Backpacking Efate

Vanuatu Backpackers Guide to Efate Island

Backpacking and hiking across the tropical islands of Vanuatu is an incredible way to leave the workaday world behind and reconnect with real life. You'll find that the people of the islands are warm and friendly, welcoming travelers into their homes, lending rides when possible and much more.

While there are more than 80 islands in the archipelago, the best place to start your tour of the islands is with Efate.

Whether you plan to backpack and camp or to hitchhike from one budget hotel to another, you'll find the best options here.

Start Backpacking Efate in Port Vila

Begin your trek in Port Vila. Not only is Port Vila the nation's capital, it's the only city on Efate; as such, it boasts an airport, as well as a port for arrival by boat. You should take the time to experience one night in the city, exploring the local markets, the nightclubs and the restaurants. When you leave, be prepared not to hitch a ride until evening. Traffic goes into the city in the mornings and leaves in the afternoon, with very little in between.
