Espiritu Santo

Vanuatu - Classic Vanuatu

Exploring Santo is easy via the tar sealed East Coast Road that runs from Luganville, on the islands south-east corner, to Port Orly village on the northern tip.

The east coast is home to freshwater swimming holes, white sandy beaches, coral reefs, accessible wreck dive sites, luxurious resorts, traditional Ni-Vanuatu bungalows, coconut plantations and grazing land for the famous Santo beef.

If you are up for an adventure, get off the beaten track and explore south Santo. Discover secret waterfalls, treks through dense bush, traditional Santo village life and black sandy beaches. The west coast of Santo characterized by high mountains and thick bushland, the west coast home to Vanuatu’s highest peak, Mt. Tabwemasana.

As there are no roads on this side of the Island, the people who live there maintain a predominately traditional way of life boasting the richness and continuity of Vanuatu’s customs and traditions.

On Santo relax or picnic on white sandy beaches, dive around the wreck of the SS President Coolidge, learn about the culture in a Kastom village, catch marlin, wahoo, Spanish mackerel. Or kayak from Island to island on clear blue water, and swim in jewel blue holes.
