Wait for low tide and witness the coral reef expose itself, allowing you to explore the rock pools and crevices; Make use of the complimentary mountain bikes at the resort and ride through intriguing beaches and villages, or ask the friendly reception staff for a map; Join a local guide for a Green Sea Turtle Tour in the outer reef where you can discover green sea turtles swimming in their natural environment; Borrow some gear from the resort and choose one of the great snorkelling locations around the resort – the reef, Blue Hole 1 or 2, or the Piccanini Hole – for a unique snorkelling experience; Join one of the many day tours departing from the resort and explore volcanoes, caves, waterfalls and more!

The White Grass Ocean Resort is fantastic. The snorkelling was beautiful and easily accessible, no extra paid trip necessary. The trip to see the Mt Yasur volcano was amazing. The staff were friendly and very professional; the room was clean and tidy and the restaurant served excellent food. Our only complaint was that We didn’t stay long enough. We definitely plan to go back!
