Touch down in Vanuatu and the first thing you'll notice is how warmly you and your family are welcomed to this island paradise.
Smiles, laughter and the family spirit are what this nation is all about, making it the perfect destination for holidaymakers with kids.
Vanuatu is made up of several different islands, but many families head to Efate, which is home to the capital of Port Vila. Here, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy both natural beauty and a bustling metropolitan buzz!
Stroll through local markets discovering fresh produce and traditional crafts, dine out and try some of the local fare or wander the waterfront to your heart's content.
Head out on an adventure into the pleasant countryside, where tranquil walks will lead you to beautiful waterfalls and lagoons that the kids will love splashing around in.
You may even want to pack a picnic and hire a 4WD vehicle so you can hit the road yourselves and explore some of the island's off-the-beaten-track gems. You never know what you might find!
Cruising on the high seas is also fun for the whole family. Sit back and enjoy the view while the young ones are on the lookout for marine life like dolphins and turtles.
For even more excitement, make use of outrigger canoes, snorkelling gear and other equipment on hire from your resort to keep you occupied through the balmy days.
Day trips or overnight charters to other nearby islands also offer plenty of adventure and each destination is abundant with charm.
You also have your pick of the bunch when it comes to resorts, with on-site child-friendly facilities and minding services widely available.
Kids aged from 3 to 12 can enjoy cultural-themed kids' clubs, with activities like dancing, painting, basket weaving and swimming to keep them enriched and occupied while you indulge in some quality time for yourself. Talk about the perfect holiday!
