This is more than simply a beach— it is a highway between coastal communities, a soccer stadium, a playground for kids, an open-air cafe to sip coconuts, a place to gossip with your friends, and a place to scan the sand for a local delicacy: seaweed. The Vila community here revolves around the beach. Though not the whitest sand on the island, it is still a beautiful place to pass the day. Our recommendation? After stuffing yourself with homemade pasta from Manukoko Rek, make the two minute walk down to the beach for sunset to watch the pastel colors illuminate the sky, rub shoulders with the island’s politicians, partake in giggles with local women, and cheer your heart out for your favorite gaggle of local soccer players. An evening spent here will show you what the word community means like you have never experienced before.
