What to Explore
Expand

Shopping

Port Vila is the hub of Vanuatu, and as such boasts a vast array of shopping opportunities. From traditional jewelry, local art works and crafted items toreplicas of famous designers, there is something here for everyone.

The primary shopping locations can be found along Port Vila's Main Street, with the markets by the pier a more laid back alternative. Some of its most famous stores in Vila include Handikraf Blong Vanuatu, Vanuatu Bijouterie, Golden Butterfly, and Vila Handprints.

While you are shopping, always remember to keep the Customs laws of your home country in mind. You don´t want to have to throw all your new things away at the airport when you arrive home!

Scuba Diving

Dive into an underwater paradise when you embark on a snorkeling or scuba diving adventure of the reef surrounding Vila Island. Boasting the most colorful and majestic coral reef sites in the entire Pacific Ocean, this is a must-do activity for anyone interested in seeing the beauty of the underwater world.

Whether it´s simply cruising along with the tropical fish or exploring historical wrecks, like the ruined Star of Russia, and the trading vessel, Konanda ship wrecks, this is guaranteed to be an experience you will never forget.

Golf

If staying on land is more your style, but you don´t want to do anything too strenuous, why not play a round of golf?

Vila is home to three main golf courses; the Port Vila Country Club, Le Meridien and Le Lagon Resort Vanuatu. All are high-quality courses and offer the perfect day outfor those wanting to practice their swing.

Fishing

Fishing is a hugely popular past time in Vila, with the options for tourists seemingly endless. Try out some deep-sea fishing, reef fishing or game fishing, with several operators on the island giving you exclusive access to a beach where you can cook and dine on what you just caught.

There are even fishing operators that will drop you off and then pick you up from uninhabited islands where you can fish and explore the caves and scenery for as long as you desire.

Dining Suggestions

There are excellent dining options and restaurants available to you while visiting Port Vila. The heart of Vanuatu boasts over 50 different restaurants, as well as the regular Melanesian village feasts.

Experience the true taste of Vanuatu with a feast at Le Rendez Vous, while enjoying an outlook over the beautiful bay. Tamanu Beach Club & Restaurant is another great option and is located right on the beach!

The most popular French food spots are Vila Chaumiere, which rests on the river, and Tropik Bistrot, which is a small romantic getaway restaurant.

Bring to Shore
Expand

What to bring to shore?

A humid climate makes lightweight clothing, sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat essential to your visit to Vila. If you are planning on doing some walking, ensure you bring flat-soled shoes, while swimming gear is a must if you plan on taking a dip in the crystal clear waters that surround the island.

Be aware that the Ni-Vanuatu people are quite conservative, so dress in a modest manner.
