Experience Tanna Island

During your stay at our Port Vila accommodation, you are ideally based to get out and explore the fascinating islands surrounding Efate, on a day trip or overnight. One of the most popular is Tanna Island, which is dominated by the ominous hulk of active volcano Mount Yasur.

Brave visitors can embark on a tour of the volcano and peer right over the edge into the swirling mass of lava below. The feeling is truly awe inspiring and is a real bucket list experience for most guests at our accommodation Vanuatu. It’s not a surprise that the volcano has become the focal-point for a lot of local myths, legends and folklore. Some residents on the island believe that the spirits of their dead live inside the volcano, trapped simultaneously in heaven and hell. Whatever your personal beliefs, the sight of this staggering force of nature close up is guaranteed to take your breath away. It’s easily accessible from our Port Vila accommodation, so be sure to add it to your itinerary.

There are many unique rituals and customs on Tanna island, where life has remained largely changed for generations. Men dress in traditional nambas while the women adorn grass skirts, and there are several indigenous festivals and celebrations, including the Nekowiar. Guests at our holiday resort Vanuatu love learning about this celebration, which is a huge three day party which sees local Tannese villages strive to impress each other with gifts of the finest quality.
