Port Vila, capital of Vanuatu

The Melanesian people have had villages in the area near Port Vila, on Vanuatu, since the 13th century BC. One can find numerous cultural influences around the city, some local and some colonial, which makes for a fascinating tour of the city. At the Vanuatu Cultural Center, you’ll find the national museum. Several islands offer local artifacts as part of the museum’s permanent collection. From start to finish, there may be no better way to get to know the local people...

Located in the South Pacific, Vanuatu is a volcanic archipelago that has the Solomon Islands, Fiji, and New Caledonia as neighbors.

Inhabited by the Melanesians, Fernandes de Queiros is credited with the discovery of this island nation in 1606. For more than a century, France, Britain, and Spain jointly managed the archipelago until the Republic of Vanuatu was founded in 1980.

There are essentially two options available for holidays in Vanuatu. You can choose to stay in Port Vila or you can choose to stay somewhere other than Port Vila. Stay in the city if you’re looking for a resort-like experience and atmosphere. You’ll be able to experience some of the island nation’s culture while enjoying plenty of beach time.

Staying outside of the city provides better access to the adventures the island can provide. It’s a great way to plan a trip to Tanna, for example, so that you can tour the famous Yasur Volcano. On Pentecost Island, you can even participate in the local land diving rituals that are similar to bungee jumping. Some local performers jump from a height of 30m without any safety equipment, except for 2-3 vines wrapped around their legs.

You’ll also want to dive the Coolidge during your stay in Vanuatu. The SS President Cooledge was a luxury ocean liner that was completed in 1931. While serving as a troopship, it was struck by mines in October 1942 and sank. The bow is at a depth of 21m, while the stern is at 73m. It is now a protected wreck where coral, reef fish, and barracuda can be seen.

Vanuatu is a spectacular destination. If you’ve ever wanted to explore the islands of the Pacific, this island nation should be one of your top destination options.
