope to be back again.
