  • Pandanus Shop

    Port-Vila Things to Do

    A little shop that is a jem! Similar to an Australia high street design shop with jewelry, art, original tshirts, belts, books and more. A must visit when in Vanuatu. Lots of the items are made in Vanuatu and a nice eclectic mix of international goodies. Prices are fair and they accept aussi dollars as well as the local money.

  • Round the island tour

    Efate Things to Do

    If you get the chance then do an Around the Island Tour...just ask any bus driver in town - most of them will offer a price to take you around.

    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!

    Lelepa Island Things to Do

    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!

  • 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.

    Iririki Island Restaurants

    I had breakfast in the cafeteria. There was also a restaurant, but the cafeteria was more informal.You have to spend a determinate amount of money to get in Iririki resort, unless you are a customer. So the best way to spend that money is having lunch or breakfast, as I did. Buffet breakfast. See the picture.Needless to say that I did not have...

    It is a very small island, soon you will get familiarized. Snorkelling and the good and copious breakfast were my best memories.
