Port Vila Harbor, Vanuatu.

Vanuatu is a collection of 83 islands that lie in the middle of the circle of Fiji, New Caledonia and the Salomon Islands. Most of the islands are mountainous and of volcanic origin with lush green forest that spill down to white sandy beaches.

The island are an escape from the fast modern world with balmy breezes and gourmet food. Port Vila, the national capital on the island of Efate, is lively and at the centre of Vanuatu’s tourist trade, very colonial, chic, cool and safe, there’s no bargaining, no hawkers and no pressure to buy.

Vanuatu is full of things to do; the world’s most accessible active volcano is on the island of Tanna; It’s a snorkelers’ and divers’ paradise with wreck diving in crystal clear water;  Picture postcard pristine beaches where there’s nobody but you; Abseil down a waterfall or just anchor your superyacht off a deserted island.

The islands rich heritage is never far away and simple island life in primitive villages with extraordinary cultural ceremonies and dances still exist. The island all offer something different and a superyacht charter is a great way to get around and explore what each has to offer.
