This is not to imply that only Efate island is interesting in Vanuatu. On the contrary, it's the other islands in the archipelago that attract a significant number of visitors, especially those who like unusual and unique experiences, adventure travel, and out of the way places.

But majority of visitors tend to be drawn to Efate island as it's the most convenient to visit, explore and find numerous accommodations and activities. The island's Bauerfield international airport also has a domstic airport, which serves to fly to some of the other islands in Vanuatu, such as the largest Santo island.
