I don't know about you, but it sounds like high time to head to Tanna Island if you ask me. With the perfect combination of natural beauty and luxury treatment, you just can't go wrong.
Vanuatu is made up of plenty of splendid islands, and Tanna is a particularly popular one.
It's both absolutely stunning and incredibly affordable, so you can have the holiday you've always dreamed of without breaking open the piggy bank.
This island is perhaps most famous for its Yasur Volcano. This is one of the world's most accessible live volcanoes, as you can walk right up to the crater rim and witness all of the goings-on inside it.
That's right, you can see molten lava and steam right up close while the roaring, hissing, booming and exploding of the volcano fills the air. You'll even feel the ground itself shudder beneath your feet - it's quite the exhilarating experience, if you're up for it that is. Make sure you keep an eye on this amazing landmark at night too, when its glow gently lights up the night.
Beyond exploring this awe-inspiring volcano, you can also spend your days swimming in underwater caves, playing with colourful tropical fish surrounded by bright coral and exploring the inland jungle. Here you can trek to waterfalls and dazzling springs on the back of a horse or by your own two feet. We recommend the horse-riding option for the most memorable experience - not to mention if those legs are feeling tired from hitting the dance floor after a few too many beachside cocktails the night before.
There's also the local culture to discover, with song and dance an integral part of life on this island. Embark on a day tour to a welcoming local village and depending on the time of year, witness cultural ceremonies and festivals.
For a small island, Tanna sure offers more than you could ever want or dream of. See for yourself.powdery white and the majestic blue swimming holes are refreshing and abundant.
