Vanuatu, which roughly translates to 'Land Eternal', is a holiday archipelago just 800 km west of Nadi in Fiji. Created by ancient volcanic activity, the 83 islands that make up Vanuatu feature landscapes of dense jungle or smaller coral islands with deep natural harbours and vast beaches.
Port Vila is Vanuatu's national capital and while managing to retain much of its authentic colonial feel, Port Vila still offers all the comforts of home including a number of restaurants which enjoy views out over the ocean or lush volcanic terrain. Accommodation packages come in a wide range of options catering for all tastes and budgets. Choose from affordable motels to island bungalow, sea-side resorts or luxurious hotels featuring beds that float out over the lagoons.
Vanuatu holidays also offer some of the world's best kept secrets including a ship wrecked luxury liner reminiscent of the Titanic in diveable water, the island of Tanna home to the most accessible active volcano in the world, giant banyan trees up to the size of a football field, cascading waterfalls, the island of Malekula home to fascinating cultural ceremonies, primitive villages where the ancient culture continues to this day and the island of Penetcost home of the famous land diving, a traditional ceremony thought to be the first bungy jump in the world.
Vanuatu wouldn't be an island escape without a tropical holiday climate and during summer which falls between November and March, the weather is hot and humid with temperatures averaging 28C. Winter falls between April and September with average temperatures reaching 23C. Summer is also when the tropical cyclone season occurs however most resorts are located in the south and are less prone to experiencing extreme weather conditions.
