    Pocket Guide: Vanuatu

    There’s more to Vanuatu than meets the eye. On the surface, it’s a holiday fantasy come to life: turquoise ocean, white sand, bungalows over the water. If you just want to relax on the beach, you can do that here. But dive a little deeper – and in Vanuatu, there’s plenty of awesome diving – and you’ll also find some unique and surprising sights that make this place more than a typical summer holiday: a shipwreck, an underwater post office, an active volcano. With friendly locals, amazing scenery and activities that range from shopping to adventure, why wouldn’t you visit Vanuatu? Book your Vanuatu hotel with us now and prepare for a South Pacific escape with a difference.

    A cluster of 83 islands, Vanuatu is located in the Pacific Ocean’s ‘Ring of Fire’ where two of the earth’s tectonic plates bump into each other. As a result, Vanuatu has some pretty cool volcanoes that you can see when you visit. The most famous (and the easiest to get to) is Yasur Volcano on Tanna Island. Nicknamed ‘the Lighthouse of the Pacific’ for its constant glow, it spews out lava in a series of low-level eruptions small enough that you can still get close to the volcano’s edge. This is one of the best places in the world to see the awesome power of nature up close.

    If climbing an active volcano is a little extreme for you, there are other ways to experience the beauty of Vanuatu. Lay back on the beach or go for a swim or snorkel. If you’re in the mood for a bit of adventure under the sea, dive to the wreck of the SS President Coolidge, one of the world’s most accessible shipwrecks. Explore the ghostly wreckage and come across old military equipment now overgrown with coral, as well as plenty of fish. And a shipwreck isn’t the only curiosity you’ll find in Vanuatu’s waters. Just off Hideaway Island, a post office three metres below the water is staffed by dive-accredited postal workers so you can scuba on down with a waterproof postcard they stamp and then send abroad.

    It doesn’t stop there. There really is so much to do in Vanuatu! Take a cultural tour of a traditional village to see authentic local dances and a simpler way of living. Get an adrenaline rush on Pentecost Island as you watch ‘land diving’, where locals jump from man-made towers with nothing but vines tied around their ankles. Thrillseekers can fulfil their appetite for action by abseiling down one of Vanuatu’s amazing waterfalls.

    Port Vila on the island of Efate is Vanuatu’s capital. Set on a beautiful harbour, it’s Vanuatu’s main tourist spot with cafes, restaurants and a main street lined with duty-free shops. It’s also the place to be if you want to experience some local nightlife when the sun goes down. For a taste of traditional Vanuatu cuisine, stop by the open-air markets and pick up something from the food stalls. Ready to go? Wait a second – you’re going to need some flights to Vanuatu as well. For a holiday that’s hotter than lava, choose your Vanuatu accommodation with us.
