Vanuatu – Pacific Islands
The Adventure & Relaxation Capital of the Pacific
Vanuatu is a South Pacific island nation made up of more than 80 islands, some of them active volcanoes. It’s a warm, friendly place to visit with a number of activities and sights for all budgets and interests.One of Vanuatu’s most fascinating sights is Chief Roi Mata’s Domain. More than 700 years ago, a chief so great he was known as king reigned over the islands, and his legend lived on in oral histories.
The oral tradition was not considered reliable history, however, until archeologists began discovering evidence that backed up the old stories. In 1967, the extensive grave of the chief was discovered, and today, Chief Roi Mata’s Domain is a World Heritage site. Tours can be arranged to the area. Vanuatu is a terrific place for fishing, adventure travel and outdoor activities. It’s a particularly popular destination for scuba divers. Vanuatu features some amazing properties & real estate.
The sunken SS President Coolidge is the main attraction, a massive luxury liner converted to a troop carrier for the war effort and sunk in 1942. Because the ship went down within mere meters of shore, beginning divers can enjoy this spectacle alongside more experienced ones.
If you are looking for Vanuatu holiday homes you might want to check out GoStay Vanuatu. Port Vila is the place for shopping in Vanuatu, the only duty-free area in the islands. The unique pleasure of shopping at Port Vila is the combination of French, English and Melanesian cultures. Away from the luxury of the duty-free shops, on the island of Espiritu Santo, lies Luganville Town, where visitors more interested in traditional arts and crafts can purchase such items. You can fly directly from Fiji to Vanuatu. While in Vanuatu be sure to go to a Vanuatu Day Spa and paper yourself!
