  • What a hidden Gem - JoJo Vanuatu

    Port-Vila Shopping

I had a lovely chat with Jojo about visits to Paris and got to see the works in progress in the studio. I even got to see some of the silk collection and vintage...

    Efate Things to Do

  • walking and boats

    Lelepa Island Transportation

    The tour will take you around the island, walking and by boat. If you're brave enough to go there by yourself.. then remember to ask permission before you go anywhere as the island is all private property and even the water, bush, caves are owned by people. When you pay for the island tour, this contributes to the locals.
