Efate has a rugged coastline and rolling verdant countryside, fast flowing rivers, cascading waterfalls, isolated sandy bays and lagoons. It is the main island of Vanuatu, where the capital Port Vila is situated and also where the majority of commerce and tourism takes place.
Port Vila is located around a magnificent natural harbour offering stunning views of Iririki and Ifira islands. It is Vanuatu's international gateway and remains the only town on the island. The airport is but a few miles from town and all major resorts and hotels. Vila is a pretty town. Clean and uncluttered, the waterfront area is so unpolluted, visitors are stunned to look down from the seawall and see live corals and tropical fish.
The island of Efate is also where you will find the majority of Vanuatu's resorts, most of which are only 15 to 20 minutes from town, markets, shopping and restaurants.
