Island Discovery


Discover Efate, a tropical island paradise with hidden natural wonders, famous beaches, historic sites, scenic lookouts and the fascinating art of fire walking. Take a short walk through lush, tropical rainforest to Larofa Village, meet a traditional Melanesian warrior and learn about village life and customs. Witness the fascinating, time-honoured art of fire walking and learn about the tradition, sacrifices and preparation the men undertake prior to this ritual. It’s a one-of-a-kind history lesson you won’t find in a book. Next, at Eden on the River, take a refreshing dip in the cool, freshwater, natural swimming hole. Surrounded by dense jungle, you’ll feel like civilisation is a million miles away. Catch glimpses of modern village life as you pass contemporary villages. See the remnants of the American Armed Forces involvement during World War II. Then continue along picturesque Havana Harbour to the famous beach used during the filming of Survivor Vanuatu! On your return, visit Klems Hill Lookout for amazing views over Mele Bay, Hideaway Island and the township in the distance.
