Book your tropical vacation getaway or event at Bokissa Island Resort, on one of Vanuatu’s small private islands. Then relax and enjoy the diverse activities in this South Pacific retreat.

Snorkel gear is included in your accommodations package. Underwater, see manatee-like dugongs and reef sharks, go on a turtle dive and float around while gazing through the incredibly clear water at 100-year-old coral and colorful tropical fish. Take scuba training at the Dive Academy from PADI-certified instructors. Arrange a deeper dive at the SS President Coolidge, a luxury liner that sank while serving as a troop ship during World War II, or at the Henry Bonneaud in 100 to 130 feet (30 to 40 meters) of clear water near the Bokissa wharf.

Have the resort arrange a fishing outing. You can expect to catch tuna, mackerel, wahoo, mahi mahi, sailfish or marlin in the deep waters away from shore. Kayak around the island, viewing deserted beaches and thick jungle. Join an outing to nearby Espiritu Santo to snorkel in a blue hole or paddle up the Malo River.

On the shore, sunbathe on soft white sands, relax at the pool, doze in a swaying hammock or have a massage under the palm trees while you listen to the gentle ocean waves. Trek into the 175 acres (70 hectares) of rainforest on a nighttime tour to see endangered coconut crabs climbing trees. These fascinating creatures can grow to over 3 feet (1 meter) wide. Look for wild orchids, exotic birds and island wildlife.

The resort’s restaurant offers meals of fresh seafood, local island produce and beef raised on Espiritu Santo. This service, including afternoon tea, is part of your accommodations package. Relax with cocktails or kava.

When you book your stay, provide flight information for the resort to arrange pickup from Santo-Pekoa International Airport on Espiritu Santo and transportation to the island. Make Bokissa Island Resort your choice for a very relaxing vacation in the beautiful South Pacific Vanuatu islands.

Stunningly beautiful small and private resort

"We stayed for 5 nights, which I think was about perfect - enough time to relax but not so long that we were bored on such a small island. The reef was beautiful and had lots of different corals, along with loads of fish. We don't dive so we snorkelled each day. We took our own masks but used Bokissa's ..."…"
