Looking to leave the poolside of your Port Vila accommodation and explore a little? The Vanuatu Islands’ raw natural landscape is one of its biggest draws, and the Mele Cascades are a great example. This series of waterfalls is a fun trip for the whole family—climb up, slide down and go for a swim in the aquamarine pools. You won’t even have to leave behind your tropical beverages if you take a guided tour.
You can stay close to home and learn to play the bamboo flute with accommodation near the Port Vila National Museum. Take a tour of history with traditional masks and 3,000-year-old fossils and artefacts, then see demonstrations of traditional customs like sand-drawing and kastom dancing. You’ll feel smarter and impress your friends with your newfound slit gong expertise.
There are many direct flights from Australia to Bauerfield International Airport (VLI) in Port Vila, which is just 6 km from the city centre. While the island’s rugged character lends to its charm, it also means there is not much public transportation. Arrange an airport transfer through your accommodation in Port Vila; or, roll the dice with the island’s unmetered taxis. Once you’re all settled in, you can rent a scooter or grab one of Wotif’s car hire deals if you want to explore.
