Things to do

Hit the ground running by visiting the island of Tanna. Hire a car to drive across ash plains up to the crater rim of Mount Yasur and witness lava storms bubbling in the world’s most active volcano. On the western side of Tanna, discover the mystical hidden Blue Cave, only accessible by a swim-through passageway.

If you’d rather view the jungle from above, Vanuatu’s Jungle Zipline in Port Vila is a must. Instead of flying above the trees, climb up inside the hollow centre of one at The Giant Banyan in the village of Leitouapam on Tanna Island.

Once you’ve seen the sights of the jungle, head for the sea. Known for its incredible marine life and the world’s only underwater post office, the marine sanctuary surrounding Hideaway Island is a haven for divers and snorkellers. To experience local life, Pele Island is a perfect day out for the family. Every Island in Vanuatu is as unique as it is beautiful.
