Lifou is the largest coral atoll in the Loyalty archipelago. Lifou has the wonderful charm of an island that has managed to preserve its own traditional Kanak culture. You'll stand there awestruck in front of all of its breathtakingly beautiful views. Lifou is special in that it has a number of diversified landscapes; the northern coast of the island is made up of high, steep cliffs, whilst the southern side has pristine white sand beaches with stunning turquoise waters.

Port Vila

The setting for James Michener’s “Tales of the South Pacific”, and a U.S. base during WWII, there are said to be 130 distinctly different cultures and languages on the island of Vanuatu. English and French dominate, while fabulous beaches and the natural harbor of Port Vila, the capital, are beautiful in any language. Don’t be surprised if the friendly Melanesian people invite you to share a “kava” – a local brew.
