Port Olry is on the east coast of Santo about 60 km north of Luganville. There is a small village with a secondary school, health centre, church and store. There are a couple of very basic bungalows right on the sea shore (John 5368307, brick building, inside kitchen, Sylvana 5435656 leaf bungalow as in photo and another one nearer the village) and a newly opened cafe (ring to make sure they are open - Chrisante 5940038).
It is stunningly beautiful and today I could not stop taking photos. Here are a selection.

It has the pleasant combination of a fabulous beach, clear blue water, grassy shore grazed by cattle and a village just behind. Often the men sit under the trees and play cards or occasionally mend a net.
(Since this is a village beach - 500 vatu entrance fee - and not a tourist beach please do not wear bikinis and generally women should wear shorts when swimming)
There is lovely snorkelling on the far side of a small island.
So the panorama which is impossible to really convey in photographs comes next
