Imagine a cute, self-contained cottage, within a stone's throw of a little private beach, overlooking a protected turquoise lagoon, an ancient tamanu tree & a huge overwater deck and hammock. Welcome to Dugong Cottage! You're surrounded by swaying palm trees, tropical islands, colourful fringing reef, turtles, dugongs & spectacular blue holes. Wow!

Welcome to Espiritu Santo, largest island in Vanuatu (approx. 180km NW of Port Vila). If you're after the road less travelled this is it!

Extremely nice location with everything you need to enjoy Santo. Both Alex and Willie is very helpful and friendly, and will see to your needs. We particularly enjoyed the kayaks and snorkel gear that is available! It is a little drive into to town to get supplies, but the lodge …

Turtle Bay Beach House was such a relaxing space that we really could call our own. With 3 separate bungalow/houses all equipped with basic cooking facilities that made it easy to make every meal for ourselves and access to a calm tidal lagoon with kyaks and other equipment that …

Two of us really enjoyed a relaxing stay in this wonderful location. Accommodation was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and well kitted out for self-catering. Having the kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and snorkelling gear so easily accessible was great. Willie was endlessly help…

Thank you Taylor for the great review. Just wanted to clarify that you probably meant to say Turtle Bay Beach House, rather than Turtle Lodge (as that is a separate resort located just up the road from us!). We are glad you enjoyed your stay!

You couldn't find a better positioned spot! The cottage is beautifully setup with everything you need. Bed is king sized comfort! The beautiful sheltered bay out the front is perfect for kayaks and stand up boards. There is a road close by, but at the moment it is mostly very qui…

Thank you for the great review, Turtle Bay is a beautiful spot. We are currently looking at ways of further screening off Dugong Cottage from the main house using plants and bamboo to provide a little more privacy - most of the time our guests respect each other's privacy and have a great time interacting with each other, swapping stories and trading information on what to see and do! We are also currently growing a beautiful hibiscus hedge along the road side of the fence that will eventually thicken up and help reduce the small amount of road noise that occurs for a small time in the morning and afternoon :)

I discovered Vanuatu several years ago and fell in love with Santo. It's an outdoor adventurer's paradise, and being a professional kayak guide, freelance journalist and ex-resort owner this place is the ultimate tropical island playground. I know you'll fall in love with Santo j…
