Kwakea is one of Vanuatu’s only privately owned Islands which offers a unique, cultural experience. With your own local, private staff, guests are able to truly immerse themselves in the culture and the Vanuatu way of life.
Kwakea Island (approximately 3km long/ 1km wide) has beautiful untouched white sandy beaches, a large lagoon, beautiful coral reef with snorkelling directly off the beach, coconut plantation, seamounts close by and a forest with an abundance of fruit trees, vegetables and native animals.

Owner and Guide
Growing up in Vanuatu, Brett speaks the local language (Bislama) as well as French, knows the local culture and customs very well and is proud to officially now be a Ni-Vanuatu Citizen. Kwakea Island has been a second home for the Kerr Family for over a decade and is much more than a holiday location, it’s a way of life.
Working as a commercial pilot through the Vanuatu Islands for many years, Brett’s knowledge of the islands is second to none. Now flying Australian Domestic Routes on a part-time basis, Brett spends the majority of his time at Kwakea Island and feels very strongly about sharing this part of the world with like-minded people. Brett’s love of spearfishing, the ocean and all things this island offers has lead him to create Kwakea Island Adventures. Brett views spearfishing as one of the most sustainable forms of fishing and works with the neighbouring island villages to protect and maintain the reefs around Kwakea.
The Kwakea Island crew will take care of everything from cooking of delicious food, to housekeeping, ground maintainence, boat handling, laundry and collecting of drinking coconuts.
Your private host Brett and the crew will make your Kwakea Island Adventure an unforgettable experience.
