Santo is only a one hour flight from Port Vila, and is serviced by Vanair. Vanuatu's largest island, is 4010 km in size, and is fascinating in its diversity.

Espiritu Santo

Santo is only a one hour flight from Port Vila, and is serviced by Vanair. Vanuatu's largest island, is 4010 km in size, and is fascinating in its diversity. In Luganville, the second biggest town in Vanuatu, there is a quiet pace of life. A variety of reasonably priced accommodation, a number of restaurants and stores line the frontier style main street.

Scuba divers are drawn by the world famous wrecks and spectacular marine life. During WWII the 30,000 ton line 'President Coolidge' sank in the Santo Harbour after striking a mine and still lies structurally intact in between 25 & 60 metres of water.

This largest accessible shipwreck for scuba divers in the world, together with the 'USS Tucker', Million Dollar Point, shark feeding dives and many pristine reef sites make it a divers dream.

Due to its size and its mountains, Santo has the greatest expanses of original rainforest and is home to colourful butterflies, tropical birds and beautiful orchids. Huge Kauri trees remain in the mountainous forests of the southwest.

The Big Bay Conservation area in the north was the first National Park ever created in Vanuatu and is a must if you like the natural splendour of the rainforest, and enjoy bushwalking. Natural spots of great beauty include the stunning Champagne Beach, in the north and the deep, crystal clear Blue Hole whose cool spring water is a bright azure colour and is great for a refreshing dip.

Santo was also famous as a military base during World War II, when up to 100,000 soldiers were based in Luganville. Left behind were many buildings, a total of four airstrip and coral roads which are still in use today.

BANKS

Banks & Torres are the northernmost islands of Vanuatu, and are primarily volcanic. The principal ones, Gaua and Vanua Lava, still have active volcanoes.

Vanua Lava,

- with its 1400 inhabitants is the provincial capital. Its most dramatic sights are Waterfall Bay on the west coast and its semi active volcano Mt Sere'ama.

Mota Lava

- the most populated island of the Banks group. The local culture is still very much alive. Tranquil Rah Island, off the SE coast has white sand beaches and impressive rock formations.

Gaua has a stunning landscape with an active volcano which towers over a crater lake. The ascent to the crater lake (approx 4 hrs) is suitable for fit walkers. From here, Mt Garat (797m high) is easily accessible after a canoe trip across the beautiful sulphur coloured waters of Lake Letes. This overflows into an impressive waterfall some 4 hours walk from the crater lake. Gaua has had at least 13 eruptions from Mt. Garat since 1963.

The Torres group include six main islands with dazzling white sand beaches. It is home to the sought-after coconut crab which is in danger of extinction.
