hideaway island

Hideaway Island is exactly as the name says... It is a hide away from the rest of Vanuatu.

Only accessible by boat, it is a short 5 minute ride across the water to this isolated marine sanctuary paradise. Hideaway Island has a reputation for being a relaxed paradise for divers and snorkelers alike, where you can stroll down the beach and be Scuba diving or snorkeling in less than 15 minutes. 

All snorkeling and diving equipment can be provided on the island. We have a very experienced dive team with thousands of dives between them, so you are in very good hands regardless of what water activity you undertaking.

One of the star features of this island is of course the world’s first underwater post office. Located just off the shore accessible by both snorkelers and divers, it lies in less than 2m of water where a post man awaits inside to receive your post cards.

Hideaway is most famous for its incredible snorkeling and diving which is located right off the beach. We have more than 18 dive sites all within 10 minutes of the shore and with dives running 3 times a day.

We can accommodate individual divers, to large groups, with enough capacity and variety to keep everyone happy. Hideaway Island is a PADI 5 star resort which teaches courses from beginners all the way through to Dive Master with a large range of specialties including; Night, Wreck, Nitrox, Photography, Deep and many more.  We also instruct Bubble Makers and Seal Team for all the young ones 8 years and over.

If you are already a diver, our experienced and friendly dive team will make sure you see the best of what we have to offer. All the dive sites are teaming with life ranging from sponges and hard corals, to anemones, gorgonian fans, and a vast range of marine fish. There is also a large range of diving and snorkeling on offer from directly off the shore, to boat dives taking you out to steep reef wall drop offs going to over 90 meters, caves formed by lava flows and night dives.

Though we are a marine sanctuary, the marine life here is not fearful of divers or snorkelers so our marine interaction is one of a kind.

So why get away, when you can hide away.
