Vanuatu offers fun and unique activities for any traveler from treks, waterfall abseiling, deserted beach picnics to wreck dives and cultural villages.
Efate is the main island of Vanuatu, where the capital Port Vila is situated. The island has a rugged coastline and rolling verdant countryside, fast flowing rivers, cascading waterfalls, isolated sandy bays and lagoons. The capital Port Vila is located around a magnificent natural harbour offering stunning views of Iririki and other surrounding islands. The waterfront area is unpolluted, visitors are stunned to look down from the seawall and see live corals and tropical fish.
It's also fast becoming known as the gourmet capital of the South Pacific. The potpourri of expatriate cultures is reflected in food styles served in over forty restaurants and cafes. You can buy an Aussie meat pie or American chili dog, sip cappuccino in one of the many outdoor cafes or purchase pates and salads from a patisserie in a supermarket to fill your picnic hamper.
Night life in Vila has blossomed steadily, the atmosphere fun, and caters for all ages offered by the resort hotels, night clubs and pubs, several casinos and more. You can stroll along the waterfront, or darkened back streets late at night and feel safe. Passing locals are likely to wish you a soft "Good night", or perhaps strike up a friendly conversation.
Shopping is fun, easy going, and hassle free! There's no such thing as a hard sell or pushy salesman. Prices are fixed and bargaining is not a part of the friendly lifestyle.
