Vanuatu is a very special destination for family holidays… The gentle and caring Ni-Vanuatu people always have a big smile for kids. Most resorts on the main island are very family friendly and the kids clubs are excellent. Activities for 3 to 12 year olds have a distinct cultural theme ranging from painting, dancing, basket weaving and pool activities to local excursions. The older children will find plenty to amuse them including free use of outrigger canoes, surf skis, catamarans and snorkeling gear.
Outside of the resort hotels it is totally safe to visit the local markets, waterfalls, cruise on the magnificent harbour or simply explore Port Vila. Getting around is easy! Metered taxis are plentiful in the main towns, as are mini buses which are a cheap way of getting around. Cars, 4WDs and jeeps can be hired in Port Vila and Luganville with an Australian driver’s license. Here are some of our favourites.
