LOCATION

ESPIRITU SANTO ACCOMMODATION

“Despite being the largest island in Vanuatu, Espiritu Santo or Santo as the locals like to call it, is still very much a hidden paradise to the outside world …”

Patrick Bill (local builder)

Espiritu Santo accommodation

If you’re dreaming of escaping to a tropical island but want to minimise your travel time and avoid the crowds, then Espiritu Santo is your answer. For those of you who live on the east coast of Australia, this Vanuatu paradise is literally on your doorstep (less than 2.5hrs direct flying time from Brisbane!). Picture New Caledonia and Fiji in your mind and then imagine a string of turquoise jewels draped in the middle – that’s Vanuatu! For you New Zealanders, Santo is a slightly longer trip (there are no direct flights and you have to transit via Port Vila 300km away) but we guarantee you it’s still worth the extra effort.

Espiritu Santo Accommodation

After all, Espiritu Santo is the largest island in Vanuatu (at just over 4,000 km2) so it can fulfil all your tropical island fantasies. Lazing around the pool sipping cocktails under swaying coconut trees – tick! Snorkelling on colourful reef filled with fish and turtles – tick! Sunbaking on uncrowded white sand beaches – tick.  Swapping your shoes for  bare feet – tick! Diving into an ocean so warm it feel like a bath – tick!

Espiritu Santo Accommodation

Espiritu Santo is also fast becoming the central hub for exploring the amazing islands of northern Vanuatu (like nearby Pentecost, the original home of bungy jumping and the volcanic island of Ambrym). Best of all, you don’t have to break the piggy bank to enjoy all this. It’s cheap to fly if you get in early and Espiritu Santo accommodation ranges from low key traditional style bamboo huts to value for money holiday houses like Turtle Bay Beach House!

DID YOU KNOW?

Espiritu Santo accommodation


Espiritu Santo really is paradise on earth. And we have the facts to prove it thanks to famous American novelist James A. Michener. He lived on Santo in a small hut on the east coast after being stationed there in 1942, along with 50,000 other US Forces during WWII. His classic book “Tales of the South Pacific” (as well as the hit musical “South Pacific”) paint a picture of Santo as a laid back island paradise. In fact, the mythical island of Bali Hai mentioned in his book is actually the nearby volcanic island of Ambae. And the good news is, nothing much has changed! Sure the island is now easier to get to and the Espiritu Santo accommodation is a little more up market but the island still has that laid back vibe.

HAPPIEST PLACE ON EARTH?

Everyone wants to be happy on their holiday, right? Well, in Vanuatu we guarantee it! But don’t just take our word for it. The world Happy Planet Index (HPI) has twice named Vanuatu as the happiest country on earth. Even the famous travel guide “Lonely Planet” has named Vanuatu the happiest place on earth. Why? Because Vanuatu has it all – a rich culture focused around family not money, a rich soil which provides bountiful food and water and a rich lifestyle that takes each day as it comes, allowing everyone to live relatively stress free and relaxed. We promise you will hear more laughter and see more smiles when you visit Vanuatu than on any other holiday. All you have to do is just switch over to island time and go with the flow!

ESPIRITU SANTO ISLAND

Santo boasts all the goodies you expect from a South Seas island paradise. It’s actually a big island surrounded by dozens of smaller islands (35 at last count) so you can choose between exclusive island resorts or a simple shack on the beach. Most of the action centres around Santo’s east coast. The centre of the island is lush and isolated and dominated by the highest mountain in the entire Vanuatu region (Mount Tabwemasana – 1,879m above sea level).

Those lucky enough to visit Santo say the island really is a hidden gem, an outdoor adventurer’s playground (think New Zealand without the cold), with world class fishing, kayaking, hiking and diving and low key Espiritu Santo accommodation to match! So if you prefer getting off the beaten track, taking the road less travelled, seeing the real, living culture of Vanuatu then this is the place for you!
