About the neighbourhood
Eton has Vanuatu's best white sandy beaches. Papaya Villa is right on the beach located amongst the old copra plantations on the south eastern coast of Efate. Just 5 minutes from the famous Blue Lagoon. White crushed coral road approaches the villa through the copra plantation and its tall palms and manicured lawns to the beach.
Getting around
You have two options, you can hire a car so that you can explore the island. We will even fix you a hamper if you like, or, you can hire our driver for the day to take you wherever you would like to go. This is a relaxing option.
Car advised
How to get there
We will arrange to collect you and return you to the airport for a small fee, although we do recommend that you hire a car if you want to explore the island.

If driving head out to Eton and you will see the timber gates to Eton Reef. Go through the gates and you will see Papaya Villa on the beach
