Is the tropical oasis of Vanuatu calling your name? Why not spend some time on the country's largest island, Espiritu Santo, and soak up the balmy atmosphere in style by booking a room in one of our Espiritu Santo hotels?History "Espiritu Santo" means "Holy Spirit" and it was named such in the 1600s when a Portuguese explorer, Pedro de Quiros, landed on the island, thinking that it was the "Great Southern Land of the Holy Spirit" (i.e. Australia) that he had heard about. Things to do
The beaches here are not only picture perfect, they're also uncrowded. In fact, you can snorkel on incredible coral reefs and then dry off on the white sandy shores without another soul in sight. Some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving sites are reefs that have formed over shipwrecks and war relics that were dumped overboard when WWII ended, so make sure you check them out.
Lonnoc and Champagne beaches are perfect for swimming but be sure to stop off at the Blue Holes on the way to check out the magnificent blue water that springs to the surface of the holes after passing through layers of coral and limestone below. It really is a magnificent sight, so take some photos and then go for a dip in the refreshing waters.
For a unique cultural experience, go on a tour of a traditional village to see how the remote villagers live. You'll see women weaving and cooking and the men might tell you some of their folk tales. You'll also be treated to a traditional dance and you can guarantee that it'll be tough to keep your hips from swaying to the beat of the drum!
Adventurous souls will love trekking through the jungle in Espiritu Santo, discovering hidden caves and rock climbing in the forest. Other activities not-to-be-missed are horse riding on the beach and kayaking.Shopping and dining
Espiritu Santo doesn't have much in the way of shopping but you'll enjoy a quick walk around the produce market and you'll be able to pick up some unique handicrafts as souvenirs.
Most of the restaurants on the island are inside the hotels and resorts but you will find a few restaurants dotted around town, especially near the market. In the evening, why not try some kava? It's a traditional drink made from a root vegetable and has long been used in the Pacific for its medicinal properties. Now it's served in bars and is a sure-fire way to get you feeling relaxed (not that the laidback island atmosphere and incredible scenery won't do that too).Getting here and around
Pekoa International Airport is located in Luganville on Espiritu Santo Island, so book one of these cheap flights to Luganville and then get around by scooter, mini bus or hire car.
