Lelepa Island Things to Do

  • Lelepa Island Tour

    We did a Lelepa Island Day Tour run by the locals. The day tour includes transfers from your resort in Port Vila, BBQ lunch, snorkelling gear, morning and afternoon refreshments etc. It costed us 3600 vatu each but we got a half price deal because we were staying at Pangos Paradise Cove Resort... I'm not sure if that is a common thing or not but it...

  • Caving!

    There are some great caves on the other side of the island..the tour will take you there. THey're really old and there's a very old handprint there..the locals beleive the spirits live there..it's very cool. they lit candles for us and we went in about 70m ..it was great!

  • Snorkelling

    You can do snorkelling basically all around Lelepa (according to the lonely planet) but the tour only took us to a couple of beaches. The first one was great!


Lelepa Island Restaurants

  • Local feast

    The tour provides a delicious BBQ, honestly the best I've had in ages. There's lots of food, there's chicken, beef, fruit, everything... the beef tehre is great!

  • Yum...

    On our Lelepa Island day tour the guides gave us lunch at a beautiful beach...the lunch was served under a shelter at the beach. The boys cooked us a wonderful BBQ and even sang to us after we ate...it was fantastic. I loved the sweet potato...yum!

Lelepa Island Transportation

  • walking and boats

    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.

  • Boats...

    We got a small power boat across to Lelepa Island from Efate and back (without lights in the dark...hehe). The trip wasn't too long although the boat was very slow...it just gave us more time to look around and chat though. :)

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

    As you're always doing something on tours, whether it's snorkelling, walking, etc. Take a minute to enjoy how gorgeous this beach is.... if you walk up to the end, you'll see lots of really nice trees that the locals have written their name on (that's how they claim trees!) and then make them into boats.

Lelepa Island General

  • Lelepa Island homes

    We visited a small village on Lelepa Island which houses most of the people living on the island. Their homes were mainly made of iron instead of palm leaves... The people in the village were very friendly and had some wonderful crafts for sale. :)

  • Lelepa Island Caves

    We visited two caves on Lelepa Island. One was said to be where cannibals once lived... Another partly collapsed early in 2004 just before we were there and we were the first in it since it was cleaned...

  • Natapao Village

    Natapao village is on the southern coast of Lelepa Island. At the end of your Lelepa Island tour the guides will take you to their village and show/sell you some goods made by their wifes and other locals...
