Vanuatu Breakas Beach Resort

Updated: July 19, 2018

Breakas Beach Resort – Party-vibe and perfect beach, but adults only.

Instantly likeable and welcoming, Breakas is the consummate tropical packaged-tour delight – but strictly child-free. Fronting a breezy bay of breakers (waves), the exquisite farés (bungalows) with thatched conical roofs and dark-wooden shutters are separate, secluded and accessible along a sandy path. Most are hidden behind dense pepper and pandanus trees, while a lucky few directly face the scenic cove. All contain an extra single bed, sizable balcony and enchanting bathroom made of stones. But note: the farés only have overhead fans (i.e. no air-conditioning). The broad beach is snow-white, the waters are calm, and the Infinity-style pool sparkles, but is always busy.

Breakas Beach Resort – The Basics

  • Location: On the main road at Pango village through Pango Peninsula, on the main island of Efate. About 10 minutes from downtown Port Vila by minibus, and another 10 minutes from the airport.
  • Guests: A definite young-person vibe, so perhaps not ideal for older guests. And this is adults only, with children not welcome.
  • Beach: Long, wide and white, with calm waters perfect for swimming and kayaking.
  • Views: About one quarter of the bungalows directly face the beach, but most overlook the gardens.
  • Wi-Fi Internet: Available for free throughout the hotel.
  • Parking: Enough free and secure parking spots at the entrance.

  • Restaurant: Spread alongside the pool and extending to the beach with tables on the sand, the Breakas Bar & Restaurant has a lovable tropical ambience and imaginative menu with Pacific flavours.
