Aniwa Ocean View Bungalow
Aniwa Ocean View Bungalows are proud to welcome you to their locally owned and operated accommodation in Aniwa Island, Tafea province, Vanuatu. Being a calm and peaceful location where there aren’t any noises from machineries in the remote island, our bungalows are built on the edge of the hill and wire by solar lights where the ocean breeze blows gently to your door. In addition, all bungalows face extensive panoramic views of the ocean and kilometres of pristine coral reef 110 metres from the bungalows.
Advantages of Aniwa Ocean View Bungalow are that you can walk down to the beautiful coral reefs, white sun beaches, and you can observe the scenic view of the southern ocean and glow sky by natural fireworks of the Yasur volcano in Tanna. Aniwa Ocean View Bungalow is also truly a snorkeler’s paradise. Furthermore, from Aniwa Ocean View Bungalows, you can see dolphins, turtles and whales. Coconut crabs are Aniwa’s non–venomous reptiles can be observed at night by walking into protected rainforest and caves.
Walking, swimming, norkelling and long beach walks on a secluded lagoon are a feature of your stay on Aniwa - guides are available to point out plants, shells and fish indigenous to the island. They will also take you to the newly created Turtle Sanctuary. Swimming is safe for all ages in the lagoon which is not deep even at high tide. Since November 2007, netting and spearing of fish and turtles in the lagoon has been made taboo by the local village. It is no surprise then that there are many varied species returning there and it is now fast becoming a nursery to dozens of fish and turtle species. Outside the lagoon, the open waters are host to beautiful coral reefs. This is where guides on outrigger canoes will accompany you to view the vast reefs and many fish species.
From November to April each year you can witness Green and Hawk Nosed turtles laying eggs on the white sand beaches of the lagoon - guides are available on request to assist locating them. Coconut crabs also inhabit the west shoreline of the lagoon and again, guides will again assist you in hunting them down for a photograph or two.
