Close enough to Port Vila, but far enough away to always feel on holidays !
Bukura is along Devil’s Point Road, 7 kms from the village of Mele and 20 km from the township of Port Vila.
Our position gives an easy access to numerous great activities in and around Mele Bay.

Waves on Bukura is owned and operated by John and Jeanette Chaniel –
with 20 years of residence in Vanuatu, we have extensive and valuable local knowledge.
John and Jeanette speak fluent English and French.

With only three bungalows, Waves on Bukura is the smallest resort in Vanuatu, situated on a private beach
in Mele Bay.
If you are looking for privacy, a quiet time and personalized service, this is the place to be !

Our bungalows, Turtle, Seahorse and Cuttlefish are set in tropical gardens overlooking our white sand Beach.
The flexible layouts ensure your group’s comfort for your holiday.
Cuttlefish Bungalow is generally available only in conjunction with the use of one of the larger bungalows,
to fit the kids or accommodate a group.
