We visited the reef zoological centre with our 10 and 8 year old boys. We all enjoyed the interaction with the turtles of varying ages plus the lizards, coconut crabs and fish. The centre aims to educate locals and visitors and raise awareness for conservation...More

It was an interesting visit. You can learn about the turtles and see the wee ones. There are two very old turtles and you can swim with them.

Nice little spot to idle on the nature side of Vanuatu. Baby turtles are a hoot and very friendly but pick them up the wrong way and you may get nipped. Guides there walk you thru the lot. Worth a visit.
