    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The local shop is really just a stall, very native with the homemade bags and clothes- sarong, dresses, etc..hanging by the branches of trees! There are no modern clothes hangers here, no fitting rooms, etc..The atmosphere is truly tropical so if you like something and needs to try a dress for instance, just use your towel or improvise, ask someone ( a relative for instance) to cover you up and then you do what you gotta do! Make sure you don't pay the first price quoted you as you can still haggle, no matter what, expecially if you're buying several items!

    So the order of the day is flexibility when you are in the islands! Even when Mother Nature calls, my boys just hide among the bushes or better still, plunge yourself in the water and you're done,LOL! ( Make sure it is just one's ok? Shhhhhh!!!

    What to buy: Colourful islander dresses are very comfy and cool to wear in the stinking Vanuatu heat so I bought a couple for me and my relatives! The handmade cloth bags are also great for shopping- at $3-5 each, they are a steal!

    What to pay: Expect from $3- 5 for clothes and bags, probably the same for little purses and keycains. I also got surf wallets for my boys at $5 each, bargain! They are brightly embroidered with tropical landscape, fantastic!

    Shopping by the beach is always fun!
