Visit this South Pacific paradise for a great tropical islands holiday

Vanuatu is a tropical island paradise located in the South Pacific, a couple of hours flight from Australia and New Zealand, close to New Caledonia and Fiji. Meaning "raising land", Vanuatu is an island nation, stringing 83 islands together, with a tropical or a subtropical environment. It's a perfect holiday destination for a relaxing getaway. Visitors to Vanuatu islands can keep busy with a variety of fun and exciting land and water activities.

Town of Port Vila

When you go on a holiday in this exotic South Pacific travel destination, the first place that you will visit is Port Vila, Vanuatu's capital and gateway to the islands. Home to Bauerfiled International Airport, Port Vila is a small picturesque town scattered around the hills and waterfront of Port Vila harbour.

You will find a wealth of activities, holiday accommodations, and shopping in Port Vila. It is famous for the wide diversity of dining options around the city, providing a wide range of culinary delights. There are also quite a few bars and nightclubs in the city, including two casinos, for visitors' nightlife enjoyment.

Efate Island

Port Vila is located on Vanuatu's main administrative island of Efate. The island is beautiful, tropical, covered in lush vegetation and palm trees that line the white sandy beaches dotted around the island. To call this town picturesque is an understatement.

Santo Island

The largest in Vanuatu island archipelago is called Espiritu Santo island, also known simply as Santo. As Efate and other 80+ islands, Santo is covered in lush vegetation and surrounded by amazing beaches of soft sand. This gorgeous island is popular with all travellers. It is the divers, however, that really love Santo's diving sites, including the SS President Coolidge wreck, the most intact sunken WWII ship in the world.

Island Hopping

While islands like Efate and Santo have become travel destinations unto themselves, there are still 81 other Vanuatu islands to explore, many of them completely ninhabited. The best way to explore as many as you like and can afford, is by doing island hopping. By moving from island to island during your stay, you will get access to the widest range of attractions and enjoyment. This can be done by air and cruises.
