Vanuatu Travel

After becoming an independent state in 1980, Vanuatu fully opened its doors to the world of tourists. The islands where most activities for visitors take place are Efate, Espiritu Santo and Tanna. It is in these places visitors could find tours operators that would arrange all kinds of excursions for them. The capital, Port-Vila provides opportunities for travelers to enjoy local dishes; participate in watersports or go around looking at some landmarks. WW11 relics and wrecks could be seen along the seabed.

Portuguese explorers discovered the nation of Vanuatu in the early 16 th century, but it was another two hundred years with the arrival of Captain James Cook that Europeans actually settled on this island chain.
