In the South Pacific, there is a port town full of lush jungles, tropical marine life and even an underwater Post Office. The Republic of Vanuatu lies in the South Pacific Ocean, just a short flight from Australia and New Zealand. Most visitors to Vanuatu arrive at the nation’s capital, Port Vila, situated on the main island of Efate. Port Vila sits at the edge of a magnificent natural harbour filled with corals and sea life.
Things To Do
- After exploring mainland Santo, visit the islands off its southern coast, such as Aore Island, Bokissa Island and Malo Island.
- Just a 45-minute flight south from Port Vila, Tanna Island is fringed with beaches ranging from pure white to black volcanic sands. Many of the hillside villages on Tanna remain largely unaffected by the trappings of the modern world.
- Visit Mt. Yasur, one of the world’s most active and accessible volcanoes.
