Life on Aore is laid back and if you'd prefer to make your own way there, it's a great opportunity to meet the locals and get to know about their livelihoods, culture and way of life. The people are friendly, hospitable and will be happy to share you their knowledge of Aore traditions and culture around fishing custom stories, the caves and also alittle bit on the influence of religion on the island. 

The Seventh-day Adventist Church has been active on Aore Island since the early 20th century and operates a co-educational boarding secondary school, Aore Adventist Academy located on the mid-south coast of the island. Youth With A Mission is a Christian organization (known commonly as YWAM) which runs a school for youth to be involved in Disciple Training Schools (DTS) or further training. A DTS runs for about 6 months. The first half is training and involves life changing teaching from teachers around the world. The second half is outreach, so the students will leave Aore Island for another destination in the world and share their faith in God. The base is found on the south west side of Aore Island.
