Port of Call - Champagne Bay

Nestled on the north-eastern coast of the island of Espiritu Santo, Champagne Bay is a true gem of Vanuatu. Known for it´s gloriously white sand, and aquamarine waters, Champagne Bay encompasses everything the Pacific Islands are all about.

Locals from surrounding villages regularly flock to the bay to sell their unique, handmade goods. They are especially prevalent in the area when cruise ships are docked for a visit, meaning your experience here will be one where you can soak up the culture of the island life.

Basking in both the sunshine and the shadows of the surrounding mountains, Champagne Bay is a special place that never fails to capture the hearts of its visitors. If a day of lazing in the sun, exploring a beautiful coral reef and soaking your body in crystal clear waters it just what the doctor ordered, this is the place for you!

What to Explore
Expand

Shopping

A must-do for all visitors is a shopping expedition in the village center. Discover island delights like sea shell necklaces, earrings and bracelets, which are all created from the shells found on Champagne Bay's white sands and made in the likeness of traditional jewelry worn by islanders.

Woven hats and floral apparel can also be found in the shops that line the beach front.

Village Tours

Tours are a great option to see everything the island has to offer, as well as giving tourists a taste of the island culture and way of life. Explore places like the biggest coconut and cattle plantation in Vanuatu, before making a beeline to the beach for an afternoon of relaxation in the sunshine.
