Local Vanuatu Attractions


Local Attractions

There is so much to see and do during your stay in Vanuatu. Visit our Resort Hub to learn more about these attractions and the many more options available.

Mount Yasur

Located in the southern part of Vanuatu on Tanna Island, a 45 minute flight away from Port Vila, Mount Yasur is one of the world’s most active volcanoes, erupting several times an hour for the last 800 years – at least. It is also one of the most accessible active volcanoes, with many tours offering tourists the chance to stand at the edge of a volcano spewing out fiery lava, feel the earth rumbling beneath their feet and hear the whizz of volcanic rock flying through the air. Always go with a guide and follow their directions; they know the safest places for you to stand. Day tours from the Resort are available.

Hideaway Island

Exactly as its name implies, Hideaway Island is a secluded retreat from the rest of Vanuatu. Just a five-minute taxi ride from the centre of Port Vila, this island is a marine sanctuary teeming with colourful sponges, corals, anemone and tropical fish. The small island also features the world’s only underwater post office. Mail a special postcard to anywhere in the world with the help of a neoprene-clad postman.

Mystery Island

This tiny, uninhabited islet on Aneityum, Vanuatu’s southernmost island, is perfect for day trips from Port Vila. Called Inyeug by locals, Mystery Island is ideal for those who are interested in unlimited amounts of blue skies, white sandy beaches, aquamarine waters and picture-perfect views.

Ekasup Cultural Village

A short five-kilometre drive from Port Vila, the Ekasup Cultural Village introduces visitors to the ancestral way of life of Vanuatu natives. Tribesmen guide you through exhibitions and mini-workshops that demonstrate how the Ni-Vanuatu would traditionally prepare and preserve food, their weaving culture, and fishing and hunting techniques.
