There are so many activities and tours in Port Vila visitors run the risk of never getting around to seeing the rest of Vanuatu (though you still should!). Port Vila is the only town on Efate and is surrounded by attractions – you can shop at markets in the morning, splash around waterfalls in the afternoon, and be back on the beach for an incredible tropical sunset!
Where to stay
Whether you want to be immersed in the lively atmosphere of the city, or relax in a more tranquil area, Port Vila accommodation can cater for you. Spacious villas, individual bungalows or rooms with balconies overlooking the Pacific are all on the accommodation menu, so you have the freedom to choose something that suits your own unique tastes.
