Nestled on the remote East Coast of Tanna, Vanuatu, Friendly Beach is the paradise destination that your dreams are made of. Luxury eco villas made from sustainable local materials are situated directly (and we mean directly!) on the spectacular volcanic black sand beach of Lowakels Cove.
Whilst staying at Friendly Beach you will find yourself sinking into a state of awe and relaxation that is rare to find in the busy modern world.
Recently rebuilt in 2015, the resort embodies the perfect combination of cultural adventure, eco tourism and luxury. We have made a conscious effort to show off the landscape and awe of Tanna using all local products materials in the production of the resort. Friendly Beach is proud to be a part of the community in Tanna and supports the local neighbouring villages.
The menu at Friendly Beach changes on a daily basis. Our produce is primarily sourced locally meaning that our menu is a gorgeous representation of the seasons in Vanuatu! We have access to a variety of fresh organic vegetables, as well as Vanuatu's famous organic beef. If you are lucky, Tanna is home to ocean lobster! Friendly Beach can happily cater for dietary requirements when we are notified in advance.
