Vanuatu holiday resorts and visitors guide

 

Tanna Island

One of the most popular Vanuatu volcano islands

Tanna island is one of the most popular holiday destinations for people heading to Vanuatu. It seems to attract a variety of different kinds of tourists, people looking for different things. Some want nothing more than to relax, while some are doing just the opposite and are searching for adventure. Whichever camp you fall into, you are sure to have a great time while holidaying on Tanna.

Mount Yasur volcano

Home of Mt Yasur, one of the most accessible active volcanoes in the world. 360m above sea level and surrounded by an ash plain, it provides an outstanding fireworks display on a night visit. A 20-minute walk from the carpark takes you to the rim of Yasur, where you can look into the fiery cauldron of molten rock spurting from the three vents.

Fijian sailing ship

Tanna Island also has many other attractions such as the wreck of the Fijian sailing ship which sank in 1916 and lies in 20 metres of water. There are wild horses that inhabit White Grass Plains, white sandy beaches and the black sand of Imlao Beach. Visitors can also see waterfalls, hot springs, spectacular Yamiplmai Cascades and dugongs at Port Resolution, particularly popular with eco-tourists. Port Resolution was named by Captain Cook when he landed in 1774, attracted by the great glow of Yasur in the night sky.
