Leisure Activities in Vanuatu, Vanuatu

When the sun goes down, there is a choice of some fun local pubs and clubs where you can unwind and mingle with locals and travelers from the world over. For something a little more cultural, you could reserve spots at beachfront fire shows where dancers and performers regale the audience before everyone is treated to a feast featuring regional specialties and traditional cuisine.

The Port Vila Handicrafts Community is the best place to find souvenirs of your trip to Vanuatu. Buy some uniquely Melanesian handicrafts, hand woven fabrics, paintings, sarongs, woven grass bags, mats and more. Pick up some local herbs and spices or some traditional Tanna coffee to remind you of your vacation in this tropical gem.

No island vacation is complete without some time in the water and most resorts and tourism hubs offer visitors a chance to try canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling and even scuba diving. And when you’re back, treat your muscles to a relaxing massage at one of the many world-class spas in Efate.

Golfers can count on that something special when they play around at any of the golf courses in the region. Whether it is the 18 hole Port Vila Country Club that overlooks the impossibly blue waters of Mele Bay or the more modest 9 hole course on Espiritu Santo, you will find yourself looking out onto some of the most stunning vistas of any course in the world.
