Delicious BBQ buffet held on Sundays was an absolute treat dining seaside with some delicious food and even some live entertainment (Dave & the dugongs were 10/10). Lovely beach and definitely worth the visit!

Oyster Island Resort Restaurant - 100% waterfront, set overlooking the tranquil waters of Peterson Bay, Oyster Island is elegant yet casual, serving only 100% Organic Fresh Island Grown and Market Fresh Produce, Sustainable locally caught seafood, and the famous Organic Santo Beef. Weather its a romantic 3 course wine matched special occasion, or a sand between your toes casual lunch, Oyster Island caters to all. Our Sunday BBQ Lunch Buffet is legendary - featuring local live music, and too many dishes to mention. Reservations essential. Drive north on the east coast road until you come to the sign, drive through the village to the 'landing'. Bang the tank to let our boat crew know you need a pick up, and sit back, enjoy the waterfront view, sip a cocktail and let the Oyster Island staff pamper you with the Ni-Vanuatu smiles and hospitality that this country is renown for.
