Journey To Vanuatu
Scattered in the South Pacific Ocean is an archipelago of 83 islands known as the Republic of Vanuatu. Although predominantly volcanic and mountainous in nature, the islands boast pristine beaches, sapphire blue lagoons and lush tropical forests.
Head first to Espiritu Santo Island, one of the largest islands of Vanuatu. If you’re in Vanuatu between April and June, head to Pentecost Island to witness Nagol, its famous land diving ritual. Indulge in an infrared volcanic ash therapy bath at the Volcanic Earth Healing Centre Day Spa at Port Vila in Efate. Unique to Vanuatu, the rejuvenating ash bath acts as a balm for aches and pains and is the perfect way to end your beach adventure.
WHERE TO STAY - Ratua Private Island - With 15 Indonesian villa style homes built from 200-year-old teak wood and surrounded by lush greenery, the island is a perfect private getaway. Ratua Private Island, Luganville, Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu (+678 300 20; www.ratua.com)
