Vanimo’s surf lodge has remained a relative secret, and still today enjoys a low profile as thousands of surfers fly overhead to other locations around the globe overlooking what is basically a wave mecca on Australia’s doorstep. November to April is the best time of the year for surfing. Within easy view from the restaurant deck area is Lido’s right which peels endlessly over a mostly sand covered rock bottom with enticing backdoor sections similar to Australia’s famous Angourie Point.Rights in the morning then if the wind gets up lefts in the afternoon.
Meals at the lodge may be made from locally sourced seafood, meat, chicken, farmed crocodile when available and vegetables so it’s always fresh and cooked in the traditional way for another cultural experience. If you like fruit there is certainly no shortage as the lodge grows its own red paw paws and there is a wide selection of other locally grown fruits including bananas, star fruit, pineapple and even local vanilla beans.
