Port Olry

Top choice in Espiritu Santo

At the end of the sealed road you come to Port Olry, a small francophone fishing village with a stunning curve of white-sand beach and eye-watering shallow turquoise waters. Three offshore islands can be reached by kayak (500VT) or outrigger canoe (1000VT), where there's good reef snorkelling. There are a couple of good shack restaurants and bungalow operations here, making it a great place to chill out for a few days.
