Where to Stay

From the bustling market stalls along Port Vila to the azure blue waters of Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu offers a variety of accommodations that satisfy all preferences, whether for families, couples or groups of friends.

For a family holiday

Choose Port Vila for a family holiday where attractions are within easy reach, and great child-friendly resorts cater to every family member's needs. For something off-the-beaten-path, consider a beachfront bungalow on Tanna Island where you can marvel at the spectacle of Mount Yasur together.

For a couples holiday

Couples looking for seclusion should consider the idyllic Havannah Harbour on Efate's north coast, or venture to one of the luxurious adults-only resorts on Espiritu Santo, offering a backdrop of white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and stunning sunset views.

For a holiday with friends

If you're travelling as a group of friends, the vibrant city life of Port Vila has an excellent range of accommodations and plenty to keep you entertained. For the more adventurous, a journey to Malekula's untouched interior offers unique insights into the local tribal history and traditions.

When to Visit

The best time to visit Vanuatu largely depends on your preferences. For warm weather and diving opportunities, consider visiting between July and October. While this is the peak tourist season resulting in larger crowds and higher prices, the underwater visibility is exceptional during this time, and the weather is comfortably warm.

If you don't mind the occasional tropical rain, consider the off-peak season from November to April. Despite being the rainy season, showers in Vanuatu are usually brief, and the rainforest flourishes during this time. It could be an ideal time for budget-conscious travellers, provided you're opting to visit outside of the cyclone-prone period from January to March.
