Journeys : April May 2009
Be captivated by Vanuatu V anuatu is an archipelago nation located in the tropical waters of the Coral Sea, about three hours’ flying time from the east coast of Australia. This South Pacific paradise, formerly known as the New Hebrides, is rich in tribal culture, breathtaking scenery and wondrous marine life. It has some of the world’s most pristine beaches, gorgeous lagoons and rainforests as well as fantastic diving and game fishing experiences. The country is made up of a host of beautiful islands, each with its own culture and features. Efate Island is the gateway to Vanuatu, where you’ll find the country’s capital Port Vila as well as a wide range of resorts, boutique accommodation, dining options and activities. Espiritu Santo has crystal-blue waters, white sandy beaches and excellent diving. Pentecost is famous for the land diving ritual in April and May, while Tanna Island is home to Mt Yasur, the world’s most accessible volcano.
