For The Adventure Seeker

Or for you real thrill seekers, take part in the new Zip Line adventure… fly through the forest on a flying fox between amazing cliffs and spectacular scenery.

For the Romantics

Of course there are several great resorts for honeymooners including Eratap Beach Resort, The Havannah Vanuatu, Ratua Island Resort, and many more (which we can tell you all about)

Espiritu Santo

No matter what port you travel to in Vanuatu you will find a feast for your heart, eyes and soul exclusive to the islands of the South Pacific.
