the ideal picturesque island getaway



AORE ISLAND, Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu

Two Canoes Island Getaway is a quiet hidden gem nestled on a private white sandy beach on Aore Island that has been designed for couples and small groups who want to get away from it all.

With only three stand alone beachfront cabins (serviced daily), a private beach bar and restaurant (for in-house guests only), cooks, three service staff, and a personal boat driver for easy town transfers to connect you to your tours, Two Canoes is the ideal island getaway. 

Rest, restore and revive yourself while swimming in the clear coral reefs located on our waters edge, dive world class wrecks, sports fish or trek through the rainforest. You can do as little or as much as you feel on each particular day.

Come for adventure, romance or personal retreat. 

Just two and a half hours by air from Australia, Two Canoes, Vanuatu's newest private guest house that caters for no more than 8 guests at any one time, frames the stunning blue waters of Aimbuei Bay on Aore Island, just off Espiritu Santo.

Two Canoes is easy to get to and very hard to leave.
