Island Holiday Attractions and Activities in Vanuatu

There’s a reason why island vacations are the most popular in the world. Relax on golden beaches, bask in the warm sun and de-stress at home for a week in a tropical paradise. For some, relaxing on the beach sounds like the perfect vacation, but others want something different from their free time. That is why Santo Vanuatu offers the perfect island vacation; beautiful beaches to enjoy and plenty of attractions and activities to give variety to the days and nights spent on the islands.

Like most island vacations, Vanuatu offers scuba diving experiences for those looking to explore the depths of the surrounding oceans. With 83 different islands that make up the archipelago, there are many different diving experiences to be a part of. In Port Vila, Vanuatu’s largest city, Nautilus is the best known dive operator. They have facilities for all skill levels, from beginner to experienced divers, with indoor training pools, equipment rentals, and dive instructors who can teach you how to dive from scratch.

Diving is not all that Nautilus has to offer; Many of the maritime operators organize chartered fishing trips and island tours. Vanuatu has an impressive reputation for big game and sport fishing. Operators can usually take up to five guests to fish for a half or full day. Armed with local knowledge of tides and fishing spots, you have a great chance of landing that big catch including Magrove Jack, Coral Trout or Green Jobfish and for the sport fisherman Mahimahi, Marlin and Wahoo. They even do night fishing for Broadbill and Dogtooth.

It’s not just about the water; Visitors to Vanuatu can partake in a different kind of scenic experience on a 4×4 off-road tour of the islands. Prepare to get a little dirty and prepare to get a little wet. Traversing the beaches and forest of Port Vila on a 4×4 tour is an exciting and unique way to see Vanuatu. Another exciting attraction is Yasur, an active volcano on Tanna Island, the most visited volcano in Vanuatu. It is reported that the glow from this volcano caught the attention of Captain James Cook and led him on the first European voyage to the island. Consider taking a day trip to discover this volcano up close and personal!

Perhaps the best way to enjoy the islands is to find short-term accommodation through Vanuatu estate agents. Renting your own property for a vacation will give you much more independence during your stay. Short term rental works well for groups of friends looking to travel to the islands for a few weeks, allowing them to share a house, cook and enjoy Vanuatu together. Who knows, you might enjoy the islands so much that you invest in your own vacation home on the island.
