We stayed here 6 nights recently and loved every meal we received. The chef even cooked up a coral trout we caught from the kayak on very short notice. The quality of the meals were fantastic however because the restaurant is staffed by the tourism school nearby, sometimes small mistakes are made, like giving the wrong table your meal HAHA....

Stayed at Lonnoc Beach Lodge and came here for lunch. Friendly staff, good food. Nice place to have a cold beer and enjoy the scenerty and let the kids play in the crystal clear water.

Not much on the menu for veggieheads but there's v little around Lonnoc / Champagne Beach so we sort of had to go here for food (or spend another hour searching!). It's right on the beach and 5mins from Champagne beach (down a long & bumpy track but good fun on a quadbike). We ordered a rather bland veggie wrap... More

Ate here pretty much the entire 5 night stay and loved it. The breakfast is your typical bread, fruit, and coffee. Solid, but nothing special. They excel in their dinner menus. Their soups and fish were excellent!!

Lonnoc means "white sand" in the local language and it's a lovely beach with basic accommodation. The snorkeling was great too once we swam out far enough. Fortunately they provided mosquito nets on the beds and mosquito coils in each room. Be sure to negotiate the price for your transport BEFORE you get in the taxi. Daniel our driver was... More

Expensive considering the extremely slow service, even by Island time. Once food arrived it was very tasty. While associated accommodation is very, very poor nightly rates are extremely high.

We hired a car and drove up to Lonnoc and Champagne Beach on day. We stopped at Lonnoc Beach Bungalows for lunch, the Santo Beef Steak was fantastic, had a few tuskers and then swam in this amazing water before heading over to Champagne Beach. Great place to stop.

There didn't seem to be anyone else but my group, so service was good although we did have to sit at outside benches as the "inside was for guests?? only". Magnificent beach, perhaps worth looking at but a long way from town.
